I recent penned a blog post regarding five vehicles I never see on the road anymore—vehicles that have seemingly vanished. Here I would like to share five vehicles that I somehow can’t avoid seeing, even though they are all long out of production.

Cadillac Auto Show Display

Cadillac at the 2016 Chicago Auto Show

2016 Chicago Auto ShowThe 2016 Chicago Auto Show opened its doors last week, and naturally Consumer Guide was there to cover all the new-vehicle introductions (which you can check out here). While the gleaming machines on display are obviously the main attractions at any major auto show, the manufacturer displays themselves are another key part of the magic. The displays are often much more than just the frame around the picture—they’re marvelous feats of architectural engineering that help a given brand stake out its space and stand out on the show floor.

1992 Acurua Legend

At $35,175, the Acura Legend LS Sedan was the 5th most-expensive Japanese car of 1992.

Why 1992? Because ‘92 was the year one of my favorite cars of the Nineties, the Lexus SC, went on sale in the U.S. Also, by 1992 all three of the Japanese luxury brands (Acura, Infiniti, and Lexus) were up and fully operational, and giving U.S. and German premium carmakers fits.
