I am owner number 5 of my 95 L wagon. Owners 1 and 2 beat her senseless, while 3, 4, and 5 have taken care of her religiously. This resulted in a wagon with 214k that is cosmetically destroyed. Bits of rust popping up and dings everywhere. The drivetrain, however, is practically perfect. Needs some work, but doesn't show her age yet.
My car is the millennium falcon. She's not pretty, but she's got it where it counts.
