Smokey Bandit: 1978 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight Regency

I hate to sound like yet another hater in the audience…but I’m just gonna say that I REALLY find it incredible to believe that a 1978 Oldsmobile with the original Diesel 350 cubic inch V8 is still on the road…particularly given the fact that the owner seems to think the car is called a “Recency?”  Find this 1978 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight Regency offered for $4,975 in Louisville, KY via craigslist.


From the seller:

I have a 100% original, and gorgeous Oldsmobile 98 Recency for sale. It has the super rare, factory V8 diesel engine and runs and drives like a dream! Loaded with power options and all books and records in the glove box since new. Possible trades. If you have any questions, CALL
