1977 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Royale 403 from North America
My grandmother gave my Oldsmobile Delta 88 to me when I was 15. That has to be the best car I ever owned. It had the 403 CID engine that would beat Z28s from light to light. Time from 0-60mph was 6.4 seconds.
My Delta was red on red on red and came with rare Olds rims. I trusted that car to take me anywhere, and I regret to this day trading it. I'm constantly trying to find another one.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Though these were awesome cars, they were not that incredibly quick from 0-60. the New Mustang V8 has 315 HP and 320 Lbs of torque, and can only do 0-60 in 5.5 seconds.
0-60 in 8 or 9 seconds is more reasonable. The 403 V8 had a lot of torque, but only put out about 190 HP. It was chocked with tiny intake ports, low compression ratio, and a mediocre 4 barrel carburetor.

They'll never make another one; in fact they'll never make anything like it.
It is truly sad what's become of this country.

"Time from 0-60mph was 6.4 seconds."
- First let me tell you that I am one of the biggest Olds fans on the net. But this is asking too much to believe. The only way that car could do that 0-60 time is if it were dropped out of a B-52!
