Classic television series, childhood games, and music from luminaries such as Fela, King Sunny Ade, Funmi Adams, Orits Wiliki, and others come to mind when you think about the 1980s and 1990s. Many of us, on the other hand, forget about the cars we used to drive on the big highways. If you weren’t alive during the time, you might not have seen these cars.

In this post, we have prepared a list of the top 10 best old vehicles from the 1980s and 1990s. If you had one of these cars back then, you were considered a “big guy.”

1. Volkswagen Beetle

The Volkswagen Beetle was one of Nigeria’s first automobiles. The car is often referred to as a “Tortoise car” because of its odd design. This car was once only accessible to the elite, but it is now a popular hangout for dust, vermin, and insects.

2. Peugeot 504

The Peugeot 504 soon became the standard car when it initially arrived in Nigeria. You will come across one on every Nigerian street. If you worked for the government and didn’t have a Peugeot 504 at the time, you were referred to as a “JJC.”

3. Peugeot 505

The Peugeot 505, like the Peugeot 504, was a sturdy car capable of handling Nigeria’s harsh roads and terrain. Several government bodies and companies selected it as the official vehicle throughout its reign.

4. Volvo 244 GL

This car holds a unique place in Nigerian history because it was the best vehicle for wooing females at the time.

5. Mercedes-Benz 230E

The Mercedes-Benz 230E was the vehicle of choice for Nigeria’s middle and upper classes at the time. It was odd to come across a wealthy individual who did not own one.

In the 1980s and 1990s, other popular vehicles included:

6. Peugeot 404

7. Peugeot 505

8. Mercedes Benz 560 SEL

9. Mitsubishi Galant 1980
