Default Cars you'd like to see brought back?

We all have cars we'd like to see live to see the light of a production facility again. Name some you'd wanna see!

I'll start.

1) Chevrolet El Camino

2) Any GMC that goes fast, something reminiscent of the SyTy days.

3) Buick Wildcat and/or Riviera

4) Firebird Trans-Am, if only Pontiac wasn't dead.

5) Bonneville SSEi/Buick Regal GS (this one is happening, yay!)

6) Chevrolet Bel-Air

7) A Cadillac that's retro. I'm thinking a throwback to the 60 Special or something like that.

8) A Corvette special edition with a Stingray styling throw back.

Weirdo, they are rumored to be bringing back the Stingray in 2013.

The Grand Touring Ford Thunderbird, not the retro grandpa edition. Styling would be something along the lines of the 2012 BMW 6 series. They could completely reuse the 1989 Suspension design.

Leave the Chevelle dead, its legacy should rest, just like the Torino.

I think same thing for the Grand National. But they could make something similar.

anything not ugly. i like how cars looked from the 60s-80s. anyone else? i also like how they weren't FWD aluminum cans lined with cheap plastic and airbags. i want to see a muscle car that actually looks like a muscle car

Hmm...

#1. Subaru 22B. Basically a factory built all out rally machine made road legal and sold at dealerships. They only made about 400 of these, but if I could afford one I'd love to have it.

#2. 1986 Toyota Corolla GT-S. Very, very light, and RWD. The re-creation of this is the FT-86, which is going to be heavier than the original 86 corolla, but I love the idea of it having a boxer engine.

#3. GMC Syclone. AWD turbocharged truck. Fast, dependable, and able to haul stuff if needed. Even better than an LS swapped S10.

#4. 1955 Chevy Bel-Air. One of my dream cruising machines.

#5. 1965 Impala SS. Same as above but with more power.
