1959 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight Review
Must Have Car. — not a fast car, more for crusing. it needed a whole new rebuild from ground up. gorgeous inside and out almost stock. gets pretty good gas milage with a 307 and easy to maintaine. you look real smooth driving in this car. its a true classic.
Primary Use: Family transportation
Pros: for all collectors who like old cars. this is a must have car it is sweet and all classic. cant be beat.
Cons: its a royal pain to park because its length.
