1983 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Royale 5.0 307 V8 from North America
If you don't want to work on a car, buy a delta 88
Since I have owned this beast the only thing that has gone wrong with it was the fuel pump.
It has some surface rust but not bad for 25 yrs.
A minor tear in back seat.
I love this car. its acceleration is amazing.
The first day I owned it I took it to a track to see what its got and it topped at 127 mph, and I was at 60 mph in around 7 seconds. superb for this size of car.
If you don't watch it, it'll spin the tires pretty easily.
The brakes surprised the ___ outta me, stop on a dime.
The trunk is huge.
There is a ton of room for the driver and passengers.
If you are going 30 mph it feels like you are going like 15 because it is such a boat.
And it has a pretty tight turning radius for its size.
The only thing not so great about this awesome car is the fact that it goes through a 20 gallon tank of gas in just over 225 miles.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Anything over single digits is good gas mileage.

Cheaper to own an old car worth a few hundred or a thousand dollars and pay for the gas than to buy a new one for $25,000.

Well of course I have never financed any car, new or used, but I would have assumed most new car payments would be more like $500/month. Also because I value comfort and safety I much prefer to drive a large older car.
