Driving around today, I noticed a car that should be long gone…
The late 80’s, early 90’s Buick Century. That car always looks the same to me. A dingy, dirty, faded paint job (car hasn’t actually been washed in years) in either faded red, green, or silver. Always an older person behind the wheel too, which isn’t surprising.
What IS surprising is that so many of these cars are still on the road.
2 other cars I’ve noticed are the BMW e46 sedan (3-series, from 1998-2005?) not sure on dates… But these things are everywhere.
And their was a mid 80’s Jeep Cherokee that I see all the time. The thing is just boxy, so it sticks out. Might be newer than that, but my friend had one and I thought he bought it when he got his first real job and that was in the 80’s. Brand new, and he was still driving that thing this summer. He had no plans to stop, either, but someone totaled it for him, so he had no choice. That car scared me when I rode in it, but he seemed to just love it.
Manufacturer seems to hit a sweet spot with a car every now and then, and these 3 fit the bill.
Anyone have any favorite cars that won’t seem to die (must be 10 years or older)
