These are the top 10 cars, in my opinion. In no particular order.
1) Saab 900
Manual, available in Turbo, hatchback, fun to drive. Affordable.
2) Volvo 240 Wagon
aka, the Godfather.
3) Volkswagen Golf MKII
squeeeee; the best hot hatch ever.
4) Peugeot 205
The french Golf MKII variant, collect the whole set!
5) BMW E30
6) Volkswagen Thing
Who doesn't want one? Everyone wants one.
7) Jeep Grand Wagoneer
The only correct way to transport a large family. And that glorious wood paneling!
8) Pontiac Phoenix
First sold as a trim variant of the Pontiac Ventura, the Phoenix was available with rear-wheel drive and an optional 5.0-liter V8. Yesss, yesss, and that body styling is perfect.
9) Volkswagen Bus
Name a finer vehicle to cruise america in, nay, the world. You can't.
10) Citroen 2CV
A proper french car with unique and timeless styling.
