My first memory as a child was of my folks' car. It was silver and had really odd looking vertical tail lamps. For years, I was bothered by the fact that I did not know the make and model of the car. So I finally googled "vertical tail lamps" and voila, it was the Toyota Carina.
Aside from the Lancia Thesis, there are no other passenger cars with such long, skinny tail lamps.
Enjoy these photos I found on Flickr. Apparently, they were a big hit in Holland.
