    As a broke college kid I owned an '86 Sprint Metro. I wouldn't ever call it fun, though.

    0-60? Are we doing down hill? :D

    Heck, that was my wife's first new car! Her car was blue with the powerful 1.0 3-cylinder engine. :P

    ...now post pictures? I don't see the tool at the bottom of the text box to post pictures.

    When people called it slow I'd say "then get out and push".

    I will say, that thing got 46mpg at a time when gas prices spiked.

    I don't know what the holdup is. Hopefully if we get some new forum software up and running the pain points will ease. So go fill out the survey. :)

    That's a Renault R10. I remember them because my brother T-boned a Buick Riv in one.

    "Late 70's VW Dasher"

    My sister carpooled with a guy who had one of these with a diesel. There was an uncontrolled intersection where he had to cross a four lane boulevard. He had to turn off the A/C to make it 'safely'.

    G'day

    Where I come from, we called it a Passat. Quite a remarkable surprise for VW at that time.

    Cheers

    That's what one would think it is, but it's not a Nubira. Think Russian!
  • ateixeiraateixeira Posts: 72,587
    Those lazy bums didn't even change the grille!?

    OK, GM tie-in, so I'll guess Chevy Nubira?

    It's a Doninvest Orion.

    With that grille and headlight assembly, 1986-88.

    To be replaced by the Passat for 90, an even more troublesome car that is virtually extinct on NA roads now.

    That's it.
