I used this car all through college and it was wonderful. Great engine and power, loved the driver-oriented dash and all of the gauges. Plenty of room front and back and lots of features for a "compact" car. I had to replace the alternator (a common GM problem), the variable-effort steering rack, and the paint began to peel in odd ways - but for sitting outside and getting lots of use, I couldn't really complain.
Interior design. Excellent power with the 3300 V6. Absolutely love all of the gauges, the traditional Olds styling, and all of the "comfort" options that most cars didn't come with at this time.
