1978 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Royale 5.0 350 V8 from North America
Powerful, well built, all American!
Needed new plug wires and an oil change, but that's about it.
My 78 Delta 88 was passed down to me from my grandfather. I love this car! It takes me wherever I want.
I can smoke a little Honda Civic easily. Those other compact cars don't stand a chance in the world ha ha.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I'm jealous. I've owned 2 of these classic Olds Delta 88 and and 98 Regency cars myself of the same vintage, and wish I'd never parted company with them. There is not a new car on the market today that will match up to the quality, looks, "personality", and feel of this classic car. Hang onto it forever if you can!
The 350 is a 5.7 liter by the way, the 5.0 is their Olds 307. Yours likely has the 350 due to year of manufacture. In the early 80's they switched to the 5.0L 307 for fuel economy.
