I had a 1996 olds 88 LSS.

Interior : Nice clean, not as many buttons like on the bonneville. but ok, Don't forget the 2 DIN cd/tape player with concert sound 3 .
Exterior : To eachy his own but I think the Oldsmobile gives you more of a status symbol then the bonneville.
Handling : Handles like a boat . Lots of body roll compared to the bonneville.
Engine : 3800 series 2, 205hp 230 LBft .

I have a */C one obviously. I drive like a bat atta hell and have put on 18K of worry free driving. Not one repair, which is a first for my family to go over a year without a single repair being done. Mine had the same identical miles as the one you're looking at when I bought it. Does it have a power moonroof?

The only */C one I can find in the country for sale now. 97' with only 55K miles but a stiff $11,000 price tag.

Yeah, I rode on Oldsman'* Olds! It was a great big luxurious boat! A great car that was not built to take corners though. Other than that a true excellent car! I loved that car because it made my brother in law realize how much of an econo car his 1998 Mazda 626 was. "What your car tells you that you are low on washer fluid?!!!

I don't know about you but my LSS feels like half its size. But then again coming from a guy that learned how to drive in an 89' Crown Vic. It deff accelerates like a smaller sportier car.

What about that white one you have? If it'* not possible (I didn't really read your siggy). I suggest a Bonneville SE or SSE. Maybe a GP GT. Depends on what you're really looking for.
