Merry Christmas everyone! This week we want to know, what new vehicle would you spend $25k on in 1989?
In just a few days, even the final year of the 1980’s will be three decades in the past, and this has us reflecting on all the cool new metal one could buy for $25,000 at the time. That’s almost exactly $50k in 2018 money, a figure that may exclude 911s, Testarossas and Countachs, but still leaves plenty of room for other exciting, if slightly less exotic machinery.
