significant because, while it's not a chevy spectrum it is an i-mark.

and oldparkedcars will take all the i-marks it can get.

I had no idea these existed. Other than that, I don't have much to say.

All I have to say about this is, quite aggressively angled indicators. Other than that, one Geo badged 2nd gen i-mark is more than enough for this site. I've considered photographing one of these, but couldn't bring myself to do it. So good job.

I argue (in the academic sense) that this car perfectly expresses one of the main thing this blog is about; cars that were completely unremarkable, perhaps even boring, that have survived into the 21st century. No one would ever give this car a second glance. And when they disappear, quietly and gradually, from the face of the earth, no one will even notice.

that comment sounds like something from the elusive "markus"...

This was replaced by the Prizm.

*The Prizm also replaced the Nova as the Toyota-related Chevy/GM car.

A friend of mine had one of these in college. She called it the Speculum, and said driving it was only marginally more enjoyable than a visit to the gyno.

I'd say this blog is also about appreciating the unappreciated. A lot of people would ignore most of tbe cars on this blog, yet they are all interesting to us. Similarly, many want that "rusty piece of junk" off the streets, instead of appreciating the cars and trends of a bygone era, and appreciating how hard the car most have worked--and still does.

Whoops, should be "the" instead of "tbe" and "must" instead of "most"

nice, seattle0.

i was actually giving my truck a little pep talk on the way home tonight and got a little choked up thinking of what a hard little worker it's been for all these decades.

Speaking of hard work, I haven't had a car in two years. I've been riding my bike for transportation. It's amazing how unnecessary they are most of the time. I still like looking at old cars but maybe not this one.

seattleO hit the nail right on the head. I love this blog because it shows me a part of america that still drives old mixed in with the new. I love and appreciate that all these cars are still working and racking up the miles as they should and not just being disregarded because they are past their prime. and each car will be remembered by the people who know and love them.

IS there a car in the photos? That's some anonymous "styling" there.

Hilarious which two cars have dramatically higher comments than the rest on the main page! The original inspiration for OPC shines through!

Ben: I think that's the idea of this site. ;)

To notice old cars no-one else would notice in any way, even Geos.

Geo badged version is rarer than the I-mark, that's for sure. Awesome find.
