What is the state of the American parking lot? Go out to one near you and you’ll probably find cars just like these, and at least one of them will have terrifyingly bald tires.

That’s at least how things turned out for Regular Car Reviews, who took in everything in a fairly large hotel parking lot by him.

There are the aspirational cars, the budget sporty cars, the wannabes, and the ones just getting by.

But it’s the 1990s Chevy Malibu on its cords that is the reminder that there are so, so many of these things roaming around the country, just getting by, because this country requires car ownership that many can’t quite afford.
