Models of the year 1993 can be registered as of today with the status of a collector's vehicle, which will allow quite a few interesting models to arrive in Israel by personal import on behalf of collectors. Here are some models we would love to see here on the roads

Honda CRX/Del Sol

At the same time as the presentation of the fifth generation of the Civic, Honda surprised with a small coupe that shares assemblies and basic design with the popular family car.

The new model was called CRX or Del Sol in the American market, and in fact it was not a coupe but a small, two-seater roadster with a hardtop with an electric folding option.

Del Sol 1.5 and 1.6 liter engines with variable valve timing was not a performance machine, but thanks to its light weight it was nimble enough and liked mainly by women.

How much will it cost?

Like quite a few Japanese women of the 90's, Del Sol prices have risen disproportionately in recent years, thanks in part to the popularity of Fast and Furious movies.

Base S models sell for around $8,000, but the more powerful and sought-after Si models cost nearly double that.

Quite a bit for a small roadster with front wheel drive.

We would rather go for a Mazda Miata in this price range, but know some Honda enthusiasts who would disagree with us.

Chevrolet Camaro

The fourth generation of the legendary muscle car entered the American market in early 1993 offering a generously sized body made of plastic, a modern design inspired by the Corvette, the latest injected engines and the option of choosing between a coupe configuration, a Freak T roof or a stylish convertible.

The Camaro was offered with a large variety of engines: from a weak 3.4-liter V6 with 160 hp to the LT1 engine with a volume of 5.7 liters in the Z28 version that came from the top Corvette with 305 hp and an option for a six-speed manual transmission.

how much will it cost

If you are going to make an effort then it must be a Camro with a V8 engine and even here the prices are already starting to rise.

Average examples in good condition sell for between $10,000 and $14,000, with preserved and/or sought-after Indy 500 edition examples selling for well over $20,000.

Translated into shekels, this means about NIS 100,000 at the very least.

Bentley Brooklands

Towards the year 1993, Bentley Brooklands was introduced as a replacement for the Bentley Mulsanne S as the basic limousine model in the aristocratic brand's offer.

Basic is of course a relative term for a car whose price at the time started at $156,000 and offered a passenger compartment entirely wrapped in fine leather and wood.

As was Bentley's way at the time, its models were of a sporty nature compared to the Rolls Royce counterparts on which they were based, as was the Brooklands, which uses the traditional 6.75-liter V8 engine.

Despite the name of a legendary race track, this is still a noble limousine and not a tire-smoking sports saloon like the turbo models that appeared later.

how much will it cost

The Brooklands is not one of Bentley's most desirable models, to say the least.

This means that in relation to her status and symbol, her prices are quite ridiculous.

You can find fairly preserved Rocklands with relatively low mileage in the price range of 20-25 thousand dollars.

British nobility at the price of a new family crossover.

However, it is important to carefully check the history and level of maintenance, since the costs of repairs if necessary are astronomical.

Jeep Grand Cherokee ZJ

Outdoor enthusiasts also have a reason to wait for the month of January.

The Grand Cherokee, launched as a 1993 model, was Jeep's answer to the great success of the Ford Explorer and Chevrolet Blazer.

Although the Grand Cherokee is considered a pampered and refined SUV compared to the tough Wranglers, but with live axles and robust dual-wheel drive it is still a real Jeep.

On the other hand, it also offers a modern quality of life in the passenger cabin and its equipped versions did not fall in the level of sophistication of the leading saloon cars of its time and the cubic design has a section even after 30 years.

how much will it cost

The range of versions and trim levels of the Grand Cherokee is large.

You can find examples in reasonable condition for only about 1500 dollars while the fancy V8 models are not much more expensive and sell in the area of ​​5-6 thousand dollars.

A fancy SUV with a beefy V8 engine and good off-road capability for about NIS 50,000?

Definitely sounds like a bargain to us, especially in relation to the prices in Israel, if you can find them.

were we wrong

We will fix it!
