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.....I always liked Oldsmobile better than Buick........

I own a 1957 Oldsmobile Rocket 88..... a 1980 Cutlass Supreme.....

They were great cars back in those days...........

I alway thought of Oldsmobile as a brand that had the power to go fast...

Oldsmobile was GM's test car for trying out new options on......

When they drop Oldsmobile I thought they should have drop Buick instead.....

Buick never had "OLD" in it's name like Oldsmobile did and why Buick was kepted.....go figure..

Now Buick is trying so hard to rise above being known as a "old folk's vehicle"....

Yes. 1976 Cutlass Supreme Brougham and 2001 Alero. The Cutlass was my very first car and one of favorites. The Alero was a lemon.

No, I never had one. But my aunt brought new a 1988 Olds 98 that she drove for 240,000 some miles. She just loved that car and drove it until not too long before she passed away earlier this year.
