Great old Olds 88
Developed oil leak somewhere around 100,000 miles. I had to add a quart at every fillup.
Other than that, normal wear and tear.
Sadly, rust spelled the end for this lovely car, and had to be scrapped by the late 1980's.
I still miss this car. I bought it off my Dad in 1985, but was in our family for many years before that.
It was palomino ivory with matching vinyl roof, Lots of chrome trim everywhere, and massive chrome bumpers.
Options included power antenna, AM-FM wonderbar radio, cornering lights, 6 way power bench seat, vacuum operated trunk release and perhaps a couple of others.
May not sound like much these days, but for the time was pretty impressive.
Seats were soft cloth, and comfortable. The ride was soft and smooth.
Power steering was "finger touch"; you could turn the wheel with your little finger with no strain.
My favorite part was the engine, the 455 V8 was a monster. I'm not sure what the horsepower was, but this car could blow everything else off the road.
It was definitely a road cruiser, great on long trips.
The only thing bad about it was that it did not take corners well. But it sure had a great look to it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
