1984 Oldsmobile 88 Royale 307 V8 from North America
Gotta keep it alive, because gov stimulus got a lot of these big boats crushed!!!
Radio does not work all the time, and the antenna will not retract.
Analog clock does not work, but you can hear it running.
AC system would not blow cold air.
Just started a new job, and noticed this car in a corn field. Four and a half years later, I approached the land owner about purchasing, and we settled on $500. I installed a battery and 5 gallons of gas, and drove it home.
After inspecting the body, I found a new front clip, both rear fenders were repaired, and minor rust on doors.
Brakes went out, and I could smell gas when I parked it. I installed new brakes from master cylinder to each wheel, exhaust system, fuel lines & tank and transmission lines.
This car starts every time, drives straight down the road, and it gives me 25mpg. Interior is excellent, seats 3 in the front, and 4 in the back.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
