Buick Invicta, 1959–1963

One of Buick's greatest early Dreadnoughts was the short-lived but extremely memorable Invicta series, which made its debut in 1959 as the replacement for the Century. The unusual name derives from the...

Mustang SVO, 1984-1986

Trying to keep the performance flame flickering in the late '70s wasn't easy. Big-cube, high-powered V-8s had been all but outlawed. Only a handful of smallblocks were still gimping along, their...

The Stinker: 1978–1985 Cadillac Seville Diesel

As the second energy crisis in a decade kidney-punched an inflation-addled nation, several automakers began to eye the diesel engine as a way to attract customers interested in high-mileage vehicles. The...

1978–1990 Dodge Omni (Oh Lawsee!)

It became a depressing tendency in the late 1970s to bestow optimistic-sounding names on increasingly scrunched-down and browbeaten economy cars that were at best proletarian-geared “transportation modules” as enjoyable as day-old...

Oldsmobile had a long and distinguished history - and suffered a slow, painful death. The process of mortification began in the early 1980s, when General Motors gutted the formerly independent engineering departments...

GM's Pontiac division was sent off on its own version of the Trail of Tears in 2009 - after years of broken treaties and forked tongue-talking with the corporation's upper management. Part...

Chevy’s Better Beetle

The Chevy Corvair has something of a bad reputation - among those who don't know much about it, anyhow. Arguably GM's most daring (and technologically advanced) car of the 1960s, it...

Chrysler New Yorker, 1955-1982

There's a reason it's known as the Empire State. New York is outsized and audacious - not a place for the timid. So is the car named after the Big Apple. It's...

In the rearview: Pontiac Aztek

Well, it wasn't a bad idea. Then again, neither was the Titanic. The great ship ended up at the bottom of the ocean as the result of a lethal combination of bad judgment,...
