Can you remember when Toyota made fun-to-drive sports cars? Or when a Playmate of the Year picked a vehicle from the Japanese automaker's lineup? You have to go back to the mid-1980s on both accounts. That's when Playboy Playmate of the Month for December 1984, Karen Velez, became the 1985 Playmate of the Year receiving a 1985 Toyota MR2 mid-engine sports car in the process.
The MR2 would last two more generations - the last of which we didn't receive in Canada. The last of these cars rolled off the assembly lines in 2007.
A 1967 Shelby GT500 Super Snake sold for $1.3 million. Do you think classic cars were made better than modern rides?

- Yes, the quality of cars from the 1960s and '70s is the best
