I bought this car from a neighbor who does minor fix ups and sells them. I put about $300 to get it running safely. The car sat for about a year not running. I'm glad I dropped a few bucks into it. It's great on gas, still has its horsepower, is comfortable to drive and doesn't use up fluids even with 183,000 miles.
I like the way the interior is laid out. the seats are comfortable and the drive is smooth. The handling is perfect. It's a simple car, nothing fancy but fun and reliable.
I would change the the engine size a 6 cylinder, a wider wheel base and raise the seats up. I would also make minor maintenance easier, like bulb replacement. Too bad Olds isn't around anymore. This car with some minor changes could have been great.
