The third-generation Suzuki Jimny replaced the popular Samurai with a contemporary look and improved capabilities, while retaining its compact, rugged charm. Recognized for its off-road abilities and versatile customization options, the Jimny stands as a unique choice, especially as European and Japanese models become eligible for import to the U.S. Its entry into the American market introduces a fresh option for enthusiasts seeking a compact and capable off-roader with a distinct personality.

1993-2003 Volkswagen Eurovan

The Volkswagen Eurovan stood out in the 90s as a compact pop-top camper van, becoming a cherished option for van life enthusiasts. The initial non-camper versions underwhelmed with their 2.5-liter I-5 engines, but the real appeal lay in the camper variants like the Weekender and the Winnebago conversions. Despite poor sales leading to just a single year’s run in 1993, Winnebago brought the model back in 1995 for conversion treatments, and the Eurovan returned in 1999 with a stronger VR6 engine. Although it remained a niche choice, today, a well-kept Eurovan camper fetches between $35,000 and $45,000. This makes it a more budget-friendly entry into van camping compared to newer conversions, and there’s a robust community and plenty of resources available for maintaining these older vans.

The early 1990s Honda Civic Si hatchback finds itself in a sweet spot for collectors today, albeit overshadowed by later coupe models. After decades of being a reliable and affordable option, many were either heavily used or modified. Now, pristine examples are resurfacing and fetching prices from $10,000 to $20,000. The 1992 model debuted with a VTEC I-4 engine, offering a modest 125 horsepower but massive potential for modifications. Its lightweight and agile nature, compared to heavier modern vehicles, makes it particularly engaging to drive. Even in stock form, the Civic Si charms with its zippy performance and practical features such as the two-piece rear hatch and an appealing, functional interior.
