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 Kids On The Block

The 80s rivalry continues... The 959 was the tech car utilizing computers and systems to achieve its unheard speed that would most certainly appease the Bill Gates of the world (and did), while the F40 was the turbocharged leviathan that planned to rip your head off with unseen performance and a the lust Ferrari hadn't made since Lamborghini showed up. Did the 959's overcomplicated geekiness and puff-the-magic-dragon-wouldn't-even-smoke-this styling keep it from the Breakfast Club, and did the F40's age old ethos of attaining performance and its bare-minimum interior stop it from being the car that brought you back to those 16 candles?
