Now a reply from the other side of the world (the poor side):

1978 Volkswagen Beetle (we call it "Fusca")
1980 Chevrolet Chevette (a.k.a. 2nd. generation Opel Kadett)
1986 Chevrolet Chevette
1991 Ford Escort (european model)
1996 Ford Escort Sedan (a.k.a. Orion)
2001 Ford Focus Sedan

The Escorts had Volkswagen engines and transmissions (1.8 liter notchback and 2.0 liter sedan) because of the ill-fated Latin American joint-venture between Ford and VW that existed at the time.
