I still daily a 2000 LS400, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone looking for a car to buy. I just drive it still because it would be more expensive to get another car than to keep what I have. Every time I look for parts it's like 50/50 whether it'll be NLA. On top of that something like a 96 Corolla is just not going to fare well in a small overlap collision compared to something made in the last ~10 years. If I wanted a fun, mostly practical daily as a first car I would just get something like a Scion FR-S/BRZ/86, Civic Si, GTI, etc. Something reasonably good on fuel with a manual.Hey!! I still daily my 1996 Corolla but then it's a Corolla. Also your point is valid as I see less and less 90s cars on the road in the daily commute to work and back. 80s cars, well, I'd see very little of them making their way to work along side the rest of the fleet of modern 2000s+ stuff.
