Yes, that was a very nice car. I paid $800 for it, not running. It has about 125K on it when I bought it. The harmonic balancer went out on it and pretty much destroyed all the accessories since the woman kept driving it, until the bearing went out in the snout of the */c. It had been parked under a big cottonwood tree for about 5 years when I bought it. Replaced the accessories, new balancer, rebuilt */c and a nice thorough cleaning in and out and I had myself a nice driver. I had it about a year when it was stolen.

The sheriff said one of two things happened, it was either a gang initiation activity, or they stole it, moved drugs with it, and then burned it to cover up any evidence. There is a 'community' about 10 miles east of where I live that is nothing but gangs, meth labs, etc., and unfortunately it spilled over into my neighborhood. We have never had much crime here to speak of, and still don't. I guess I was just the unfortunate one.

The nice examples of Oldsmobiles are drying up I fear, and I may have to switch marques. I like Bonnevilles too so that may be my next option, especially if I can find a */c model. They seem to be more plentiful than */c Oldsmobiles.

Well, sorry to hear 'bout your car. It sounds like you should get the he** out of there! Yeah, it should be easier to find a */c Bonnie than a */c Olds.

early 90'* olds 98 touring sedans..UGH i miss mine

i had a dark gray with the blue interior leather and all...accept mine had alot more money into the motor and trans than most touring sedans have had LOL

yeah i had a 1990 i loved that thing...hit a deer at well over 100 mph...any less of a car and i wouldnt have walked away..

welcome to the club...if i was you i would look for a 92-99 SSEI..the 92-95 has the s1 L67 which your used to, where as 96-99 has the series 2 L67 both of which are great motors...and both of which have a unique style and the same feel as a olds..cause the delta'* and the bonnevilles are both H bodys
