The Toyota Corolla entered this world 50 years ago this year. Was the 1980s all-wheel-drive wagon the best one? Probably not, but I love it.

Yes, it was the best one, but they are all gone now, dissolved on the salty snowy backroads where they were at their best.

Mine provided me with more smiles than my miata.

Say what you want about toyota appliances, that was a rally toaster space wagon I loved, in magenta.

Thank you for letting me remember.
