Default Oldsmobile are history!

Just read it in the news that on thursday the last Oldsmobile will roll off the asembly line and in the history. American cars are slowly loosing the competition to the Imports, what a shame! :(

F*ck GM on that one! Olds is oldest marque in cars.
H*ll they were the first to make an actual CAR, everyone else was still retrofitting carriages when the Curved Dash Olds debuted.

Excellent car, and I am pleased to drive one. It was slated to go away much earlier, until Olds revamped the lineup with the Aurora. Following that the Intrigue and Alero helped shift the demographic.

I feel the lineup will return.

All in time to create a new history. Old and busted...hell no, Olds made great cars for over 100 years.

Fitting tribute

Great Cars! Great Tradition and Pride! Except the Aurora, WTF happened there!?!?!

Kidding Jim I wanted a Aurora before the Bonne because of that nice V8 and it looks really cool!

I've owned several Olds. I loved my Toronado and my Delta 88. Both were luxurious and cruised in style. It would be a shame to see such a classic line cease.

My sister-in-law has one. They are a nice ride. She has had no problems with hers in the three or four years she'* had it. It is real sad to see them go, not just because they are American cars, but the loss of jobs too.

I do hope they make a comeback....
