1990: The Great Pinto Extinction Proceeds

Back when I was more serious about photography (i.e., when I thought it was cool to huff Dektol fumes in a darkened closet), I would reload disposable 35mm cameras with Tri-X 400 black-and-white film and shoot images like this.

Nowadays, of course, I'd be shooting that Pinto (or maybe it's a Bobcat) wagon from every possible angle. 20 years ago, however, I was content to use that doomed FoMoCo wagon as a backdrop for a blurry rainstorm shot. Fast-forward to this year and you'll see an '84 Monte Carlo in that parking space.
