1985 Mercedes-Benz 500SEC
If you're a fan of vintage Japanese cars, be sure to check out Nissan's online heritage site. There are tons of vintage Nissan pics and specs going all the way back to the 1920s. Each featured car or truck has relevant specs and a little "detail" tab that gives some background on that specific car.
The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.

The smoothed-over styling of the W126 S-Class signaled a newfound focus on aerodynamics and fuel-efficiency. With a coefficient of drag 14 percent better than the previous model and curb weights starting around 3,600 pounds, this generation of S-Class was quite efficient for its time in its six-cylinder and diesel forms when compared to that era’s large American sedans. Safety and occupant protection were also unparalleled, with a driver airbag offered through most of the model run and a passenger-side airbag introduced in 1989 (and made standard in 1990). Traction control was also introduced, as were seat-belt pretensioners.
For the U.S., W126 Mercedes-Benz S-Class models can be split into two groups: 1979-1985 and 1986-1991. For those first years, the U.S. got the 380SE/SEL and 500SEL (both V-8) models, while after a thorough mid-cycle update in 1986 America officially got the 300SE/SEL (in-line six-cylinder), 420SEL, and 560SEL (V-8). SEC (coupe) models were offered in 380 and 500 form for those first years and 420 and 560 form after the mid-cycle refresh. 380 models (and even 420 models until near the end of the W126’s run) are widely considered to be emissions-strangled, and from 1986 the 300 models felt nearly as quick as the U.S.-spec 420
