I paid $1,000 for this car this spring
(still worth around 2,900.. good deal
huh?). When I first got it, my friends
did not know what kind of car it was.
When i told them it was a lumina, they
couldn't believe it. And with the 3.4
200 horse V-6 it's not much short of a
Camaro. Overall. a good car.
3.4 V-6. The exterior styling was well
ahead of it's time in 1992. This car
also handles very well. Good BOSE
The interior is very cheap. Most of the
interior is falling apart. Also, 17"
wheels wouldn't hurt.
I pulled $2000 together and purchased
a torch red 1991 Chevy Lumina Z34.
For a car 12 years old and with some
134K miles on it, it still performs
with more stamina than I would've ever
expected of it, and its stylish good
looks turn my family's/friend's/co-
worker's heads in a way that makes me
think I got the better end of the
deal. But I didn't just buy it for
those amicable qualities--I was
looking for reliability. Something to
get me to school, work, and then back
home when the day was through (did I
mention I live in Minnesota where we
have below freezing weather 3 months
of the year?) I definately got that,
I like the throaty sound that eminates
from the dual exhaust that only a
throttle body injection engine could
deliver. The grilles on the hood and
the rear spoiler make the car look
like a true sports car. And the 3.4L
V6 makes it feel like a true sports
I would like to see improvments in
user-friendliness, in terms of
operating on the engine. Just to
change the spark plugs requires
removal of a panel and an extention
socket adapter to reach far into the
plenum where they're located. To me
that just seems like a bit too much
