Can't say I have ever seen a K1500 wit hthose "4x4" graphics on the side.

That's probably a good thing.

Wow........the first time I've ever seen an S-10 'Cameo'.....would kinda have a hard time believing an S-10 Blazer could haul 3 tons w/that puny V6 though.....

Aw man, you're a year (or three) too late!

And the other day I saw an older Mazda painted white with one of the roll bar things in the bed and I thought it was gonna be the elusive Baja that I've been trying to get pictures of for you for the past two years. Haha, I WILL CATCH IT!

Shouldn't there also have been an '89 Lumina? Didn't they produce both the Celebrity and Lumina for a while? The other W-bodies were launched in '88. I know that the Lumina was launched after the Regal, Cutlass Supreme, and Grand Prix, but was it that much later?

I believe so, however this press release pack that I acquired, was from mid to late 1988, and the only mention of the Lumina was on 'typed' paperwork that accompanied the photoes, along w/ the 'UPCOMING' GEO line. I can scan it in if anyone interested, it is simply text however.

Wow...in 1989, I bought my first new car after getting a job out of college. I looked at the Beretta and Z24, but really wanted a hatchback and a stick. Wound up with an '89 Civic Si that I kept until 1998.

Thanks for the memories of that spring of car shopping.

There's one still around here somewhere that I see from time to time.

I ordered my '89 K1500 in early Sept. '88, and the big 4X4 decal was new to the option list. When I saw how big it was, I definitely passed. '89 was also the first year that the Z71 package would have a "Z71" decal instead of the small "4x4". My pickup was about the third one I ever saw with the "Z71" decal.

The Lumina started production as a 1990 model. There was a 1990 Celebrity too, but only the station wagon version. The sedan was dropped after 1989 & the coupe was dropped after 1988. Where's the 1989 Chevy Spectrum & Beauville/full-sized vans?

My mom had a Celebrity Coupe CL, torquey 2.8, decent car, learned to drive in it.
