      The west-coasters have the best chance of having the oldest. Cali started to get them in the spring of '87, as early '88 models.

        What a shame. In southern Ontario, Canada, pre-1988 vehicles are exempt from bi-annual emissions testing. I'd do anything to get the official papers and sheetmetal for an 87-titled Festiva.

          I had an 87 build date. Don't recall the month. I'll try to look it up.
          I also have the newest. Beat freshtiva by one day iirc. That means Our stivas were on the boat together!
          There is an old thread like this.

            Found a thread where I picked up my 16th. My build date was 9/87. You win!

                Kind of off topic, but what if all the gearheads in the country could just move to 1 state or providence. In no time we would own the government of said state, no emissions, no outlawed parts, good old safe n' prudent speed limits with gearhead cops who just wanted to pull you over to talk shop. There would be a lot of accidents of coarse, but that comes with the territory and auto insurance would be an option. I guess it would be like the good old days that granpa used to talk about.

                      Or Montana

                      You can permanently register vehicles 11 years old or older and never register again.
                      Only around $100, too.
                      There are no vehicle inspections- safety equipment or emissions.

                              Sounds like a plan, but you gotta act soon, we are losing our freedom more and more every day. Arizona does have some great roads and tracks and great weather most of the year.
