Auto sales are apparently at their lowest point since 1982. Sad news for the automakers…but it got me thinking. What were we driving back in 1982? So let’s take a cruise back in time:
One of my favorite all time cars, for reasons even I don’t understand: The 1982 Cadillac Seville. Nevermind it’s bustle butt, I thought it was pure class.
Since I am a big Honda fan, here is what I would probably have been driving around in this 1982 Honda Prelude:
I think my mom had one of these, a 1982 Chevy Chevette (hmmm…I’m beginning to see why 1982 was a bad year for car sales):
In 1982, these were probably slowing down traffic. And I imagine you can still find one that’s only been driven to church and back, a 1982 Oldsmobile:
Or maybe you were on the cutting edge, and bought the new Renault (introduced as a 1983 model). I’m nearly positive my stepmother had one identical to this:
Or how about that perennial best seller, the Ford F-150?
So, what was everyone else riding around in back in 1982?
