I was very impressed with the performance of this car. The 6 cylinder was great in acceleration, but at the same time, gave reasonable mileage and excellent reliability. Even with over 500000 kms on it, it would start like the day it was new. I have yet to find another car I enjoyed as much as this one. Best car I ever owned!
My father bought it new from the dealer in 1985, and I inherited it after that. That thing was damn near bullet proof!!! The only drawback was the rust. These cars in 1985 had a real problem with the paint peeling off and causing the steel to rust.
As for reliability, they were A1 and easy to fix! Even when my father bought a new Oldsmobile in 1995, this beauty started better than his brand new Olds when it was -25 plus windchill outdoors!...
I sure miss her, and if I could, would buy another in a second!
