Cars We Loved in the 1980s Paperback



It was brash and it was loud - the 1980s put paid to the glumness of the '70s and nowhere was that more obvious than in the cars we drove, which took a quantum leap in durability, performance, equipment and style.

They had to: Japanese quality and European design were luring away ever more customers.

Features such as fuel injection, turbochargers, computer-controlled systems and four-wheel drive became commonplace.

This was also the decade that brought us the people-carrier and the off-roader, new classes of car that radically reshaped family transport.

Meanwhile, seatbelt-wearing became law, the M25 opened, speed cameras appeared and ram-raiding was the new motoring nemesis.

Relive everything car-related in Britain in the 1980s with Giles Chapman.
