If you didn't already know that, well, now you do so we can move on to more important details like different versions of the vehicle and how many turbo Regals were produced.
Recently, I had an epiphany, but not a good one. "We haven't had an American car on Weekend Wallpaper in far too long," I realized. "This needs to be corrected immediately." But what car should I choose? A Camaro? A Mustang? A Charger? Some old-school muscle car? Perhaps some kind of Saleen?

One of the most tired cliches in all of autojournodom is "Darth Vader's Ride." You've read it one million times, I've used the phrase several
