1987 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Royale from North America


This is a great solid, well put together classy car with power to boot


Minor annoying things have gone wrong with this car. The most annoying is that the arm rests are very loose and almost falling off. The wipers work most of the time, but has "fits" sometimes. The power seat is very sluggish, so we unplugged it. We are replacing the front power window lift motor, it still works, but is very slow. We replaced the battery right after we bought it, and it always starts.

General Comments:

The car is very fast, if you are going 65 mph, and step on the gas, it will take off. It's fun in that respect to drive it.

The car is plain, it's hard to see it as a sporty car, although I have heard it referred to as a "sleeper", because it is quick and fast. It does seem like it should belong to a old Grandpa, mine did, and was a one owner and that is why mine is in such good condition. I wish it was anything, but blue, my last three cars were blue! I am tired of blue!

It is big, roomy and comfy to drive. I paid $600 for mine, and I feel like I got a lot for my money, a real feeling of quality and a solid expensive car. The sort of car one is not embarrassed to give someone a ride in.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

- You can't be serious. This is a 20 year old hooptie!

How does being a 20 year old hoopty prevent the car from being fast? Obviously it does not. Anyway the older cars are much better than the newer ones.

General Comments:

When I got this car off of my mother-in-law who was 89 years old at the time last year, the car was in tip top shape. I got it for free! It had the orginal light blue metallic paint that still looked like new. The navy blue interior looked absolutely marvelous. It even had all 4 of its original factory wire wheel covers that looked like brand new, that were still on the car!

Basically, my mother-in-law kept the car in the heated garage at all times. She never, ever drove it during the winter months. Yes, the car was properly maintained to perfection.

When I got it, it was recently inspected, all of the fluids were changed, and all of the tires were checked as well. All 4 of the tires were like a year old at the time. Now that I have it, the same rule applies as to how the car will be kept. It will always be garage kept all of its life with me and my wife.

The car has all of the power buttons in it. The seats are ever so comfy! The trunk? Just big.

We recently took my mother-in-law out to dinner for her 90th birthday in the car that she loved big time. Her jaw dropped when she saw how beautifully kept the car still is. And yes, the car runs just like it did back when my mother-in-law got it back in 1987.

Do we plan on getting rid of the car? Absolutely no way in the world would we even think of doing so. And no way will our kids drive the car. It's in our hands, and will always be maintained to perfection big time!

Yes we would highly recommend buying one of these cars. Just look for one that was treated like a queen like this one was. If so, you will have it for a good long time.
