We can never quite peg it, but Mr. Regular has a knack for nailing various cars throughout Regular Car Reviews. The epiphany of each vehicle towards the end resonates oh so well.
That goes for the 1990 Chevrolet Lumina, a vehicle entangled in childhood memories for some of us the official vehicle of 1990s parking lots. Did the Lumina conquer like General Motors thought it would? No. But it’s an intriguing car nonetheless.
With a 3100 V6 engine and four-speed automatic, this was to be the brand’s entry-level family sedan. Except, Ford was on top of their game with the Taurus. And Honda was building Accords. And Toyota was selling the Camry. Therefore, it became overlooked.
But for those of us who house experience with the Lumina of yesteryear, we know exactly what this video is talking about. Saturday morning runs to the bank with mom, shopping mall outings to find an outfit for “Aunt Margaret’s thing.” It’s all oh so familiar.
