It was a shame how the Cadillac name had all the blood drained out of it by Malaise Era faux-classy models, and Chrysler wasn’t far behind; by 1982, you could buy what was essentially a Dodge Diplomat with New Yorker badging. A New Yorker with a Slant Six?
At least this car came with a “Combustion Computer.” Solid state, no less— leave the vacuum tubes to the GAZ Volga 3102! In spite of the Slant Six being an extremely un-luxurious powerplant, it was nearly bulletproof.
Still, this New Yorker stayed on the street for nearly 30 years. That’s longer than most Corollas live.
