I won't lie, I'd love to mess with people by driving a Toyota Cavalier

/Chevy Cavalier was my first car

FTFA: On Saab and Lancia:
"....the two irreverent automakers teamed up briefly in the early 1980s ..."

Yeah no...

I think the GMC Chevette (which got it's own article) was the weirdest of the bunch.

It's all very weird until you consider the idea that different car companies working together to produce models on the same platforms for different markets is pretty farking common.

I have a Saab 9-2x Aero, AKA a Saabaru. It's a great car. Terrible idea, but a great car nonetheless.

I loved my Geo Tracker (Suzuki Sidekick). Sure, it barely went 45 uphill in Denver's thin air, but it'd reliably get me to any campsite in the state (including a few at 10,000+ feet through pretty rough trails). Half the jeep dudes (older guys mostly) would give me my props, the other half would sneer.

I really wanted to get one of those beasties when they first appeared in the market, but I had some incredibly shiat jobs at the time and couldn't afford one. I was rolling around in a defective 1975 VW Bug (dubbed as "Puff The Tragic Wagen" by my mother because it was in the shop more often than on the road), a beat-up 1976 Volvo 242DL (it had over 200000 miles on it and terminal cancer, but I really liked that car), then inherited my mother's 88 Honda Civic after she passed away.

By the time I got a decent job, they weren't around anymore.
