Here are the three:
1983 Toyota Tercel, seen here in the yard of our house in Vermont.
1997BMW 318ti. On a ferry crossing Lake Champlain.
2011 Subaru Impreza at Alewife Station parking garage.
There is a kind of progression here: The first was front wheel drive, the second was rear wheel drive and the latest is all wheel drive. The Tercel had a displacement of 1.5 liters, the BMW 2.0 liters and the Subaru has 2.5 liters. Lots of continuity too: All are blue, four cylinder hatchbacks with manual transmissions.
