1989 Chevrolet Caprice 305 V8 from North America
Not as good as everybody says this model is
Automatic overdrive transmission: completely rebuilt.
Great car... except for the fuel injection being controlled by an on-board computer.. will not let the engine speed return to idle speed quick enough; this makes car difficult to control.
In reality, the 'driver' is operating a computer with tires on it... and thus it's not near as pleasant to drive as it could be.
The gas mileage is very good.
The factory radio is lousy.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Only 12,000 miles in 13 years of ownership suggests this is a toy, not a car for daily transportation, so why would you not have gotten a 1960s era computer-free car instead?

If it's not returning to idle speed like normal, then something is wrong with it. Possibly a vacuum leak. A car this old can have just about anything wrong with it - even with low mileage.
