Best of the Worst: Low-Mile, Manual Trans Cadillac Cimarron

Remember the Cimarron? Yes, it was Caddy's J-Body, which means it shared many a part with the Chevy Cavalier, among too many other variants.  Any surviving Cimarron is an oddity today, but low-mileage, manually-shifted example is something truly special - slow, but special.


At $2,650, why not pick up this unusual bit of terrible GM history?  If it was closer, this might find its way into the Oddimotive fleet.  We'd want to check out the trim in front of the rear bumper, however, as it looks like this car might have taken a "love tap" at some point.

In pictures, this doesn't look as terribly cheap as these seemed back in the day.  Surely, it does in person.


From this angle, only the wheels and a few trim items indicate this isn't a Cavalier (or Skyhawk, or...).


Is there a problem with the quarter trim, or is this how GM built 'em?


The front at least has some Caddy-unique items.  Fog lights pretty much meant business back in the day - too bad this car couldn't back it up.



Things are only mildly better than a Chevy here, but the manual shifter is a nice sight.  Condition supports the claim of very low mileage.


Caddy was nice enough to provide a tach on the manual-equipped Cimarron.


Seat leather is reminiscent of other period Cadillacs.  This does, at least, have power seats, too.


Rear seat has matching, classically Caddy leather. Leg room is hard to judge here, but we imagine there's very little.


A sideways, naturally aspirated, inline four.  Doesn't that just scream Cadillac?
