Default Free 3800-Powered Ride Pics -- 94 Olds Royale 88

Got this ride last week for free from my wife'* sister. Doesn't run too well (working on that...you can read all about it in the "Other H Body" Forum). Was snapping pics of the 99 so I took a few of the 94 Olds too...















Another nice crack:


Missing emblem:


Couldn't pass up the deal. It'* definitely a beater, but it'll help keep miles off the 99 if I ever get it running right!

Mines been flawless, not needed to go to the shop other than for installing a cat. Had it a year 18,000 miles

I really wish the Bonneville had a similar back to that. Maybe a sportier light design.

88'* are cool. Kind of like an alternate universe of Bonnevilles. Good luck

Thanks for the compliments.

It really needs a bath then it would look a lot better. There'* a long list of things that need to be fixed on it...major ones are getting it running right and replacing all the struts. It'* like driving a sailboat down the road! It'* so floaty and tough to keep on the road!!

The interior is very comfortable. I actually prefer it to the Bonneville. The bench seat really opens up the front seating area.

Once it'* running right it'll be a true sleeper!

Its not in that bad of shape for having all of the miles it does... Looks like a little work may cause it to hang around the other H body
