I always considered the '78 Corolla liftback - not the hatchback or wagon - to be one of the prettiest cars out there. Like a Volvo PS1800, but a little taller and ultimately a lot rustier.

I used to ride to rowing practice with a friend in his mom's Chevy Nova *cough* Corolla, five us in that car was full. Putting nine into one sounds like flicking boogers at Death.
