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

1990 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser station wagon; blue with wood-grain siding; in Collinsville, IL. The driver bought the car from a woman who'd had it stored for years and is gettin' special Route 66 license plates for it (it's one of the nicest lookin' wagons of that make and model I've seen in years!)
