1979 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Royale 5.7 liter
Good, comfortable, reliable car
At 110k miles, replaced the timing gear and chain set with a new oil pump.
Replaced the starter, radiator, brakes, tires, and A/C compressor.
Very good handling car, rare Brougham cloth seats, which was the first year for them on the Royale.
Good A/C, good cruise control, nice power and starting to get minimal rust on the front fender and rear lower quarter. Original aged nicely. Good solid bumpers too, since these tend to rust.
It's a southern car, so it's probably better than average.
Easy to see out of these, and they have nimble steering.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
