My Dad bought a '79 one, in bright yellow. It was actually a very good car and quicker than the Rabbits of the day. It became my first car when I turned 16 in '86. I abused that poor thing but it took me and many friends where ever we wanted to go. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

ok, i was born in 1979.
What car from that model year would you buy..?
Fiesta, Rabbit, Civic, RX-7, 200SX, Cressida, that's about the only cars from that year I'd even consider.
I'd actually really like to find a ~1979 Cressida - they've become rare as hen's teeth by attrition and they're funky pieces of Japanese car history. The MX41 Cressida was an attractive car... dropped on watanabes or some other retro Japanese wheel with fender-mounted mirrors, it would be divine.
