1969 Oldsmobile Ninety-EightReview
Wish I Had Never Sold It — This car on the outside was a little rough, which is to be expected from a 30+ year old car(when I owned it). But it came equipped with the infamous 455 Oldsmobile rocket motor that put out 350 HP and 510 lbs. of torque. It was ridiculously fast for a car that heavy. It was extremely comfortable and rode like a dream.
Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
Pros: Fast, comfortable and it leaves an impression
Cons: Got around 9 miles to the gallon when you ran it hard
