Creepy Ride. — body to chassis mounts were going bad and ride felt like meat on a piece of white bread. could to 85 easy but distrusted the 35 year old moving parts on the front end and the body mounts. One could have done an off frame resoration and still end up with a second rate ride. Windows would howl and needed new rubber. Killer pushbutton TUBE am radio!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Oldsmobile Delta 88 1970 By Mario

Big car, hard on gas but had lots of power. It was ok to take off from a dead stop but at around 50km/hrs it had lots of juice. With a 455 rocket engine it was great on the highway and it had a 100 ... Read More
