Well, not all of them were bad cars. I mean my 1988 Delta 88 Royale wasn't the fastest car, but the Buick 3800 V6 was hard to kill. I can't tell if people rag on it because they actually miss it, or it was actually that bad. My dad owned a dark Gold 1969 Cutlass 442 with a swapped 455 right before I was born. It was a hand me down from my great grandfather who was heavily into Street racing back in the 1950s and the rockabilly stuff. Can't forget about the 1949 Oldsmobile 88 with a rocket V8. I wouldn't dismiss this company as anything negative, but they were General Motors experimental vehicles. They came with some of the latest tech at the time. The advertisement was kind of tame for what it was, but I'm 23 years old, and noticed the car guys my age like the Older stuff. I can't find a reason to dislike Oldsmobile considering that my family loved those cars. Everytime I go to talk to the people of my generation, we definitely like Pontiacs, Buicks, and Oldsmobile cars. They are the most affordable classic cars on the market right now to us.
