    The first year marks the birth of the SC, so it's getting my vote

    Of course, I'm biased because I have a 93 but I like the older syle front end look plus the "2nd Gen" rear end look plus the stock wheels. This particular combination of appearance items is only the 93.

    I voted for the 95, least made and best looking. But I own a 93.

    I voted for 93..... the reason I even would buy a SC was because I like the looks of the original front & rear of the car. then in 92 .. led rear trunk lights was a plus. and the smaller fuel tank allow the exhaust to be easier to configure was also good too.

    89 Gets my vote. People think its much newer like 1993 or so.

    I Think a 94-95 5speed with early sc rims would look good

    I like the 93, it was the last year for the old body style (Which I like, nothing wrong with the 94 95 just not for me ) , LED rear lights, new brake system and has to be a 5-speed.

    I'm with Flip, though I think my 91 rides much more solid. Has a better feel on the road.

    I vote 93 for all of the above reasons, they should have thrown the 94 blower and oiling on the 93, it would have been KING!

    I love them all but 94-95 dash just wraps around you in comfort. The only improvement would be to use the 89-93 front end.

    1989 - First year production, cleanest styling (shared with '90 and '91). It's the original design intent of the stylists. All too often, there seems to be pressure to come up with something "fresh" in the styling department after a couple of years. I think this usually ends up being an exercise in "what can we change even though it dosen't need to be changed". Personally, I don't see why they changed the tail lights in '92; I don't feel they go with the lines of the car at all. The front end changes in the later years look like a forced styling exercise to me.

    But, that's only my opinion. The majority seem to stongly prefer the later model styling, and hate the earlier cars. Personally, I don't "dislike" any of them. If I run across a nice one of ANY year, it's going home with me. Also, the '95 5-speed gets the nod for rarity.

    Best year for the SC

    I vote for the 94-95.I own a 91 and a 94 both 5 spds my 91 has 87k and my 94 has 200k. Both are in good mechanical condition but the 94 rides better and performs better than my 91. I like the 94 so much I am selling the 91.

    Can't really say there was a "best" year. But fun to discuss. I said 94 since that's what I have and it is the lowest overall production year for the SC. But the year the most SC's were made should be considered too since, the more of these cars were made the better, especially since they're slowly disappearing.

    93 is still the best year IMO.

    Better braking system
    NO EGR
    The proper fuel tank
    The Original styling (with updated rims)
    Steel Valve covers
