Default Why hello there.

Hello GM Forum,

My name is Ryan and I'm a hardcore Mopar/Dodge nut with a particular weakness for the 1996-1999 Oldsmobile Eighty Eight and LSS.

My 1999 Olds Eighty Eight LS is my winter warrior, and with 174k miles on the body and tranny (its on its second 3800) it has served me quite well.
Recently, the car was hit and was ruled totaled yesterday.
I'm continuing to drive it, but I don't think it is long for this world, as its finally getting to the point where paying to have it fixed wouldn't be worth it.
My insurance company has agreed to give me a pretty nice sum for it, so I'm in the market for another one, which brought me to your wonderful forum.

You won't see me around as the most active member ever, but I still wanted to say hello.

Ah-ha, forgot to post where I live!
Central MA, right near Worcester, but I'm willing to drive/fly/walk to anywhere to get the right car.
