Probably. The table is several years old..... The associated article might still be available online.

I'm sure we talked about this here before but I can't find it right now. But the link to the full article is probably there.

I have driven a 57 Thunderbird......it handles like a pickup truck from the 60s. It does not come close to a Mercedes 190SL, which did not even get on the chart.

And what happened to Austin Healey?

Read the chart. The yellow ones are the "Poseur-oids."

Must have been ahead of its time then
Just saying I think they were considered that, back then.

Wow, under collectibles, there are 38 cars, and only 6 of them that made the list are made here in the USA. To me it seems a bit crazy, that of all American sports cars, the Fiero is one in 6 as far as a collectible? (The other 5 being a Stutz Bearcat, a Delorean, a Corvette, a Viper and a Shelby Mustang) Though that sounds great, it seems a bit hard to believe.
