Citation Update 3: Green from the Inside Out!
Nowadays, it seems almost every interior is either black or dark grey, or, if you’re lucky, beige. Gone, it seems, are the days of full red, green, blue and even white interiors; at least for everyday people-mover-type cars. That’s why, when I was looking up a colour for my Citation X-11, I wanted to get […]
Citation Update II: Engine Trouble!
When you “stepped up” to the X-11 trim in the mid ‘80s, you got more than just meaningless decals and a (likely non-functional) trunk lip spoiler; you also got the 2.8L V6 engine! Now, I know in this day and age that a V6 producing a massive 135 hp and a stump-pulling 145 ft.lbs of […]
Citation Update 1: Body (not to be) in White
For the most part, the Citation notchback is not one of those cars people remember fondly, if at all.

November is a month often associated with choices. In the United States, the elections are always held in November, and for the rest of us, our choices are often centered around what weight of coat to put on or whether to try and get one more week out of our summer tires or switch, begrudgingly, […]
How Low Can You Go?
The originally much-lauded, later much-villified, GM “X-Car” of the early 1980’s is not something a lot of people care to remember. The Citation’s “sporty” version was the X-11, and Revell has seen fit to reissue their Citation X11 as a lowrider. Check it out, and remember, it’s unlikely ANY car can get lower opinions than […]
