Bridging the gap between the third-gen Malibu and the 1st-gen Lumina, the Celebrity was in fact the top-selling car in America for 1986 (how soon we forget!). Most came with the same Iron Duke four-banger that was used by the bean counters to castrate the Fiero, but reliability was much improved over previous front-wheel-drive cars from The General and the Celebrity was allowed to fade away gracefully in the late 80s. As with so many Detroit cars of its era, a touch of turbocharging and a stiffer suspension would have worked wonders, but that's hindsight for ya.
