The DeLorean definitely stood out from the crowd in the '80s.

Ah, the '80s — the time of big hair, MTV and underpowered cars.

The decade wasn't a total loss, though. You could find a few diamonds in the rough. You can still find them today, too, with a discerning eye.

Here are our favorite used '80s dream cars, with current used prices from Kelly Blue Book. REO Speedwagon not included.

'85-'89 Volkswagen GTI

High: $5,995
Low: $4,100
Average: $4,865

Compare: 2009 Volkswagen GTI vs. 1989 Volkswagen GTI

One of the original hot hatches, an old GTI in good condition can still cost you some cash.

'85-'89 Ford Mustang 5.0

High: $48,995
Low: $1,900
Average: $7,924

Compare: 2010 Ford Mustang GT vs. 1989 Ford Mustang GT

Not just a fixture in Vanilla Ice videos, the 5.0 was a potent performer on the strip and in the skate rink parking lot.

'84-'89 C4 Corvette

High: $44,000
Low: $2,500
Average: $10,018

Compare: 2010 Chevy Corvette vs. 1989 Chevy Corvette

The fourth-gen Corvette can still be had at a decent price, not many rear-wheel-drive coupes from the era can match it.

'87-'89 Pontiac Firebird Trans-Am

High: $22,900
Low: $4,000
Average: $10,293

Unbelievably, the 1987 Trans-Am only made 210 horsepower from its Tuned Port Injection V8 engine, but it looks much faster in red.

'84-'87 Buick Grand National

High: $31,700
Low: $9,000
Average: $17,442

The Buick Grand National is the height of '80s bad-assed-ness. Your parents didn't want you to hang out with the guy that drove it.

'81-'82 DeLorean DMC-12

High: $26,900
Low: $15,998
Average: $22,572

Mr. Fusion not included, the underpowered DeLorean didn't go much past 88 mph, but that was enough.

'81-'89 Lotus Esprit

High: $41,998
Low: $16,495
Average: $23,535

The Esprit was way ahead of its time. One of the biggest Lotus cars ever looks fresh even now.

'88-'89 BMW M3

High: $65,000
Low: $14,500
Average: $24,417

Compare: 2010 BMW M3 vs. 1989 BMW M3

The E30 was the first hopped-up 3-Series that Bavaria produced. The 2.3-liter made almost 200 horsepower, fantastic for its time.

'83-'85 Ferrari 308 GTS

High: $44,950
Low: $32,900
Average: $37,878

At home in Robin's nest in Hawaii, Magnum's 308 was the real star of the show, next to Tom Selleck's mustache.

'81-'89 Porsche 911 Turbo

High: $78,500
Low: $24,900
Average: $40,669

Compare: 2009 Porsche 911 Turbo vs. 1989 Porsche 911 Turbo

They say art is timeless. The 911 is today what it was 20 years ago, the standard in sports cars.
