1975 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Royale 350 rocket from North America
It's a tough car
Nothing really has gone wrong with her since I bought it, except the front calipers are sticking from sitting for 10 years!
This car is great. It's 33 years old and has been to hell and back. 8 previous owners and a lot of mileage, she is in the rough right now.
It has major rust on the rear quarters, and some minor rust everywhere else, but she still goes like a bat out of hell.
She is a tough car and is slowly being restored; body parts are just hard to get for her because it's not a Camaro or a Firebird, it's a car that nobody wants to fix up because it's an oddball and she's worn out. If you are like me and love these cars, you will understand!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Some people have missed the point, regarding the owner's experience of running an old car. Yes it's seen better days, but it's a piece of American automotive history!!! It can easily be fixed, it's not overburdened with complex electronics, tough as old nails, and I bet it puts a smile on the owner's face!
If more people like this lady, treasured the old cars as much as she does, then perhaps more people would appreciate that America used to produce very distinctive cars, that had character, style, and could be distinguished from any other vehicle.
Unfortunately today's cars are mostly uniform in design, character, and are incredibly expensive to repair and maintain.
I personally find most of today's cars to be 'clone' like in appearance, with drab interiors of black, grey or beige plastic, or any other uniform material.
Good luck to you lady!
