Considering that a 1983 Chevrolet Citation can be now legally registered as an antique vehicle in most states (!), it's now time we honor the survivors of the dullest decade in American motoring...now this may take some doing since most models didn't change very radically from one year to the next...

I'll start the ball rolling with:

1985 Chevrolet El Camino; medium blue metallic; not bad for a Camino! Seen in Collinsville, IL
