My mom has a 92 88 Royale with 170k. She just replaced the LIM for the second time in its lifetime, but she REFUSES to get rid of it. Air doesn't work, Radio is a joke, but the motor runs like new and still delivers power right when you need it. Now, she only drives 10 - 15 miles a day, so I would say thats the main reason why she has so few problems. I have some affection for the car myself, but as a daily driver over a large distance I would hesitate.

Around here, most of the farmers have Olds, Buicks, Pontiacs - around 88-95 - because they are so reliable. They last forever, even taking all the farm driving as well, and all the constant trips into and around town.

They just take a beating very well.

:( It sold today for the asking price, $1500.

Looks like I am calling the guy with the '97 SSE with the dead trans, that I posted before.

Yeah if you guys understand that the most I ever had on my own to spend on a car was $600, then you know why I have always had POS cars. There isn't much around here for under $1000, only things there are, are rusty POS'* or cars that need work.

Lets just be glad that Pinky is going to get his $$$$ back from the other POS...

If the SSE is in ok shape it would be worth the time to put the trans you have in it... Being that you have one already
