Back to 1985.

Johor Sultan drove Mahathir to the airport in his first-gen Proton Saga: Here are 5 things to know about the classic Malaysian car
What a ride it has been.
Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad was driven to the airport by the Sultan of Johor in his blue, 34-year-old Proton Saga on Friday (Jan 11).
The premier was offered the ride in Sultan Ibrahim Ibni Almarhum Sultan Iskandar’s first generation Proton Saga after their meeting at the Istana Bukit Serene on Thursday, The Star reported.
Mahathir -who in 1979 mooted the National Car project that led to the founding of Proton- was quoted by Bernama as saying: “I think it is a good endorsement of a Proton car. 34 years and still functioning.”
Their retro ride was a gift from Mahathir to Sultan Ibrahim’s late father – Sultan Iskandar – in 1985, and the first of its kind with a registration plate that simply says “Proton 1”, Bernama reported.
The Prime Minister was quoted as saying: “Very good. This 34-year old car that was given by me to his father in Kuala Lumpur… a manual (transmission)… the clock still works properly… no breakdown.”
“It has done 22,000km. At that time, the price tag was only 17,000 (ringgit). That’s why I was able to afford to give a free gift (sic) to the Agong,” he added.
A Malaysian classic, the Proton Saga is the first in a series of cars produced by Malaysian automobile manufacturer Proton. Here are five interesting things about the sedan.
