Junkbox 10 of 12: 1994 Dodge Colt

I continue to re-read the vintage Car and Driver article from July 1992 came across my desk the other day — it is this comparison article on 12 compact economy cars that pitted twelve sub $10k crapboxes against each other with an assortment of college kids deciding which car was the best and the worst. The next car on the list was a 1992 Eagle Summit, but I couldn’t find a Summit. Anywhere. Nor could I find a Mitsubishi Mirage on which it is based, but I did find its corporate cousin a next gen Dodge Colt in 2-door stripper model. Find this 1994 Dodge Colt offered for $4995 in Plainfield, IN via craigslist and cars.com.
