    This is for all of you "middle-aged" viewers out there . . . .

    I come up with some really random ideas when I'm driving home from work each day, and this is one of them: What was the best "disco car"? In other words, what was the coolest car to be driving back in 1980 when you drove to the local disco to pick-up on chicks? I came up with a short list above, but please feel free to suggest others (I told you this was off-topic!).

    In 1980? A 1978 Trans-Am with T-tops, rally wheels, and an 8 track.

    Voted for the '80 'Vette. Why.....?

    Because I own a '79 L-82 T-top.

    BTW, for the record, Disco Sucks!

    How about a Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser. Couldn't you just see hanging a mirrored Disco ball in the back of one of these.

    I always hated Stationwagon type vehicles until I saw the Vista Cruiser... What a car. Someday, when I win the lottery I'm owning the Hurst 4-4-2 model and souping that baby up. Want to blow some kiddies away in a drag in thier little rice burners with the mosquito exhaust systems!!!

    yeah, but in 1980, how many teenagers could afford a Corvette, much less a Porsche. We had tons of Z-28's and Trans Am's in the school parking lot.

    i'm a bit young for this thread but wouldn't the ultimate car be a 1975 Holden HJ panel van with a sticker on the rear bumper saying the infamous or famous "if the vans a rockin don't come a knockin"

    Think one time in Belmar south Jersey I had something like 10 people in my 79 Camaro, I had to leave it in 1st gear cause I couldn't shift. Drove about 2 miles thru town to the place we were renting for the weekend. It was fun.
