Sweet.  I had an '86.5.  It did indeed feel big and unwieldy, but I sure did love it just the same.

Currently I'm ponying around town in a 2000 Mustang GT.  Some day I'll clean it up a bit and take a picture or two.
*sigh*  Someday...

I has no car.  I has King County Metro.  But they never let me drive 'em, no matter how nicely I ask.  ^^    (Eh, just as well, who wants to drive a giant-ass bus.  Even with those special zones they get, they must be hell to park.  Plus you have to stop and pick up all those weirdos who expect you to give them rides all over the city.  I hear the pay and benefits are really good, though.)

Used to drive a 5-speed 1995 Toyota Camry, which belongs to my parents.  Basic sedan, nothin' special, but it was nice when it was new.  It is a testament to the endurance of Toyota vehicles that that sucker put up with a family roadtrip, two teenagers learning how to drive on it (and one or two crashes), plus months and years of a 40-mile daily commute in rush hour traffic ... it's gone through several sets of brake pads, three new clutches and the latest one is weak now, though.  Blame my brother, he's tough on cars.  Up until it was left in a garage for a year, it still started reliably and ran jut fine.  It is remarkably patient with people who abuse it.

Over 12+ years and 180k miles, it's degraded from shiny new to more or less a "beater," but I love it still.  It sits all alone now, waiting until somebody goes to the trouble of selling it.  (My parents eventually bought a new car without disposing of the Camry first.)  If I had the money and the need for a vehicle, I'd buy it off my parents and fix up the worn-out bits and treasure it forever.
