    Renault’s conquistador of the city, the Twingo, was both adorable and also just ridiculous looking simple car. It’s a sight at which you do an almost snorty giggle.

    Disclaimer: There’s so much adventure happening in this faded 1980s Honda press photo. So, so much.

    If you’ve been following along with our recent rampant of Hooniverse Classic Captions Contests, a fair amount of the retro press images I’ve selected depict said featured car amidst some type of active sport or form of mighty fine outdoor recreation.
