Front Seats:
Maintenance Cost:

1982 Cutlass Cruiser — Lots of get up and go, not much top end. Geared for city driving. Very low maintenance. Fuel consumption varies with road conditions and driving style. Fairly responsive steering. For a wagon it's surprisingly fun to drive. Difficult to find model-specific parts. Great conversation piece as well.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It's rarity.

Cons: It's rarity.

Oldsmobile Diesel "the Barge" — Well, it is a 1982 Oldsmobile Diesel "Custom Cruiser" wagon (it's the fullsize wagon based on the Delta 88, similar to the Chevrolet Caprice, Pontiac Safari, and Buick Estate Wagon of the same year). It's a project in the works (needs a transmission rebuild, so I'm installing a Turbo 350 transmission while I rebuild the TH200-4R "overdrive" unit for better fuel economy). YEAH, It's a now rare 350 cubic inch DIESEL! With the overdrive transmission, it is easily capable of over 30mpg highway (with the 3 speed auto, it can achieve the high 20s/low 30s). Best of all, it is a potential candidate for BioDiesel or Vegetable Oil conversion. As for appearance, it's a bit rough right now (paint is dull, woodgrain is all but faded into oblivion ....but the Oldsmobile Diesel badge is intact, and so too is the engine).
