This is The Opposite Locker - Wayback Wednesdays where we try and sort out the cool from the square. This is a discussion system detailing how cool an older car was, not how fast, fun, or frivolous it may have been, but how well it looks in the cat's pajamas. But, you may be asking, what makes a car cool, anyways?

Wayback Wednesdays are like the normal Opposite Locker, save for the advanced age of the cars on the block. For this series of posts, try and perceive the vehicle as if you were living in the time period of the car's release, and then base your vote upon its coolness, taking into consideration the evolution of culture.

New Kid On The Block

BMW is the only luxury German automaker that has no current supercar. Enthusiasts and Journalists alike, constantly reference the M1 to BMW in an attempt to sway them into competing for the supercar market. Currently a memorial from the 1980s with it's designer-only-has-a-ruler-at-arm's-reach-and-is-too-lazy-to-grab-any-thing-else styling, the BMW M1 failed to reach the pinnacle poster status with the likes of the Countach, Diablo, or pretty much anything else made by Lamborghini. Was the M1 really a supercar we all wish to remember so fondly? Was the M1 cool?
