Oh this takes me back to my old olds wagon.....famously named the Exxon Valdez by the people at my work. You didn't say the year, but I know its a 1985....cuz mine was lol. I bought the wagon version off a guy for $200....had 187,000 miles on it. There was a screw in middle of the dash....at some point someone had torn the dash down and couldn't get it back together.

EDIT: Oh yeah, the hood is so heavy you could stage executions with it???
