Those cars are SHARP. I was happy I was able to easily find the photo of it just now, because it came through a work event last year and it was my favorite car of the day. Owner was super cool, guy in his early 60s I'd guess. Those wheels alone make the car worth having...

Edit: "1885 Buick Riviera"
That's awesome! Was it a horse carriage or steamboat or something? Just kidding, haha.
WOW .. that is exactly the car I had. Same color, same wheels.

High School years:
1966 Ford LTD - bought from high school auto shop, full size car, non-power drum brakes front and rear, no heat, friends used to "borrow" with just paperclip under the hood somewhere...
1972 Vega - 2 speed PowerGlide transmission, burned a quart of oil per week, rusted all over, in dry Southern California (where I grew up), probably just because I washed it occasionally...
1973 Vega GT - parts car for the other Vega, never did transfer the part, cylinder head kept going off-center on the block, mixing coolant and oil ...don't ask...

College years:
1975 Chevy Nova LN (luxury nova?) - red interior with beige instrument panel, stripped out the beige parts, painted everything flat black, ended up looking like a Nova SS inside, more or less, fun car for its time, did not give me too much trouble, just gulped gas a bit
1985 Mustang LX 4 cyl 4 speed - bought new, fell apart, incorrect grounding for the stereo caused several other electrical issues in the car.
1974 Chevrolet Bel-Air - 400 cubic inch V8, inherited from my grandmother when she passed away, bench seats could comfortably fit 4 across front and rear, gulped gas far worse than the Nova, above.
1982 Dodge 024 - 1.7 L VW engine, 4 speed stick, zero options (no a/c, no radio (originally)), nearly bicycle sized tires as OEM, bought Shelby rims from a junk yard, still only went 0-60 in "1.5 minutes"...
1983 Renault Fuego - 1.6 L turbo, 5 speed stick, canvas sunroof that 1 out of 3 times would only close on the passenger side, had to coax the driver side to close as well, reason for buying: very long story, don't care to share. dashboard nearly caught on fire, attorney returned to commercial seller for replacement of next car, actually made on this planet...
1985 Plymouth Horizon - 2.2 L, 5 speed stick, brake pedal would go to the floor in the most inopportune times, such as when I needed to stop, timing belt conveniently broke while driving on a freeway, after the belt breakage, the engine valves would stick occasionally cutting power drastically

Post College:
1987 Nissan Sentra Sport Coupe - 1.6 L, first normal, dependable car since the Chevy Nova, drove it cross country, "sold" (the cost to register in her name, and a routine brake job that was due) to my sister, who drove it for another 100K miles
1995 Acura Integra LS 2 dr - 1.8L 5-speed stick, plastic wheel covers, added the factory accessory alloy wheels, installed the tweeter upgrade kit and an Alpine 6 disc CD changer, loved that car, as slow as it was, handled great, no problems

Post Marriage:
1997 Honda Accord LX 4 cyl Auto for wife, no problems, traded in for 2002, below
2001 Honda Accord EX "with leather" V6 (today called "EX-L") for myself, no problems, traded in for CRV below
2002 Honda Accord EX 4 cyl for Wife, no problems, sold to family member in lieu of trading in
2010 Honda CRV EX-L, no problems for myself, but hated the ride, hard as a rock, traded in for the Lexus RX below
2010 Acura TSX 2.4 Auto with Tech Pkg, great car, nice stereo until young family member tested how loud the stereo could go, speaker damage was under warranty surprisingly..., traded in for 2020 Honda below
2011 Lexus RX 350 for myself, but started to realize the ride was not that much better than the CRV, Wife and I traded car keys, she loves the Lexus...
2020 Honda Accord EX-L 1.5T (current, as of this post) for myself, trading in the Acura TSX, no problems, love the car. Bought Jan 2 2020. However, if I knew Covid would take over the world, I would have waited a year...

The list of coupes in chrono order:

97 Civic DX Coupe: Manual everything, no power steering, no power windows, light as a feather, cornered like a go-kart on rails.

93 Sentra Coupe: It was black, and had a CD player. Clutch pedal either did not have power assist, or lost it along the way under a previous ownership. Shifting was a workout.

89 E30 Coupe: People are not crazy about these cars without reason. Fun to drive, total cop magnet.

Had a bunch of 4-5 door cars other than these out of necessity over the years, but none that I care to mention.

How about that Plymouth Horizon .. My sister had one and I feel like it may have been the worst car ever made. Trumped maybe only by my Mom's AMC Hornet.

2011 Hyundai Sonata SE. Very reliable car. Just as reliable as my current 2013 Accord or dare I even say more reliable?
