For those of you unfamiliar with the world of guitars, reissues models are big business. Models from certain time periods are held in high regard for their superior sound and playability. Manufacturers like Fender and Gibson try to take advantage of this by producing new guitars that use methods and materials from those time periods and call them reissues.

Gibson True Historic 1959 Les Paul. Yours for only $8,599.

Fender American Vintage ‘65 Stratocaster. $2,299.

What I’ve been thinking about is what if car and truck manufacturers were able to do this. Obviously this isn’t feasible in the real world as the cost would be astronomical and many methods and materials from the past aren’t practical or even legal anymore, but let’s suspend that and daydream a bit.


Which model(s) would you want to see brought back as a “reissue”?
