Cheat sheet to the sweet ‘80s cars from Ready Player One


In Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One, the year is 2045 and the global economy, climate, and political structures are in dire straits. The only reprieve is a virtual reality called the OASIS, which hosts a massive Easter egg hunt for immeasurable real-world wealth. For us, the hunt is just as much about the nostalgia we feel as we are along for the ride..
