My brother in law bought a brand new special edition Magnum in that era. Honestly I was pretty impressed with its styling them. It was a departure in styling. Didn't own it, but drove it around the beach on weekends. Pretty decent acceleration and handling. Sticker price was pretty high. You never really see this model anywhere today. As with many vehicles, they are all pretty nice when brand new. I suspect these were not especially collectible and suffered the boneyard fate. Pontiac had some interesting styling as well in that time frame. Cars like this had nice comfortable rides. Horsepower was bleak, but fortunately today it just keeps improving in that area.

And completely different, no longer being body on frame.
