The '89 Olds — Well i only had it for a month or so, but for that time it was a very fun car to own. As far as performance goes, i have one word for it: boat. 3800 Engine wasn't bad and had a lot of torque, but mpgs were nothing to write home about. The exterior was very clean with classic american sedan lines, and inside the crushed velour was like a couch. With 180k miles it had to go sometime, and like many 80's american cars, the frame rusted out. But for the month that i had it, i loved it mainly because it had so much character.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: interior space and comfort, appearance, old-car character

Cons: rust, gas mileage, handling

Granny Car — The 3.8L V6 makes this granny car's acceleration amazing considering what the car looks like which is somewhat ugly. The car was very surprising. The most comfortable seats i have ever sat in. Braking power is avg.The handling of a boat. Which is what this car is a metal boat.However the best cruising car i have ever driven just sit back and let the car drive you. At 28mph this car is a good gas saver, but push the peddle down and this front wheel car can actually burn out in to second gear. It does have a terrible tranny but a good car u can work on.

Pros: Great acceleration for a granny car. Great seats. 3.8 V6  

Cons: Tranny and handling

Luxary At A Fair Price — I had a Royale Broughm trim, and it had these awesome plush seats. It was my first car and was a steal at $800. It had the old reliable GM 3800 and it ran forever before my brother finally totalled ol' Agnes which was the name the original owner gave it. It was a pimp mobile

Pros: Ride, seats, styling, interior finish

Cons: MPG wasnt great, acceleration was poor, various electrical problems
