It's Alright — The car is two tone blue and has a bad interior. Handling is pretty good. Does well in the snow since its a front wheel drive vehicle. It gets pretty good gas mileage, and requires little maintenance. The car is fun to drive.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Still runs

Cons: It's Old

This Is A Fantastic Investment Cheap To Repair — I had a 1985 Chevy Celebrity Wagon, this is a very reliable and in expensive car to own. During the winter months this car would start reguardless of how cold it got, it would pull through the snow and ice with no problems no matter how bad it got. This car gets excellent gas mileage. The only bad thing about this car is when I got over 220,000 miles I started to have a lot of problems with the front end and the body started to rust pretty badly other than this the car ran darn good.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: fuel and reliability

Cons: body rusting and front end issue after 220,000 miles

Great For Long Trips — The one I drove was brown and it was known within my circle of friends then as the "Brown Cow!" It was a roomy car, first one I ever drove where the gears where by the steering wheel. I felt like I was sitting on my sofa as I was taking long drives to Tennesee, Louisiana, Virginia and Texas. Absolute comfort, fun memories!

Pros: Comfortable driving

Cons: Old-fashioned car.

Pretty Nice Car — I really enjoyed my Celeb. It had a four cylinder that had sufficient power. It also road great and got darn good gas mileage for a car that big (30+ mpg on trips as I recall). It was dark blue, which really looked nice when it was clean and waxed. For some reason, the car had recurring problems with the steering rack. One was replaced under warranty and the second I had to pay for out of pocket. Doing basic maintenance on it was a chore because the engineers put everything on the back side of the engine. So I scraped a lot of knuckles and learned a few new words working on that car. The car had a lot of life left in her when the computer gave up the ghost. It was going to cost more to replace it than the car was worth so I sold it to a mechanic. I'd like to hope it's still out there somewhere. :)

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Gas mileage, interior and trunk room

Cons: Steering rack, engine computer, difficult to do your own maintenance
