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.

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.

1981 Oldsmobile Toronado

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.

There’s nothing like a bit of historical data to put 2016 new-car prices in context. For a healthy dose of perspective, scroll down to the 1973-model-year Mercedes-Benz prices below and just sort of let them sink in.

Today, most wagons are luxury-brand wagons. By our count, there’s just one non-luxury, non-crossover wagon available for sale in the U.S., and that’s the Volkswagen Jetta.

1979 Cadillac Seville

What price luxury? In 1979 terms, that price was around $8000… because that’s about where the base prices of the near-luxury Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight and Buick Electra kicked in. Just a little higher up the dollar tree we find the Chrysler New Yorker.
