Found in the Wild: Everybody Wants You

This is the car that non-car people love. It's a 1970 Ford Mustang fastback. And you have to admit, they're really on to something. I mean, how can you dislike a car with faux cooling scoops adjacent to the headlights and door jamb as well as a spoiler molded into the body shape. And that's before we've even gotten to the engines.

Found in the Wild: Le Rust

I absolutely love how stupid the name "Le Car" is. I mean it's really handy if you thought you were staring at a Le Blender and needed clarification. Never mind that French for car is "voiture," this 1980 Renault Le Car is a hilarious caricature of French motoring in the malaise era.
