In the 1980’s and ’90s, the enthusiast scene gravitated in a big way towards Golden Age Muscle, the 2000s were all about vintage Europeans, and the latter half of the 2010s have seen a big come-up for all things Bubble Era and Japanese.
All three categories are likely to remain heavy hitters among collectors, with each niche bringing something unique and special to the table–a styling theme, an engineering philosophy, or even entire vehicle types rendered obsolete by the passage of time, ever-tightening regulations, and shifting market demographics.
With that said, we want to know–what’s the next big thing? Why? What currently-under-the-radar type of vehicle do you think will be the next to attract the attention of nostalgic enthusiasts? Why?
As always, a $25 BaT Store gift certificate will be awarded to the winner, and a select few comments will be highlighted as honorable mentions in next week’s recap/fresh QotW.

This 1977 Toyota Stout is a JDM double-cab from the penultimate year of second-gen production, and provides some very interesting contrasts to earlier Mk2 Stouts sold here in North America from ~1964-’68. For one, our versions were never offered with more than two doors, and they also featured different interiors, grilles and other details from this late-production example. Power comes from a 2.0-liter 5R OHV four driving the rear wheels through a column-shifted 4-speed manual, where US trucks came exclusively with a 1.9-liter 3R-B with the same trans setup. The truck looks to be in solid, usable driver-level condition throughout, with changes from stock apparently limited to a two-tone paint scheme. Find it here on Goo Net in Hamamatsu, Japan for 1.76m JPY (~$16k USD today). Special thanks to BaT reader Kyle K. for this submission.

A few of the comments that stood out to us yesterday:
“@sludgo, if i get completely stupid and bid this up for a winning number you would be welcome to help me navigate this time capsule round this town. In fact, we can drive it over to see my dad at a gas station I bought so he could have an office and a place to work. My dad is 89 and work he does. We are the only place in the area that pumps 100 octane. After we grabbed some BBQ (yes at the gas station) We could fill this baby up and Just keep driving. There are some pretty good twisties right…”
“I will chime in here as the guy that won one of these on BaT a few weeks ago. These things are amazing.
You get your body easily in the little guy and you feel like you are 16. It’s your first time driving stick. Your mind has to think about using a gas pedal that seems like it’s directly in front of the passenger. You wonder what this clutch situation is going to be like.
A note here about vehicle entry. You just get in. I’m 43 and I just got in. I have a couple P cars and you…”
“Doesn’t get more iconic than this. Those who grew up in the 90s (see: born in the 80s) had at least one, likely more, of the Matchbox/HotWheels versions. Throw in an AMT/Revell model kit and a poster on the wall and the legacy is cemented. A bit mind-bending to think such an iconic car is now available to purchase – albeit at a price – for us to drive as adults.”
