Slurping gas at a 16.8-mpg rate, the Oldsmobile Toronado was the 8th thirstiest vehicle tested by Consumer Guide in 1981.

A lot can happen in the span of eight years. An industrious student can get through medical school, the United States can elect two presidents, and the television show Full House can run its full eight-season course.

Auto shows are a great place to see these colors up close and in person on a new vehicle, instead of looking at a computer screen or a paint chip at the dealer. If you’re an extroverted type who wants your ride to turn heads, an out-of-the-ordinary color is a great way to do it. Keep in mind, however, that these colors can fall out of fashion much quicker than the “safe” standby colors, which can be an issue come resale time.
