I hate to be the guy who is always criticizing random folks on the internet and their ability to create good car advertisements…but I’m afraid today I have to be. First, the reason I’m featuring this car is because Mr Mark commented that we’ve featured two Nova clones, first the Buick Apollo and then a Pontiac Ventura…so the logical thing to do is to post an Olds Omega…but they are hard to find and this next one has one of the saddest listings I’ve seen on eBay in a while. At least the price isn’t bonkers, but it is difficult to understand the condition of the Omega, so maybe the price IS bonkers. Find this 1976 Oldsmobile Omega SX offered for $5,750 buy-it-now in Gettysburg, PA via eBay.
I know what you’re thinking. You think that ten large is a skosh high to pay for a malaise era Olds Cutlass with a dirty engine bay…but hold on thought before you click away and start searching for used Fiats or something that doesn’t have the solid elegance, solid comfort, solid economy, or solid feeling of a vintage Olds Custlass Supreme Brougham. Plus, bad boy has a stick shift! Find this 1978 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme with 4-speed offered for $10,000 in Mira Mesa, CA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
If you own a car with the words “Official Pace Car 69th Indianapolis 500, May 26, 1985” on the doors you are going to have a few conversations that go like this. Random dude: Wow, so that car was used as the pace car at Indy…that’s wicked. You: Well…it is actually a commemorative version of […]
Oldsmobile was basically a dead brand standing when it launched the Alero just before everyone started hoarding water for Y2K. I can’t understand the mind of the person who went into an Oldsmoboat dealer in 2004 and ordered a new car…but I certainly appreciate that somebody went in and asked for the cheapest Olds he/she […]
The Oldsmobile corporate slogan in early 1986 was “There’s a special feel in an Oldsmobile”…which is ironic because that “special feel” wasn’t necessarily a good thing…but the corporate goons at Olds changed it in late 1986 to “Oldsmobile Quality. Feel it!”…also…funny in an ironic sorta way…but I have to admit that this Toronado has a […]
Few cars elicit that “wow, you never see these on the road anymore” like an 80s Oldsmobile, particularly something that wasn’t commonplace when new, like an Toronado Trofeo. The fourth and final generation Toronado was introduced in 1986 on a smaller unibody E-body platform shared with the Buick Riviera and Cadillac Eldorado. The switch to transverse […]
The original Oldsmobile Omega was a badge engineered version of the X-platform Chevrolet Nova and was sold in two generations 1973-1974 and 1975-1979. The Omega was more luxurious than the Nova it was based on, but it still rode on the same basic chassis and is just as wonderful or horrible depending on who you […]
What is the best color for an aged wagon from the malaise era? Brown, you say? Oh yes, brown is the correct answer and fitted with a 3rd row for your little monsters is the correct bonus answer. Find this 1980 Oldsmobile 88 Custom Cruiser offered for $5000 in Piqua, OH via craigslist. Tip from Jeff. […]
This next car won’t last long, because it is either a great deal or a big time scam. Or there are some serious issues that aren’t visible in the few photos provided by the seller…but you don’t see tri-carb powered big block muscle cars with manual gearboxes offered for this cheap. Find this 1966 Oldsmobile Cutlass […]
The original Porsche 911 has seen incredible price appreciation in the past decade, to the point that you’ve got to own a software company or be a rap star to own one of these things and the worst part is that even the cleanest museum quality version is dangerously slow in the modern world of […]
