    That's not that far from where my sister lives. If the seller wasn't so tight lipped, I'd suggest she go there and check it out. I wouldn't just go by what the sticker says

    About as bland a color as there ever was.

    Another totally bland survivor from nearly 40 years ago. Maybe this '82 survived because no one had any interest in driving it. Even sadder, a little more than a decade earlier Olds was selling 442's.

    I don't really consider it harsh, just what it is, this car is like a 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage, inexpensive to buy, cheap to drive and maintain, reliable. But slow and boring to drive. Nothing wrong with it, just not what I would look for in a car.

    Despite being a red and white fan, I don't mind that shade of sand brown at all. I could live with it.
    Here's one way of dealing with sluggish quarter mile records:

    But then you would have to live with unimaginable torque steer!!!! The amount of torque steer the 2.8 V6 with the 5-speed manual trans the 83 Pontiac Phoenix SD I once drove was really really bad! And the car still could not get out of its own way!!!!
