1985-2004 - Sunbird
More aliases than a jail-Bird...
I owned one, 4 door sedan, stick with no air conditioning, Put 197,000+ miles on it, only had to put in 2 clutches and 2 air pumps. Never had to touch the engine, and it did not burn a drop of oil. That 1.8l Iron duke was bullet proof. That was a good little car and served me will till the day I traded it on a 90 Sillhouette.

I remember like the nose somewhat resembling that of the Firebird. Hard to believe that Pontiac is no more, I loved them as a kid in the 60s.
Had a 1984 Sunbird with the 1.8 L OHC sourced out of Brazil. Other J cars like the Cavalier had a push rod 4 cylinder but I went with the OHC. Pretty decent engine but buzzy; but worked well with the getrag sourced 5 speed. Poor cooling system design led to overheating which led to some head gasket issues. Fun car especially with the 5 speed.
The wheels are so square!
"Camira" is an interesting word. In Australian accent it sounds pretty nice for a car name. In basically any other accent it sounds like a heap of dog poo (imagine in southern US drawl or from a Bavarian)
1982 models were underpowered and slow, esp with the "slurring" auto tranny.
yeah.. I remember those.. Those were kind of strange. lol

Didn't the Sunbird end in 1994, replaced by the 'Fire in 95?
