I saw one of these several years ago with the vanity plate "ROLRSK8". One of the most apt plates I've ever seen!

About

1986 Chevrolet Sprint 3-Door Hatchback
Gold Metallic - Tan interior

1.0 Liter Inline-3
5 Speed Manual Transmission

I bought the Sprint in 2002 with 45k miles, 45-50 mpg. Used it as a daily driver until I hit a deer. It still ran but the front end sheet-metal/hood was badly damaged..was sorry to see it go.

The '85-'88 Sprint was the Suzuki Cultus marketed in the US by Chevrolet to replace the Chevette ($5,000 price point)
According to Popular Mechanics, the Sprint is the Best Non-Hybrid of the "Best Fuel Sippers of the Past 34 Years"
