1966 Oldsmobile StarfireReview
The Land Yacht — It's the biggest thing on four wheels you could buy in 1966 without a CDL. It handles like a yacht and is just as comfortable. It sounds wonderful and looks even better. It's the easiest thing to work on; the engine compartment has enough room to rent to a family of Mexicans. It sucks down premium gas at a rate that would give Al Gore a heart attack and it an all around hoot to drive.
Pros: It's absolutley impractical in every way.
Cons: It's absolutely impractical in every way.

Quite literally a little old lady car--the previous owner was ninety-one when I bought the then-fourteen-year-old Starfire, which had only 50,000 miles on it at the time. Little sister now owns it ... Read More
