Explorer GMC Savannah Coversion

This Explorer conversion of a Chevrolet Express Van is painted in the company’s “Southern Comfort” livery and includes the “Antelope” ground-effects package.

Blame the minivan. Prior to the 1984 arrival of the first minivans–the ground-breaking Dodge Caravan and Plymouth Voyager–the vehicle options for a family of six were fairly limited.

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.

New York Auto ShowIt’s just a concept for now, but this “4-door coupe” seems a logical addition to the existing Mercedes-AMG GT 2-door Coupe.

New York Auto ShowAs we’ve come to know, slapping an AMG grille and badging on a garden-variety Mercedes can completely change its personality. And now the treatment has been given to a range of AWD wagons shown at the 2017 New York Auto Show.

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.
