Ever watch reruns of The Price is Right from the ‘70s and ‘80s and wonder what happened to all those cars?

We may never learn the fate of most of those vehicles, but we can look back at all the prize cars given away–both good and bad–thanks to Instagram account @tpircars.

Each post documents the episode in which the car appeared, as well as a transcription of Johnny Olson’s voice-over (and yes, we heard his signature voice in our heads, too, while reading each prize description).

What’s your favorite car ever given away as a prize on The Price is Right?

I thought they had an "American cars only" policy, or did that come later?

That was when Renault owned AMC, so... gray area?
