    Another recent thread in JoMomma inspired this. Just post a picture, if you would, so we can reminisce. Extra points for cars that were once pretty popular but so bland nobody saved them. To start: [​IMG]

    I had this exact car & color. I added a factory spoiler and thought it was cool. Stick shift and a 4 cyl. I still got pulled over for speeding! Love the car but typical 70’s Chrysler quality. Traded it in on this:

    My TC-3 was orange with an orange plaid interior. 1.7l with a stick. I paid $300 for it:lol3

    Had a 72 Maverick with the 170/auto. I had to pull the plugs every 100 or so miles to scrape the burnt oil goo off the electrodes so it would still run.

    SAAB Sonnet---should be a 4 speed or 3 on the column rather than a 5 speed shifter.

    LTD II. So close in size and market to the LTD but I believe they made 4 versions of it. 2 door, 4 door, wagon, and Ranchero?
