And here’s a driveway scene:
The Volvo 240 is a vehicle that looks unfortunate as a 2 door. I think most buyers agreed. The notchback A body Cutlass makes for a very good looking sedan, one that I like more and more as the years go by.
Perhaps not quite as unfortunate as the coupe version?
That Cutlass looks to be in quite nice shape. It’s an ’80 (I think), uniquely identified by the indicators being angled between the grille shell and lamps. Also the only year for the notchback sedan with dual rather than quad headlights.
I will respectfully disagree; I think the 240 looks much better as a 2 door. I saw a tastefully resto-modded 240 2 door yesterday … slightly lowered, round headlights, black and silver steel wheels and it looked just perfect, even in beige. But of these vehicles, I like the ‘burb.
Totally want the Surburban just randomly driving by…
Currently the generation of Jetta pictured is almost ubiquitous in North Florida, and except for the car at the tail end of the line which I am not 100% sure of, is the car I find most “troubling” from a styling standpoint. I can easily live with a 2 door Volvo, but those Jettas always struck me as looking “cutdown”, like a car that had 6 or more inches cut out of the wheelbase.
I think it would be a toss-up between the Olds and the Camaro. I would buy the Olds to own but buy the Camaro to flip.
Behind the 96-97 Taurus is a 2007-2011 Camry
Eugene’s little corner of the Midwest? 🙂
Wow, tough choice. Sentimentally speaking I should choose the Volvo, hairy-chestedly speaking it should be the ‘Mero, longroofedly speaking it should be the Suburban, but that Bora/Jetta is my favourite shape from my favourite generation so that one wins.
