1985 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Royale Brogham 5.0 V8 (307 c.i.) from North America
The last of the great American sedans
Right before I started driving the car I bonded the great many rusty areas. Then I had it re-painted as close to the original color (medium sky-blue).
The transmission started to go at 115,000 and I had it rebuilt.
While I was driving home from work during the summer of 2000, it over-heated. I believe that the head gaskets are fried. As it turns out the car over-heated because it had holes in the radiator. It has not been driven except to have it backed into my garage since it over-heated.
While it was operational, I had some of the best times in that car. Its' interior is so spacious that I could fit about 6 football players comfortably.
It was a real animal off the line. I used to have no problems taking out most cars with a V6 engine and some other tanks, like my friend's 1976 Cadillac Sedan de Ville with a 424 V8.
When you drive this car it's like riding on a clouds, you don't even feel the road, much less the bumps.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
