Most Iconic Cars: 1980s-2000s

Welcome back to our historical iconic car series! This is the last article in the series, and we will be covering the 1980s-early 2000s. Without further ado, here are the last few cars…

1980s: DeLorean DMC-12

This car is without a doubt an icon for the ages. Despite its poor qualities when it comes to its weight, price, and overall power, this vehicle sets itself apart in terms of its unique design. After all, this was the time machine in Back to the Future, making it recognizable for more than one reason. But it’s the gull-winged doors and unpainted stainless steel body that made this car so unique.

1990s: 1992 Ford Crown Victoria Police Inspector

If you were ever a speed-demon on the road, you’d probably catch one of the Crown Victoria Police Inspectors flashing its lights right behind you. While this car certainly isn’t everyone’s favorite for obvious reasons, it’s made its mark as being strikingly identifiable, even without flashing lights and a local police logo slapped on the side. But you also might have seen the CVPI in yellow. When these vehicles retire, the majority of them go on to be used as taxi cabs. Luckily, the CVPI can travel a few hundred thousand miles, making them perfect for police and taxi use.

Early 2000s: Hummer H2

While there were a number of great cars that came out in the early 2000s, the Hummer H2 took the country by storm in 2003. Whether you like this car or not, there is a pretty high chance that you knew someone that owned an H2, or saw one on the road at least every day during the height of its popularity. Unfortunately when the economy began to collapse, we saw less and less of this gas-guzzler on the road, and a high number of them for sale. A car this large using gallons upon gallons of fuel was just too much for many families, which sparked the downfall of the H2 for years to come.

We hope you have enjoyed this three part series as much as we have!
