Cars Timeline

Over the years I’ve had many cars. From simply driving for enjoyment to the need for utility each one was special in some way. Here you can get a glimpse of each one.

1984 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

Thinking back I would have to say it was around 1992 that I bought the Oldsmobile. After having had a accident which totaled my Pontiac 6000, I found myself driving this car which was almost the same car in terms of body style and engine. As a matter of fact, about the only difference in the body of the two cars was the front and rear fascias.

I had my share of problems with this car and spent a good deal of green on repairs during my ownership. When I eventually traded her in for the Grand Marquis the dealership even remarked about the stack of repair receipts in the glove box (not limited to a new engine!).

Even with all the repairs though I stilled enjoyed driving this car. She had power windows and locks, power drivers seat, tilt wheel and a 2.5 liter 4–cylinder engine. The front seat was a 60/40 split bench with the arm rest integrated into the drivers portion. She also had A/C but unfortunately that never worked. The cost to have repaired was more than I was willing to spent back then.

Below I dug up some pictures of the Ciera. As I recall these pictures were take shortly after I bought her.
