1971 International Harvester Scout II (picture from here. $15.5K? Not bad!)
Now, I was looking for something special to post for this one, because '71 happens to be the year your humble host was born. There weren't a lot of good cars introduced in 1971. Fortunately, the Scout II is pretty damned awesome, even if it was playing catchup with the Jeep for "proto-SUV."
It beat the Ford Bronco (1966) and Chevy Blazer (1969) to market, as well as all of the Japanese imports of the 1980s. The Chevrolet Suburban, of course, is the granddaddy of them all, being introduced in 1934; however even the mighty 'Burban didn't get 4WD until 1960, about the same time as the Scout coming to market.
The Scout - along with the Bronco, Blazer, and Toyota ForeRunner (all in their first generation body style, interestingly enough) - had a removable top for summer time fun. An obvious tip of the design pen to the Jeep, it was one of those ideas that sounded great right up until someone got around to doing it. The problem with a removable roof is two-fold: getting it off, and finding a place to store it where it won't get damaged (yes, Dad G. had a Wrangler that I helped put the roof on/take the roof off for several years).
Still, it'd be a lot of fun to have one of the Scouts today!
That is all.
