Default Who owns the Olds Trofeo?

There'* a '92 Olds Trofeo in the paper with only 59k on her, unfortunately with "No A/C", but they say the rest is great, garaged, new tires, for $2800. I want to ask the guy who has the Trofeo if he likes his, hehe Also, does the Trofeo have air shocks? Me no likey air shocks...

Did that paragraph make sense? Anyways, Opinions welcome and appreciated

yup. They have the air shocks. The Trofeo'* have more options than any other GM car of that time. (even more than cadillac it seems like.) But because of their plethora of electronics on them, they can be a nightmare if electrical problems arise.

My father had a Oldsmobile Toronado Trofeo. It was 1992 also It was a great car but some of the parts are expensive. My dad had to replace the cluster and he wasn't to happy about. I'm not knocking the car though its a great ride and with 4 wheel disc brakes makes for a pretty good performer.

I'd hit it

Basically if you don't and this one gets away...

A whole BC group is gonna come knock on your door...

Getting banished to the Ricer Club would be better than what the BC'ers are gonna do to you.

My Dad used to have a Trofeo. Not sure what year, but it was the one with most of the controls on the TV screen in the dash. It had alot of problems and came very close to being considered a "lemon" by IL state law.
