I ♥ the 80s: 1982 Ford EXP

My heart is racing. Palms sweaty. Somebody get me a drink, fast. Yes, it is none other than the elusive Ford EXP, perhaps the stupidest car ever offered for sale in these United States. A rebodied Escort, itself a irredeemably awful car, the EXP was so devoid of even marginally desirable qualities that beleaguered ad execs were reduced to building a campaign around the factoid that it happened to be Ford's first two-seater since the original Thunderbird! Whoo! Because who doesn't look at those tired-froggy eyebrows and think '55 T-Bird?

This is a shockingly well-preserved example. I don't know how I'm going to sleep tonight.
