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.

How important is your facial expression when meeting someone for the first time?

As part of a 2014 study on the matter, researchers at the York University in England analyzed people’s first impressions of 16 social traits using 1,000 different facial images. Those images were organized into three categories: approachability, youthfulness and attractiveness, and dominance.

For years, Cadillac had a death grip on the funeral-vehicle market. While statistics are elusive, it’s safe to say that through the most of the Nineties, Caddy was the dominant player in the last-ride game.

1984 Plymouth Horizon

Perhaps surprisingly, the Plymouth Horizon was the eighth-fastest accelerating car tested by Consumer Guide in 1984.

We’ve been using the word fastest to describe the best-performing rides tested by Consumer Guide in the past. The word we really should be using is quickest. Technically, a fast car has an impressive top speed, and without a test track, and situated in the Chicago suburbs, top speed was never a metric CG attempted to measure.

Robert De Niro was cruising the Boroughs of New York City long before he played a mentally ill cabbie in the 1976 Martin Scorsese classic Taxi Driver–six years before, to be exact. Taxi Driver hit theaters in 1976. De Niro, however, shows off an AMC Ambassador in this forgotten ad from way back in 1970.

1984 Oldsmobike Ninety-Eight

Returning 14.7 mpg, the Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight was one of the worst gas guzzlers tested by Consumer Guide in 1984.

We recently shared a collection of the worst gas guzzlers of 1973 and 1981, and fuel-economy gap between those two model years was massive.

If you were paying attention to marketing in 1984, you likely remember Apple’s landmark television advertisement “1984.” The computer maker’s ad portrayed a dystopian world chillingly similar to the one conceived by George Orwell in his horrifying 1949 novel of the same name.
