  • If the Festiva and the Mk I Golf had a Baby?

    I'd never seen this car before and then saw it in an old commercial on streetfire. I like it.

    Hmmm... not sure if I like it or not yet. I don't like the mirrors, that I know for sure. However, you definitely nailed it on the two cars it looks like it came from Maybe with a early '90s Mercedes nose job as an afterthought as well.
    No festiva for me ATM...

          Id have to see some more angles before I like that one. That one is a little posed. It may have way too much glass on it. I do see how the whole thing is very similar.

                Sadly, it's one of those cars the rest of the world got, but we didn't.

                  We got 'em. Just not the same style. That's a Chevette.

                      Lol, my Buddys got a chevette in decent shape (needs basic stuff, ball joints & bushings) sitting in his garage..for the last 6 years or so. The body and interior are immaculate, I've been trying to talk him into spending a couple hundred on restoring it...maybe one of these days we'll get er back on the road. It was his moms car, so eventually I know he'll come around.

                        Not according to this;

                        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opel_Corsa

                        It actually replaced the Chevette, from what I gathered scanning the page.

                          The Opel is obviously newer, but that's like saying the Rio5 isn't a Festiva.

                            The Opel is front wheel drive.

                            The Chevette, eh, not so much.
