Watze, welcome to our site. I think your Oldsmobile is really nice looking. Oldsmobile made three models of the Delta 88 in 1968, the 2 door Holiday hardtop, the 4 door Holiday hardtop and the 4 door Town Sedan. Oldsmobile produced 33,689, the most of any of the three, so it would not be rare comparatively to the other two models but it is rare because it is an Oldsmobile and it is in Holland and probably the only one!

By the way, those wheels look really nice. Do you know what kind they are?

Those look like late model Chevy Caprice rims (bath tub body). Looks good!
