1983 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Royale 5.0L(307 cu. in.) from North America
It's a great car for big car lovers
It's hard to start cold. I have to continually pump the accelerator until the engine takes off, but I haven't investigated the problem yet either. Incidentally, the temperatures were sub-zero the first week I had it.
It also needs new rear springs.
The headliner is starting to sag.
What a comfortable car!
It has new shocks, and it rides nice and firm as the GM large cars do. It's a smooth ride, but you still feel attached to the road.
It's a North Dakota car, so it hasn't seen much salt, so there is very little rust. The under body and gas tank are superbly clean for a 21-year-old car.
Except for the headliner, the interior is in excellent condition.
It was a steal for $800.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

The reason you have to tap the gas to get up to speed may be because you need a fuel pump. (CHECK) you're welcome.

I have a 1983 Olds Delta 88 with less than a hundred thousand on it, and it's absolutely amazing, but I recommend you change the headliner because it is gonna sag even more, and there was a lot of crap in there when I changed mine.
