1973 was the first year for the Dart Sport, essentially a fastback version of a Dart two-door and closely related to the Plymouth Duster. It was previously called the Demon (from 1971-1972), but frequent complaints from religious groups about the name led Dodge to rename it. This car likely has the 150 HP, 318 cubic inch V8; optional was a 240 HP, 340 cubic inch V8 on “340 Sport” models.

Britain’s answer to the Volkswagen Beetle, the Mini was the most popular British car ever, with upwards of 5.3 million sold between 1959 and 2000. I’m only guessing at the year of this one, though I think it’s a Mk V (1984-1989), and since this car wears a British Leyland badge (defunct in 1986), I pegged it at an ’85. They really didn’t change much, honestly.

Powered by a 220 cubic inch inline six and a three-speed manual, the R110 was a popular truck in its heyday, back when International Harvester was still a major player in the light truck industry. Their market share began to dwindle through the 1960s, and by 1975 they had discontinued all trucks. The venerable Scout soldiered on until the 1980 model year, when International Harvester’s passenger car division was shuttered and the company moved on to heavy-duty trucks and school buses.

1972 was the last year for the classic second-generation Cutlass, and the last year of the Cutlass convertible until it was revived in 1990. Despite this, it was the best-selling convertible in America, with 11,571 sold out of 298,881 Cutlass Supremes total that year.
