Cheap Wheels

Perhaps one of the most unexpected automotive icons of the Eighties is Toyota’s humble Hachi-Roku, Japanese for “8-6.” This nickname refers to Toyota’s AE86 model code for the top 1600 GT APEX performance version of the Japanese-market 1983-1987 Corolla Levin and closely related Sprinter Trueno. (The latter is a pop-culture star for its central role in the Japanese street-racing manga Initial D). Lesser known is the pair’s American-market cousin, the 1985-87 Toyota Corolla GT-S. It’s the AE86 we want to wring out for Cheap Wheels.

2023 Chrysler 300C

2023 Chrysler 300C

With its aggressive and blocky styling and available V8 power, the 300 was a bold affront to the sleek Concord it replaced in Chrysler showrooms back in 2005. Gone was the Concord’s “cab forward” design, replaced by the 300’s long hood and huge, aggressive grille.

Future Collectibles: 2021 Ram 1500 TRX

2021 Ram 1500 TRX

Collectible Automobile Magazine

Note: The following story was excerpted from the October 2021 issue of Collectible Automobile magazine.

Over two generations, Ford’s F-150 Raptor has demonstrated there’s a market for high-performance trucks with serious off-road capability. As Ford prepared the third-generation Raptor, Ram introduced the 1500 TRX as a 2021 model, which it said was inspired by the idea of a powerful truck capable of off-road speeds over 100 mph. The company called TRX the “Apex Predator of the Truck World,” communicating Ram’s belief the Raptor has been big-footed by their meaner “Tyrannosaurus rex.” One-upmanship aside, this beast swooped into the craziness known as 2020 and we think it’s one of the year’s four-wheeled highlights.
