'86 Pontiac 6000 - not because the car was bad per se, but because I didn't maintain it.

Near the end:
- The brake cylinder lost pressure so you had to pump the brakes once before they'd catch (except 1 in 100 times when they caught the first time and sent you to a screeching halt)
- The engine would not idle, but would sputter and die when coming to a stop
- Power steering would occasionally step out for a break

When coming to a stop-light, I would have to pump the brake with the left foot, put the tranny in neutral while gently pumping the gas to avoid a stall.
