This thing is leaking coolness all over the place. I have such a soft spot for these 80s compacts.

Oh that is just chock full of 80's awesome.  I'm not ashamed to admit I loved those things when they were new.  I even liked the design of the Plymouth Sundance/Dodge Shadow.  IIRC, there was a CSX version of the Dodge too.

Yup, the Shelby CSX started in 87, same as the Shelby Lancer.  In 88 Shelby partnered with Thrify car rental (similar to Hertz with the Mustangs) and produced the Shelby CSX-T.

This is what my dad drove everyday when I was a kid,, he had a GLH and a turismo as well. He spent a lot having head gaskets replaced if I remember correctly
