1965 Ford Police Car

1965 Ford Ranch Wagon

Last year Ford sold around 20,000 vehicles to law-enforcement agencies. While the number may seem huge, it’s dwarfed by many of Ford’s retail models. The Ford Escape small crossover, for example, accounts for nearly 30,000 sales every month.

1986 Cutlass Supreme

The Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme is 7th on our list of 1986 gas guzzlers.

By 1986, most parts of the country were enjoying a reprieve from rising gas prices. For the first time in a number of years, petrol was again retailing for less than $1.00 per gallon, with $.99 becoming a popular price point for regular unleaded.

1975 Ford Mustang Ghia

I came of age as a car guy under the tutelage of Car and Driver magazine during the Eighties. As such, I was very much an automotive minimalist. Groomed by auto editors with a love of spartan German performance cars, there was little room in my heart for the likes of whitewall tires, fake aero tack-on bits, or trucks of any stripe.

Despite the crushing blows of unleaded gasoline, catalytic converters, and ungainly 5-mph bumpers, 1975 was not actually a boring year, automotively speaking.

1974 Toyota Celica GT

Battered by inflation, an energy crisis, and new low-lead gasoline, the American car shoppers of 1974 really weren’t in the mood for happy advertising that promised ethereal virtues such as spirit, pride of ownership, or neighborhood one-upmanship.

A few readers who checked out our Fastest Cars of 1971 post expressed some dismay—and incredulity—that all of ranked vehicles posted 0-60-mph times within just one second of each other. In fact, those cars all posted times within half a second of each other.

If you were even partially hip on current events in 1973, you likely recall the OPEC Oil Crisis.
