Now that gasoline is around $10.00 per gallon (not really), people are dragging all sorts of old small cars out of their grandmother’s back yard. At least here in Alabama, the land that vehicle inspections forgot. The old clunkers that would immediately be crushed in other states happily roam the highways here. This early 1980’s Toyota Camry is one of them.

My how far we’ve come in 25 years. Despite probably adding 1000 pounds, a 2008 four cylinder Camry probably gets the same or better gas mileage than this old one with half the horsepower. But a new Camry can’t match the beautiful Bronze & Gold paint scheme of the 80’s version.
