1984 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme 307 V8 from North America
I've never had a better car in my life
Nothing has gone wrong with the car. That is the reason I am so satisfied with it.
The car has top end,but won't burn the tires easily.
You have to use high octane in order to keep the engine from making a clanking noise whenever you hit the gas.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

The clanking noise you describe is called timing knock, pinging, or spark knock, depending on who you talk too. If you want to feed it the cheaper stuff, back off the timing a few degrees. The timing mark is on the crank, and with a timing gun, you could do it yourself. Or, take it to a shop and it should cost you about $30. You'll save that on high octane gas in the first month. :)
