That is a sweet ride. My dad was thinkin of gettin one of those when they were brand new. And boy was i ever the devil on his shoulder for that car. At the time the nameplate still had quite a stigma though and i think that'* what ultimately led to him not getting one. We were all weird wanting an Olds when we were young.

FW Drive, 3800 V6 LN3, Auto Trans, FE3 Suspension, and of course the fake dual exhaust kit. Eldorado and Riv are almost identical or so Ive heard. Is that true?

Default Love the pics..

Loved the pics! Just a question, do you plan on painting your ground effects to match the car? The black is ok but I think the Medium Red Garnet all around would look killer on that machine. Is your air ride inop? I am not picking on you but looks like you got the sag going on in the back. I had a 1991 that started to sag on me, thank goodness the air ride worked still. The only thing I had to change out was the struts. I think I broke one of the air lines but a local junk yard had a toro and riviera I was able to get the lines from. Overall the car looks great!
