David E. Davis Was Wrong

He said the A-bodies would be the most successful GM cars ever.  Why was he wrong?

Buick Century 1.5
Chocolate velvet on the inside
  • No v. 1.0 models exist any longer.  There are plenty of 1.5s like this – well, more than zero – and you can’t swing a dead cat without hitting a 2.0.  Still, Cadillac Escalade.  Boom, roasted.
  • This?  AYFKM?  Yellow on the outside, brown on the inside?  Bizarro world dog turd is what that color combination is.
  • Nevermind that Papa Don drove one like this – he got the employee discount, or, more likely, they paid him to take this shitbox.
  • Nevermind too, that Phid introduced me to the song Delirious in the 1982 version of this car.

They were handy for CMU road trips.  I’ll give them that.
