Junkyard Jumble

The early version was simply known as Clunkers for Clunkers…

Published by the Consumer Guide in 1985, this Junkyard Jumble shows a stack of classic iron – it is your job to figure out which cars we are looking at. I have the answers and I will reveal them later today.
The scan is not the easiest to work from but I would be shocked if you all don’t team up to get the majority of these answers correct. There are 18 answers by the way. Good luck!
Thanks to P161911 for the scan.

    I see an automotive rock wall of shattered souls and dreams, treated with less regard than that of a burger wrapper.
    A cornucopia of Brown Cancer spots and Sloth.

    I can't help but think this would've been done in 12 seconds by the Hemmings commenters.
    Hell, one of them probably wrote it.

    All that classic, irreplaceable iron just thrown away like this morning's coffee grinds.
    This just makes Sad Panda suicidal. 🙁
