They are really fun to drive too. Aside from the wicked torque-steer. :P

Had a friend who had one in high school, when it was only a few years old. Still spent a lot of time in the shop to get the "disneyland" dash to work correctly. Was a ton of fun, though...

Not Chrysler, but still uncommon for Detroit. Try finding one of these nowadays :|

When I think about japanese cars that were very common in the 80s, 90s and early 00 and are almost extinct now, I think about these three:

Toyota Corolla RV-Wagon 4WD

Image
Image

Toyota Tercel 4WD

Image
Image

Subaru Leone III

Image

They were very popluar, almost every medical doctor, every vet, every farmer in rural areas in snowy Austria had one of them, but now they are all gone (excessive rust). Almost all are replaced by VW Golf 4motion or Skoda Octavia 4WD now... :roll:

I had one of these, and not all that long ago, either. I really liked it.
