A maroon mid/late 90's T'bird V8 Bill Elliott edition.
Can't be too many of those around.

Saw a late 80s Range Rover that looked a little rough, a ~1991 300E that looked brand new, a very nice 190E, a battered Karmann Ghia with an old fashioned roof rack, and a ~1970 Mercury Montego on a car hauler.

Saw two more early 80s El Caminos. That is three this week, hadn't seen one for a long time before that.

...very rough white early 1990s Buick Roadmaster Estate wagon at a repair shop at Bleigh and Oxford Ave. in NE Philly. The whole car was filled with junk. Sad. I'd much rather have a proper full-size station wagon rather than any SUV, minivan, or crossover.

Me too. The wife and I actually entertained the thought of trading our '93 Caprice Classic in on a new '96 wagon when we heard they were being discontinued. The wife always wanted an "Estate" wagon. Cooler heads prevailed however.

Probably early 90s or so, coupe, V6.
Not too many of those still around.

I bought an '89-model Beretta GT new on 9/3/88. I was vascillating between it and a Z24 Cavalier (which was built near where I lived). I called my insurance man to see which would cost more to insure. He told me the Z24, even though it had the identical engine and trans. I ended up going with the Beretta which looking back I think was a bit sharper looking.

The girl I dated in high school had a black 88 Beretta GT.

I think Berettas were sharp looking for the time, even up to the mid 90s.
You rarely see any on the road anymore. Now that has become an obscure car!

Mine was red (commonplace), but it did have a light beige ribbed corduroy interior, when most all of them were grey inside. It was before they started adding dopey (IMHO) graphics and spoilers and ground-effects, etc. Mine had the optional aluminum lace-style wheels, but the Beretta GT was one of the few cars of that time IMHO that even the standard steel wheels with trim rings looked kinda nice (note that I'm talking about the GT, not the base Beretta).
