In 1971 my wife and I purchased our first new car. It was a 1971 Toyota Corella SR2 sport coupe and might be the best car I have owned. It cost $2,471 out the door. The same dealer sold Jaguar and they had two XKE hard tops on the floor. I still consider the XKE the most attractive car ever built. The XKE was selling for $5,200. We could not afford it and clearly was not suitable for a young family with two children. 

Then again perhaps this one is more beautiful. Maybe.
