I was not yet around during the 80's, but this is one of my favourite cars from the era : the Peugeot 309 GTi, introduced in 1986 (a 16-valve GTi 16 was launched in 1990). It's like a 205 GTi with a boot, so it's more practical, and it's much rarer and less of an obvious choice, so it's cooler. I want one, badly, even if the build quality's rumoured to be atrocious.
