One of the infamous GM "X-bodies". Ab-so-lutely the worst car I ever owned.
At 700 miles [that's only two zeros] the subframe holding the engine and trans fell partially out onto my driveway. Suffered from sudden and intermittent power brake failure.
But the most adrenaline got pumping when one evening in the left lane of the Garden State Parkway at rush hour: sudden and complete loss of power steering and brakes, all electrical, plus a stall. Dumped it for a big loss.

But a pretty sharp model!
