Default anybody know anything...

... about Oldsmobile 88'*. My mom'* 92 Olds 88 Royale, just got plowed into from the rear while my brother was driving. His neck and back are pretty sore and hurt pretty good, but otherwise I think he is ok. he'* going to get checked out at the hospital. The car is totalled though. Does anybody know if there are any parts worth salvaging that could be used onmy Buick GS? Like front brake rotors, calipers etc.??/ The engine and tranny are fine and run strong.

didn't they come with the 12" front rotors which is what some swap onto the GTP'* and GS??

That motor and trans will sell like no ones buisness.....I would part that out for sure. Now as far as interchangability, I can't help you there. Sorry.

I can't think of anything that would work on your GS.

Part out the front.

I'll keep you guys posted. It all depends on what my mom wants to do with it. The car has a little over 100k, I wanna say maybe 110k(not 100% sure). It'* never been abused while in my family and my parents bought it off of an Elderly man who bought it new, so...

Does the Bonneville have 12" front rotors?

I think you're right, because the Park Aves were a much heavier car than the Bonneville if I remember correctly?

Hmm...I don't think so. 3800s and trannys to match are a dime a dozen.
