With the passing of Ford Mustang creator and former Chrysler CEO Lee Iacocca what better way to remember him and his car contributions than to go back and remember some cars. If you've graduated in the last 40 years, first CONGRATS! Secondly, it's fun to go back and look at what was popular at the first big milestone of your life. Car & Driver went back to 1978 to 2018 and put together what car sold the most models that year. I'll just say lately, it's been one maker and model that's dominated the last decade-plus.

It's been a run of Toyota for the past decade plus, but if you go back and Google some of the cars from the 1980s that won the award you have to smile to yourself and say and I thought I was cool driving that Ford Escort ZX2 hatchback around...
