1988 Eagle Premier, 1988 Eagle Lineup

1988 Eagle Premier

Well into the early 2000s, Lexus vehicles still came standard with cassette players. I mention this because it’s an example of a classic paradigm clash. Almost 30 years after the first CDs were making their way into the hands of audiophiles, Lexus was still catering to conservative car shoppers who were in no hurry to replace their Robert Ludlum cassette audio books.

1976 Ford Falcon

1982 Imperial

If you’re looking for proof that 1982 was a transitional year for the domestic auto industry, check out the dealer sales-training video for the then-new Chevrolet Cavalier below.

1965 Ford Police Car

1965 Ford Ranch Wagon

Last year Ford sold around 20,000 vehicles to law-enforcement agencies. While the number may seem huge, it’s dwarfed by many of Ford’s retail models. The Ford Escape small crossover, for example, accounts for nearly 30,000 sales every month.

1986 Saab 9000

1977 Chrysler LeBaron Coupe

1977 Chrysler LeBaron Coupe

If you’re a car guy, you’ve likely been aware of the LeBaron moniker for a while, but perhaps didn’t have an entirely firm grip on why. Any confusion you might feel regarding the LeBaron name stems from the moniker having been used in three distinct epochs in Chrysler’s history.
