The Cars and Trucks of 1980s TV Shows

As a kid growing up in the 1980s, one of my best memories is the amazing variety of TV shows that starred the cars and trucks of the day. Although these vehicles were amazing in so many ways, the acting was a different story.  And now looking back some of these vehicles are very rudimentary when you compare them to some of the most basic of today’s cars.  Nevertheless, I would love to have any one of these in a collection some day.

Here is a list of some of the most iconic cars from the hit shows of the decade.  Please feel free to leave a comment with your vote for the favourite choice from the list below.

Dukes of Hazzard aired from 1979 – 1985

The General Lee – 1969 Dodge Charger

  1. Hey, I’m a muscle car fanatic! I love them all. I must mention though that one of my favorites was also the yellow Baracuda that Don Johnson use to drive. I do however have a tendency to lean towards Chrysler/ Dodge/ Plymoth products. I have driven at least one of the most popular American made muscle cars in my life time, but haven’t had the pleasure of driving some of the foreign made ones. Hmmm, that maybe needs to go on my bucket list.

  2. I got this site from my buddy who shared with me regarding this web page and at the moment this time I am visiting this site and reading
    very informative articles at this time.
