The world of 1980s cars includes a lot of crazy ones — and today, I’m showing you a few of the craziest. These five cars are all currently listed for sale on Autotrader. They’re all a bit nuts — but they’re all very cool. So, here are the five craziest 1980s cars currently listed for sale on Autotrader.
The Buick Regal GNX was the ultimate, extra-rare, high-performance version of the Buick Grand National — and it’s a very special car. Few GNX models were made, and even fewer survived like this, with just 460 miles from new. This GNX is offered in truly mint condition by RK Motors in Charlotte for $179,900 — huge money, but probably worth it to someone who wants the ultimate in American cars. Find a Buick Regal for sale
The 1980s Dodge Dakota is a car that was never preserved — except for this one. Here’s a 1988 Dodge Dakota with a truly unbelievable 2,500 miles from new — and while typically one might struggle to believe such an odometer reading, a quick look at this car’s condition will easily prove that it’s scarcely been driven. It’s truly in tremendous shape, though it’s hard to imagine anyone interested in a time capsule Dakota. Still, it’s very cool, and it’s offered by Skyway Classics in Florida for $15,997.

The GMC Sierra was a run-of-the-mill 1980s pickup — but this particular GMC Sierra isn’t. Although the ad doesn’t explain exactly what engine is in this Sierra, it’s sticking out the hood — so it’s probably something massive. This truck also has all sorts of buttons and switches equipped for drag racing, and I bet it’s phenomenally insane on the road — or on the drag strip. It’s offered by Lake Helen Auto in Florida for $19,900. Find a GMC Sierra for sale
The Lamborghini Countach is one of the most iconic supercars ever made — and nice examples are getting tremendously hard to find. This is precisely that, though: a gorgeous Countach, finished in black, with fantastically 1980s-looking gold wheels. It’s also traveled under 10,000 miles from new, which is a pretty impressive feat. This Countach is offered by Ferrari of Denver in the Denver area for just under $440,000.

Although most Pontiac Fiero replica models are horribly done and scarcely resemble the vehicle they’re trying to replicate, this particular Fiero replica does an amazing job. It’s intended to be a replica of the Ferrari Boxer, and it really nails it — though I suspect it might not look quite as good in person, as the Boxer is quite a bit longer than a Fiero. Still, it’s very well done, and a quick glance would have you thinking this is a Boxer — and if you can’t afford the real thing, this is offered by a private seller in Katy, Texas, for $19,900.
