1983–1988 Hurst Olds/442

Oldsmobile had a long and distinguished history - and suffered a slow, painful death. The process of mortification began in the early 1980s, when General Motors gutted the formerly independent engineering departments...

In the Rearview Mirror: 1977-81 Z28 Camaro

The smart athlete retires gracefully, at his peak - before he starts to slip and give off that “has-been” stink. To their credit, that’s what Chevrolet managers did when they discontinued...

1976–1980 Dodge Aspen R/T and Plymouth Volaré Road Runner

A reeling and soon-to-be bankrupt Chrysler Corp. produced one of the most pathetic paper-tiger muscle cars ever in the embarrassing 1976to 1980 Dodge Aspen R/T and the Aspen’s sister car, the...

I've begun to notice a fair number of old (Mark I) Beetles on the road. The original ones.  Last sold here (new) in the late '70s. Not at car shows (or...

Retro Review: 1980-’81 Z28 Camaro
