White ’90 Hatchback

Hatchback alert!  And oh, how your editors wish it were better than this.  Despite the horrible photography, it’s pretty easy to surmise that this ride is destined for the scrapheap very soon indeed.  Without even seeing what sins that blue spray paint may hide, the Craigslist location in Ohio will certainly give a hint.  There’s rust visible even in the dark photos and I would assume, in many, many other places as well.  It’s rare, yes, but also quite done.

Modern cars coddle the human form with supportive seats, 3,500 (or more, much more) pounds of metal and plastic, airbags galore and decades of research and development with regard to safely slowing the body in case of a catastrophic change in speed.  Perhaps we as drivers have gotten used to that concept, and have assumed that all vehicles are going to be that way – seeing the way some of you drive, well, yeah.

Prizm GSi Registry

We hope to compile a decent listing of the remaining GSi – dead or alive.  If you own a GSi, or have seen one for sale online or in person, fill out the form below!  We will register it here for posterity.  With only about 7,000 ever built, the overall disposable nature of early 90s subcompact cars, and the intervening years, there probably aren’t too many left.
