  1. I remember the 4.3L V6 debuting in 1985, but Chevrolet first V6 based on the small block V8 was a 200 cubic inch version that debuted in the downsized 1978 Malibu. It was upsized to 3.8L in 1980 229 cubic inches (full size cars still had the 250 inline six as standard for 1977 through 1979), which was standard in the full size models and then upsized again in 1985 to 4.3L. I remember having driver's training in a late 70's Malibu with the 3.3. It could barely go up a hill.
  2. The RWD X body Phoenix did have a base 2.5L Iron Duke some of the years, which I hope this one did not have. The 231 V6 would have been adequate.
  3. I believe 1958 was the first year Chevrolet used the B body.
  4. year 1 of the 33 year run of the Panther platform, of which I have owned 3.
  5. One of the greatest wagons ever. A wealthy dentist in my childhood neighborhood owned a 75 Custom Cruiser (he built a mansion in a middle class neighborhood of ranch style houses). In 1981, he sold it to a girl in my high school named Charlene, who later traded it for a 1986 Ford Escort EXP.
  6. I won't be surprised if CT6 moves to Lansing with CT4 and CT5, but I also won't be surprised if the car is just dropped because it has sold so poorly. People with the income to buy new cars just want SUV's, crossovers, and 4 door pickups.
  7. Or a 1980 to 1991 Cadillac Deville, Fleetwood, or Brougham ( or even the 1980 to 1984 Oldsmobile 98 or Buick Electra) and put a 6.2L V8 in it.
  8. I saw a Continental last week at the Ford dealer. It had no more presence than a Camry. It isn't wide enough. I am sure it is much more pleasant to drive with the Ecoboost V6's. I don't understand why Buick will sell the Insignia here again as a Regal. If it were up to me, Cadillac would drop the ATS and CTS, redesign the XTS, and have the CT6 and XTS replacement as its sedans, with 3 crossovers and the Escalade.
  9. The allpar insiders think the Autoline article is wrong. I think the Jeep brand may have plateaued in recent months, based upon the sales figures.
  10. One rumor on Allpar is that the Cherokee will move to the Giorgio platform when redesigned. Apparently, there will be no more products on the CUSW platform (excluding the Pacifica and maybe a large crossover which supposedly are loosely based upon CUSW).
  11. This is old news because the website allpar has been reporting for months that the LX will last until the 2021 model year. Also, LX has a few parts from the Mercedes E class, but I have read that it has more parts from the LH platform.
  12. Around 2009, I said here that Chrysler should go out of business, and a poster named 427SS gave me a severe cursing. Anyway here is good article by respected European journalist Georg Kacher - http://www.automobilemag.com/news/fca-running-money-revive-maserati-alfa-romeo/
