1992 trofeo is on a distinguished road

I had a great conversation with a guy as I was leaving the keg tonight. We'll when I got to the trofeo there was a 45year old gentalmen with a 96-98 black eldorado ETC parked right next to me. His car was absulty mint. I dont know if he was just cracking jokes, but I seemed to want to trade cars because they made tons and tons of eldorados from 92-02, but they only made a few thousand trofeos 90-92. I know If I put some money into paint, and body work someday my car might be worth somthing big, but for now I feel like I should have taken him up on his offer. I didnt though because my olds has family roots.

"People that think they have money buy cadillacs, people that know they have money buy oldsmobiles"

(If you dont understand i'll explain it later)

Well, I have to gives props for the Oldsmobile now. They were a worthy car...often missunderstood by the younger generation. Hold on to your cars, Olds owners! They will be worth something in a few years.

P.*. I have changed my sig in honor of the Marque.

With Numbers and Letters the likelyhood that a foreign language faux pau will happen is slim to none.
That, combined with the fact that after 60 or so years, there just really aren't many stylish names left
