It is Very Sad to see the OLDEST CAR Company in America die. Olds dates back to 1897. OLDSMOBILE has really neat rides over the years. Rocket88's, 442's, Cutlass Supremes, Hurst/Olds, Intrigues, Ninety Eights, W-30, etc... They were Top Sellers for Years and led with many innovations.

If You Owned an OLDSMOBILE you can just Say "YES"

*******OR*******

Tell Us about YOUR OLDS, which Model(s)/Years You owned (or maybe desired)

Please share your any stories you might have about OLDSMOBILES.

Yes, 2001 Olds Aurora. Bought it four months before they announced they were closing down Oldsmobile. Not happy about that.

I have owned many cars but I've had quite a few Oldsmobiles, up until the oldest car company in America ceased to produce vehicles of course, but fortunately most of them I had gave good service to me. There are some really nice ones I wish I could aquire though, I love the '68-'72 Cutlass/442/W30 cars.

1971 Olds Cutlass Supreme. 350, 4-barrel. 61,000 miles when I bought it for $2100 in 1975. Then, we inherited a 1996 Olds 88 that was a real piece crap. One malady after another struck that beast. 30+ mpg on trips, but the suspension was always having issues, A/C died, composite intake manifold croaked, leather interior rotted from sun exposure. Just not a good car.

NO - but my late father had a 1974 Delta 88. It was green and had a vinyl roof that was the exact color of Green Goddess salad dressing!
