What I saw in the student parking lot in 1990:

1 V8
2 turbo q's (new 'uns)
1 500SL

Right now (ur... 1996?) I've seen brand new supra turbo, rx-7, mitsu 3000 
vr-4, land rover -- in fact, cars in students parking lot are a lot more 
fancier than the faculty counterpart. Not only there are students who would 
wiling to go into deeper debt, but more surprisingly -- some are able to 
buy cars with cash (no loans!). Holy moly!
