In keeping with the numerical series, here's the entry for number 82:
1982 saw the introduction of General Motors' answer to the K-Car, the unholy quartet of the Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera, Pontiac 6000, Buick Century (v. 5.0) and the car shown above, the Chevrolet Celebrity. It should have been a harbinger of the paring-down that would be needed that this horrible, awful car would be reproduced across not two, not three, but four different platforms.
At least Pontiac and Chevy had the common decency to give new model names. Buick reassigned the Century moniker to the uninspiring box, but then again, the "Century" name had adorned the crappy "Aeroback" A-body given to the late 1970s last-gasp "muscle" versions of formerly great cars like the 442 and the Malibu. Oldsmobile denigrating the Cutlass on the little boxy sedan (and station wagon) was the final insult to a formerly great car.
Apparently, these cars were so crappy that they just won't die, as many are still seen puttering around various small towns, still ferrying the little old ladies that bought them in the '80s and early 1990s to church, the supermarket, and post office. While they are aggressively rusting away, the rate of decay is matched by the decline in actual miles driven.
Only seven years left and we'll be done with the 1980s...
That is all.
