My Uncle owned a gas station at that time. It was crazy, the car dealers were just about giving away big cars. I remember driving him to pickup a 1 year old Olds delta 88 he bought for 2K. Thing was a tank. He kept it for many years.
Those were the days that got Toyota and Honda really moving. The American companies tried but they were coming out with stuff like the Pinto and Vega which didn't compare.
