Great things happened in the car world in the final decade of the 20th Century. Not least of which was the creation of a small gathering of enthusiasts in West Sussex under the name of ‘The Festival of Speed’.
It was also the era when a lot of the innovations we now take for granted became established from airbags to ESC. Even fuel injection didn’t really displace the carburettor in new cars until then. We’ve already picked the best supercars, hot hatches and even homologation specials from the decade so it’s about time we talked about the normal(ish) stuff too.
