Talking 92 Olds 88 - Born in the same month as I was

This is my ride, a 92 Oldsmobile 88 Royale. Her name is the Lusitania (after the British ocean liner that briefly the largest ship in the world but was sunk by German U-boats in 1915).

I inherited her from my older sister years ago and have since had some rough mechanical times ... But, as I think you'd all agree, it'* great to spend time with family and close friends to work on such mechanical problems.

Last summer (2012), my dad and I embarked on the project to paint the car. It was originally grey with bad sun damage on the hood and dents from my boss backing into me with her stupid SUV. Now it is orange ... and though it'* not the best looking car out there, it'* sure the brightest (and most obnoxious) one on campus.

Working on a stubborn starting problem right now but we'll figure it out soon! Long live the Lusitania!

Definately one of the more unique colors I've seen, but straight looking ride. Good luck with the starting problem.

Your insurance company should give you a discount on your premium because of the color.

You might be able to squeeze a couple of these on your doors.
