The Olds as it looked back in yr. 2000
This was the first brand new car that I bought at a dealership. I took delivery on December 7, 1989, and paid around $20,000, which at the time seemed like a lot of money, especially since I had none. I swore I would never pay that much for a car ever again. Ten years later, I spent $32,000 on a 1999 Nissan Maxima SE. I still have the old Olds and it runs as good as it did when it was new. I couldn't justify parting with something that was so reliable - more than most people I've met. Nothing seriously mechanical ever breaks on it. It is bulletproof - 108,000 miles as of February 2000 and still going. Except for some serious redesign work I did on the sound system (twice) the car is as bone stock as it was ten years ago. I wish I had taken some pictures of it when it was new, but I don't think cameras had been invented yet.
Update: July 13, 2002. With 131,828 miles on it, the car has been sold!
