the older subies were terrible in reliability. And the culture at the time definitely influenced my preference on vehicles back then. Back then it was all about JDM's, didn't matter which kind, if it was a JDM it "drove great." Yea right....Until you actually own a few of them and see how cheap and high exaggerated some of these cars were.
Nissan Fairlady being a perfect example. The Nissan Sylvias, the Honda CRX, Acura Integras to TSX, RSX, G35's, TOYOTA MR2 holy cow was that car bad.
