1983 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme

For 2022, the Chevrolet Equinox compact crossover will be available with just one engine–a 1.5-liter turbocharged four. A brawny turbo 2.0-liter engine was previously available, but it seems demand for the bigger mill was light–it was dropped after the 2020 model year.

1975 cutlass supreme ad

Many members of the Consumer Guide Automotive staff also work on Collectible Automobile magazine. A few days ago, a small collection of vintage automobile advertisements and dealer brochures landed on CA Editor-in-Chief John Biel’s desk, courtesy of a reader in Wisconsin. Most of the ads were from non-automotive magazines, so they weren’t the typical pieces for muscle cars and such that were placed in the “buff books.”

Note: The following story was excerpted from the April 2017 issue of Collectible Automobile magazine.

Introduced for 1982, the Cutlass Ciera was Oldsmobile’s version of General Motors’s new A-body quartet of family cars with the Chevrolet Celebrity, Buick Century, and Pontiac 6000. All were built on a front-drive chassis largely cribbed from the 1980-vintage X-car compacts. The pricier A-bodies shared those compacts’ 104.9-inch wheelbase, but somehow avoided the X-car’s trouble-prone reputation.

1999, Last Cutlass

1999 Oldsmobile Cutlass

In 1991, Oldsmobile sold a lot of Cutlasses. That simple fact probably doesn’t surprise anyone, at least not until you realize that of the seven car models Olds offered in ’91, three were dubbed Cutlass.

My father has owned a total of one non-American-brand vehicles in his life. That vehicle was a 1999 Subaru Forester, which he purchased used from me. Now in his eighties, my dad has never strayed too far from a core vehicle type—that being a largish sedan featuring inoffensive styling and something more than 4-cylinder power under the hood. In reverse order, his most recent cars include a Chrysler 300, Buick Lucerne, Oldsmobile Aurora, and an Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme.

1994 Buick Regal GS

Note: The following story was excerpted from the December 2020 issue of Collectible Automobile magazine.

Some of the hottest cars out of Detroit in 1987 were Buick Regals. The Grand National and limited-production GNX were seriously fast and commanded respect on the street and at the strip. It was also the end of an era, because a new front-wheel-drive Regal was being readied for 1988 and turbocharged muscle was not part of its equation. The sportiest new Regal was the Gran Sport coupe, and its 1992-96 iteration can make for some fun cheap wheels.

1983 Buick Century T-Type

Just as consumers are now beginning to grapple with the notion of owning an electric vehicle, car buyers once debated whether or not go with front-wheel drive. Really. Front-drive cars were still a fairly new, unfamiliar idea to the average American car shopper in 1983, though the pioneering front-drive Volkswagen Rabbit had been selling in volume on our shores since 1975.

1975 Chevrolet Caprice Estate wagon

After a year of cancelled car shows due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there’s lots of pent-up energy and interest around the 2021 car-event season—car lovers are anxious to get out of the garage and back to their favorite shows and cruise nights. One of our favorite summer “super shows” is the Goodguys Heartland Nationals at the Iowa State Fairgrounds in Des Moines, IA. One of the longest-running events on the Goodguys schedule (this year’s edition was the 30th annual), the Heartland Nats always takes place on the weekend closest to the 4th of July, and regularly draws more than 4000 vehicles. This year’s show enjoyed record-breaking participation: almost 5000 registered vehicles filled the spacious fairgrounds facility.

Note: The following story was excerpted from the December 2019 issue of Collectible Automobile magazine.

Chevrolet performance models are often named after their esoteric option codes that start with the letter Z. We’d guess that most everyone reading this will immediately know what Z28 or Z06 means in the context of the Camaro and Corvette. A smaller group may remember the Cavalier Z24, and somebody must recall the Beretta Z26. For this installment of Cheap Wheels we’ve tapped into another of Chevy’s lower-profile “Z” machines, the 1991-1994 Lumina Z34.
