If you're looking for an absolutely massive family car, this 1991 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser is probably the vehicle for you. Essentially Oldsmobile's slightly more luxurious version of the Buick Roadmaster Estate and the Chevrolet Caprice Wagon, the Custom Cruiser is huge -- and it seats eight.

For those of you who don't know the Custom Cruiser or its GM siblings, this is one of the last few ultra-huge, rear-wheel drive cars to come out of General Motors. The Custom Cruiser was only sold through 1992, but the Roadmaster and Caprice lasted through 1996, before GM finally ditched this car's ancient platform and moved on to smaller vehicles that fit shoppers' tastes a bit better.

These days, though, the Custom Cruiser and its siblings are having a bit of a revival, on account of their unusual size and retro style -- and it's hard not to appreciate their powertrains, too: always a massive V8, but with later Roadmaster models upgrading to the Chevrolet Corvette's powerplant, with 260 horsepower.

Unfortunately, the Custom Cruiser never got that engine, but there's still a lot to love with this particular one -- and I mean a lot to love, as this car is 216 inches long. It's also finished in dark red with a red interior that includes a red steering wheel, red carpets and red seats -- something you'd never see today. And it boasts white wall tires and just 55,000 miles.

This Custom Cruiser is offered by Select Auto Works in Omaha, Nebraska, and it's listed for just $8,499 -- and it's a great vehicle if you're looking for a family car throwback to a prior era. Assuming you can afford the fuel bills.
