Since no one seems to want to follow my advice and erase all memory of the 1980s, every so often, I stumble upon something like this – a video showing the highlights of the 1987 Chicago Auto Show. And it's terrible. Yet oddly priceless.

This video shows off the very worst of the compact cars of the 1980s – I retched when the Pontiac Le Mans showed up. But there's a silver lining here: This video will really, really make you appreciate just how far the compact and subcompact car market has come in less than 30 years. Have a look.
