I am a big fan of the American high-emission era. I love the smell, love the raw big-block V8 power and the styling is almost always fantastic.

I have a '68 DeVille with an unrestricted 472 (7.7L). My summer dd is an LT1 powered '95 Fleetwood Brougham and the winter beater is an L05 powered '93 Caprice 9C1

Early '60s to early '70s. Lots of variety from mild to wild.

The heyday of the Japanese sports car. Supra, 300ZX, third gen RX7, 3000GT/Stealth... NSX... second gen Eclipse, second gen Integra R... first/second gen Miata, MR2, MRS...

Also the final years of the air-cooled Porsche 911s.

The 1968 Deville sure is a sweet car, is it a coupe or a sedan? I would love to own one of those someday, gotta love power of the 472 motor, is the high emission era the pre-1971 cars?
