Interesting.  So what cars are *n*x-boxes from?  And Amigas?  And our
beloved Newts?  :-D

FWIW I connect Newtons with my old, stubbornly reliable 1967(?) VW 1600
Variant squareback -- in all the glory of its perfectly designed,
impressively compact, 240,000+ miles of stubbornly reliable service.
(This one isn't mine -- that died long ago -- but it looked like this:
 except in dark blue.)

But someone here might know a more appropriate car.
