Description:
1992 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser. Less than 4,3xx made it its final year. This one has the L05 5.7 and the 3.23 final gear with limited slip. Oh, and it's mine. And yes, those are Buick Rallye wheels.

Nice boat.

I never thought one of these would look good on Buick Rallyes with whitewalls but it does. Just needs the Olds rocket badge replaced on the grille.

180 hp/300 lb-ft with 15/23 MPG. The 5.0 had 170 hp/255 lb-ft and the EXACT same fuel economy. And it weighed over 5,000 lbs.

Umm...Recommend you start modding. I assmue its an LT-1.

#6, Or accept that it's a big lazy family cruiser and just enjoy it as it is. :)

Does everything need to be a numbers game?

You know what cars fail the numbers game?

Subaru BRZ/Toyota GT86/Scion FR-S
Mazda Miata
CitroŽn DS

Are they all amazing cars? Yes (Albeit, in vastly different ways). Are there any quantifiable statistics where they lead? Oh hell no.

What are cars that play the numbers game and lead statistics? Cars like the Mitsubishi Mirage and Nissan Versa. Are they good cars? Oh hell no.

#8, Define good. Mirage is a terrible car, Versa is a terrible car. But for people who don't know shit about cars, I suppose they're fine cars. It appears all the Mirages here are owned by either hoarders or Somalians; over half the ones I see have either broken bumpers or missing hubcaps, and sometimes both.

#9, I think I was just venting... becuase truly terrible cars like the Mirage and Versa are selling like hotcakes, because the lowest common denominator sees "High MPG" or "largest interior room", and buy the damn things.

The Toyobaru twins are withering on the vine because Uhhmericans want high power numbers, high grip numbers... you can't quantify the driving enjoyment of a car in a magazine ad or a road test article...

#10, unless you read Evo or Top Gear :P

but seriously though..

as far as pleasing vehicles I've driven..
C-Max (not a drivers' car, but dammit its a practical vehicle that serves a function as a road-tripper, sleeping bag, pickup, and track car ( to the bike track). Focus SE 1.0 Ecoboost 6 speed. Its fun, until you realize that in daily traffic, its usually 1-2-3-2-1 in stop nad go traffic. Another on my list is the Cruze, even with the 6 spd automatic. The 1.8 is terrible but the Turbo 1.4 is where its at.

As far as terrible cars, I've gotta say the most recent Malibu, the '04-'07? Grand Prix, the newest incarnation of the Nissan Sentra and Altima, and if it counts (because I had one as a rental), the newest Corolla.

#11, You're basically the only American I personally know who reads Evo or Top Gear, let alone both.

As I've said before in a different thread, out my way most of the Mirages and Versas are rental cars. Barely anyone seems to buy them unless they truly don't give a crap about cars or think it's cute. The Prius C wipes the floor with them in sales here. I see a fair number of Toyobaru twins around here, but California is a different animal than many other parts of the country where the "enthusiast" answer is Camaro, Mustang or diesel 4x4 truck.

#12, I also read (infrequently but still) Road and Track, Automobile, and Motor Trend. I will say that in the past 5 to 6 years, Americans publications have gotten better at actual reviews (even some of them humorous), while IMO Evo still holds the crown, TG has started to slip a little. I think peak years for car magazines in general were 2012 to 2013.

#10, I don't want one because the interior is pretty cramped. You can tell the designers were from gen x. The #s for it/them don't bother me.

Right. My car does not weigh 5,000lbs. That is all.

YOU'RE RIGHT.

#15, Quick Googling gives a figure of approximately 4470lbs... that about in the ballpark?

To be honest, with how cars have bloated up, over all, since the days of the bathtub Caprice, that's not *that* heavy... especially when you compare it with the trucks and crossovers that families now buy to do "station wagon" duties...

[edit] The closest comparison I can think of is the Chevrolet Traverse... and it weighs ~250lbs MORE...

#18, 4,439 to 4,828, depending on trim and options.

#17, Yeah, sounds about right.

I just drove it today. Given our nice weather this January, the roads are completely salt-free. I've put over 10k on it since I bought it. It's only needed an O2 and coolant temp sensor in that time.
