For me, it’s the 7th generation 1993-1994 Dodge Colt, a rebadged Mitsubishi Mirage. Offered with a 1.5L 4G15 SOHC 8v or a 1.8L 4G93 also SOCH 16v paired to a 5 speed row your own or a 3 or 4 speed slusher sending 93 or 118 horses to the front wheels, this chariot could be had in 4 or 2 doors, but curiously it seems only the 4 door could handle the mighty power of the 4G93. The above example is listed locally to me with a manual at the lofty goal of $1200. Yeah, right.
Where do your shitbox dreams point, Oppo? And don't say Geo Metro, those are cool now.
