Do you own a cool Modern Classic? We want to know about it

Do you own a cool Modern Classic? We want to know about it

If you have something cool from the ‘80s, ‘90s, or ‘00s hidden away, we want to feature it in Wheels magazine

Do you have a cult classic sitting in your garage, and think the world needs to know more about its history? Well, we’d like to hear about it.

As many of you would know, when Wheels was redesigned at the start of the year, we added a new section called Modern Classic, where we take a chance to look back at some of the cooler or lesser known metal of the past several decades.

Now is your chance to be featured, as we are on the hunt for more Modern Classics to feature.

The list of yesteryear heroes that we have already featured include the Nissan R32 Skyline GT-R, BMW E46 M3 CSL, Alfa Romeo SZ, Mitsubishi Lancer Evo VI Tommi Makinen Edition, Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.3-16, Peugeot 205 GTi, Mazda FD X-7, Ferrari F355, Honda Insight, Lamborghini LM002, Porsche 911 996.1 GT3, and Audi Ur Quattro.

Each have been treated to a full photoshoot with our world-class photographers, and been featured across four pages in the Overrun section of our magazine.

The criteria for Modern Classic is pretty simple: it has to have been built in either the ‘80s, ‘90s, or ‘00s, and have a cult following.

Scratching your head to the kind of metal that would be appropriate? Our current wish list of Modern Classic feature cars includes, but is not limited to, a Honda NSX, BMW Z3 M or Z4 M coupe, Toyota Supra, Dodge Viper, Honda Integra Type R, Autozam AZ-1, Tickford TE50/TS50, Subaru Impreza 22B STi, Audi RS2, BMW E39 M5, Lamborghini Diablo, Lancia Delta Integrale, and Volvo 850R.

Think you have what we are looking for, or know someone that does? Send us a message at wheels@wheelsmag.com.au, or send us a DM on Facebook!

Let us know in the comments below what Modern Classic you would like to see and read about in a future issue of Wheels, and we will try our hardest to track it down.
