1980 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight Review

By Far The Worst Handling Car I Haver Had. — The car's handling was basically non-existent. When you turned the steering wheel clockwise, the car made a right turn. Like an ocean liner. No sportiness whatsoever. On straightaways the car was great. Smooth, quiet, fast. It just hated curves of any radius.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: If you love design of the late 70s.

Cons: If you like driving.

Propane Oldsmobile — For that reason, it was economical. Had to redo the propane distributor once or twice, but solid body, A/C, the whole 9-yards.

Pros: Propane power

Cons: Propane made it more like a small V6
