What kind of car would a high school star athlete drive in 1987?

Asked by lilakess (789points) February 2nd, 2007
For this kid, money isn't really a problem, within reason. Also, what kind of music might he like. Specificity will be helpful. Thanks.

I would read through "American Psycho" for music and car references--I think that he might not be that different from Patrick Bateman in those tastes.

I would suggest at late 70's Camero, Chevelle or Corvette, maybe tricked-up with some big sound device, definately a 4 or 5 speed manual transmission and Craig Supersport Chrome "mag" wheels. Music, never go wrong with the Rolling Stones.

This kid would drive an El Camino, with dingle berries. He would be listening Def Leppard on the cassette player.

I graduated H.S. in 1984, and I agree with the suggestions for a souped-up 'muscle car' suggestions like Camaro, Firebird, Mustang or Corvette. If you think he may be a little more contemporary, maybe a Nissan 280Z.

I graduated in 1987. I was a jock...not rich enough for porche or corvette.....I had a old school 1966 mustang with a 289 V8.....3 speed stick that marked 140mph
