why don't they simply restart the old production lines of good old cars instead of making shitty expensive new cars?

      Because they get more profits (and data) from the more expensive new cars.

      I think most manufacturers could go back 10-15 years by adding newer emissions equipment.

    The old equipment was torn out to put in new equipment. Pakistan, Iran and various other countries are making the based 80s/ 90s cars in current year.

    Also you have to drive something so $25k 3cyl turbo Crossovers are better than the bus, and you will buy a new one shortly after the warranty expires cause there's no point in keeping it on the road for 40 years

      The steering wheels ends up on the wrong side though. But importing one for the rust free parts would be nice. Im sure someone is interested in those ricer facelift parts too.

      I want all car regulations to be reset to 2004 or whatever the last time it was reasonable.

    - The lines don't exist anymore, you have to start at zero
    - Making those cars is illegal now
    - Lack of reliability is the direct result of customer/lawmaker demand for highly integrated and computerized cars

    Making cars "like they used to" is not a possibility, not because the companies can't develop such cars, but because the overall environment makes it impossible.

    Toyota still sells the Land Cruiser 70 in Australia brand new, it's $80k starting and you're realistically getting it for $100k out the door

    with the increasing prices owning a vehicle doesnt make any finanical sense. out of 5 work days a single day is just for paying for your car. I sold my car years 2 years ago and started working 4 days instead 5 and I pretty much have the same money left at the end of the month. I am sure some morons who take big loans probably work 2 days just to pay their car of. sorry for the rant, I am just so fed up with the prices.

    It would be illegal because cars must meet the emissions limits, safety regulations and driver assistance systems.

    All the tooling needed to make them is either lost, worn out, or scrapped. Redoing all of it would be prohibitively expensive.
