1990's Mercury Villager variations

Found a few Mercury Villagers an their interesting variations.
The first one is a 1998 "Multi-sport" and I have no idea what it means.  The text is very '90s.

I can't quite tell whats special about it.

 I've heard of Sport models before, but "multi-sport" is a new one.

The second one I found is a 1996.  Its the "Nautica" model. Which I believe is just an appearance package.

It has special paint scheme, as well as a different interior with nautical theme.

 And some other appearance options.

 I'll be on the lookout of other variations next time.

2002 Toyota Prius

In the same salvage yard that the 2011 Prius was in, was this!  A first generation 2002 Toyota Prius (2001-2003 in the US)

This car was actually in very good condition.

Most surprisingly was that the drive-train was still intact!  Perhaps it had just arrived, I'm not sure.

 1.5L gasoline hybrid engine

2011 Toyota Prius

This is probably the newest car I've seen in a salvage yard so far.  A 2011 Toyota Prius (that makes this a 3rd generation, 09-15)

Needless to say, it was stripped pretty well. 

The drive-train was obviously gone.

2005 Phoenix Suns PT Cruiser

Found something new finally.  A Phoenix Sun's wrapped PT Cruiser.  This particular one is 2005, and the original color, appropriately, was plum (the interior panels were plum, and the front fender is not wrapped).

 I have no idea what this car was used for, promotions, likely.

 The wrap is in pretty bad shape!  It was even worse on the other side.
Kind of strange that both PT Cruisers I've found have had unusual color schemes. Here's the other

1972 Toyota Corona

This is the Toyota Corona (T90 series, which went from 1970-1974).  This is not to be confused with the Toyota Corona MKII, which was larger and focused less on fuel economy.

 There were a number of sizes of 4 cylinder engines, I'm not entirely sure which this one was.

 This particular one came with an automatic.  The interior is quite nice; used to be, anyway.

 This one has been picked through quite a bit.  But you don't see this around too much anymore.
