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.

My Dad loved Oldsmobiles. I thought some of them were nicely different looking. Its too bad that they got burned down with their "Rocket Engine" advertising, when Chevy was furnishing Olds with "ordinary" Chevy engines.

Very first car was a 1942 Oldsmobile. Some of the letters fell off so it spelled OLD MOB. Model Rocket 88. Had my first date to the drive-in movies, car had sort of a hood over the winshield, looked boss.
