My 66 Delta coupe is factory 4spd and Sfire engine optioned....pretty rare IMO. Had it at a cruise nite and a guy comes up and says "I got one just like this". I said "really?". He says yep, only mine is a 65, and its a Dynamic, and its a 4 door and it has a 2 bbl carb and automatic trans.

I run my advance up till it pings and then back it up a little. Some stations have premium that pings. I avoid those ...

Owning a 1964 ninety-eight gets a lot of big car jokes from people who everybody who knows what it is. I'd have to say my favorite so far is when my friend told me I should put a speedometer that reads in knots since it's such a ship.

My favorate was when some ricer was looking under the hood of my
1970 LS-6 Chevelle and ask if it was front wheel or all wheel drive.

And it's always fun when I'm cruising in the Cutlass and the kids ask me to
"hop it" or "slam it" like I have hydrolics .

Had a good one this year. Guy is checking out my car, looks at me "Olds?" "Yep". "It's nice but I'm more of a big car fan, I just happen to love Tornado's" So I said "Then you should move to Kansas." He didn't get it.

Oh if I had a dollar for the canadian line or the fact they get confused.I have info from the net and explain it several times when i go to a show.I had people that run a show put delta on the window card though it is a delmont.

I have to say that is the funniest thing said about my car,I had a guy I know well see my car and I kid you not he goes nice lincoln

Amen to that! If it really comes down to it, I'll just run over their ricey-*** mitsubishi, throw it in the trunk of my 98, then turn it in at the grocery store deposit for a nickel!

3 month ago we`ve been on a classic car meeting.It was an open meeting as there where Lambos,Mercedes,Ford,Fiat,VW..........Before we startet to a round trip all the cars passed something like a bridge with a platform.One after the other stopped there and the promoter told something about the vehikles.He knew a bit from all the 200 classics,and got no problems with 63 T-Bird,55 Cadillac and other Vintage US-Cars.When Claudia stopped in her 63 F85 he was perplexed.After watching the Olds a while he reached the microphon to Claudia and pleased her to tell everybody about that car.After the round trip some old Porsche and Mercedes owners stood around us and discussed the Olds worth.They appreciated the value from 50.000-80.000$ Earnestly!!!
Those guys spend every weekend on meetings and have never seen such a car before Rare and nice means to them it has to be very expensive.
Now we where perplexed and didn`t try to sell our beloved Olds

Yeah....

It happened w/ my wife's '92 Camaro Z28 'vert, but I think it still fits:

We're driving by kinda slow on a residential street, 2 young kids ('bout 10-11 yrs) scope the car out. One to the other: "Boah (means WOW or like that!) a Viper!!!

Every time we are at a car show with the Silver Bullet, there's always someone that comes by and says, "Did they really make a S/W verision of the H/O"? The best was at the annual Oldsmar car show (Florida) several years ago, just after finishing the paint scheme. Guy walks up w/his family, all knowing, and I overhear, "wow! This is one bada-- car! Very rare! They only made just a few station wagon Hurst Oldsmobile's. The rest of them were hardtops or convertibles". Once again, trying to impess with his (non) knowledge.

I really like this thread. I had done the body on my car dark green with the white stripes. It was the first ride in the new color. I was at the gas station, and this guy tells me know's the guy who owned the car before me? I said I have had the car for ten years, and bought it in London Ontario, and it was a different color green until last week. Well, this guys starts arguing with me that I am wrong, and that this was his buddies car...anyway, he got mad and pedaled away on his bike. Another time at a light a rice burner with a gopher hole exhaust lines up and starts revving his 4 banger. The light turns green, and he takes off. I let him get a bit ahead of me, then give it some gas...I passed him, and at the next light he asks....Dude does that thing have a chip? I said no...There called secondaries. He face was blank...

I love the double takes I get in my Diesel 98. I come around the corner in my neighborhood a few weeks ago and some hiphop idiots playing basketball next to a KIA or something just stared at me. I may not be able to smoke them, but I can pull stumps and beat that car in a fight. lol

No he did'nt. We actually pulled into the parking lot, and showed him a carb, and the secondaries....He would not remember the 8 track either. I remember the cassette tape player converter you stuck in the 8 track...

This is not Olds related, but I was at a cruise night this past summer. A gentleman had his Chevelle SS 454 for sale. I caught part of the conversation with a prospective buyer, it went like this...(buyer) What kind of mileage does it get? (Seller) I don't know, the gauge hits empty, I fill it with premium...(Buyer) So, you have no idea what kind of mileage it gets in the city or on the highway? How can I make an informed decision if you don't even know what kind of mileage this gets??? (seller) Look, it probably gets 7-8 mpg city. 10-12 higway...you do not buy these cars for gas mileage. You buy them because you like them, they remind you of your youth, or because you want to shred tires. If you want mileage, buy a Frickin Prius.

I had to leave, I was starting to laugh to hard....Great thread!

My Cutlass doesn't get great mileage, with these cars you don't have to check mileage, you can tell if they are running well by observing the motors sound, smell of the exhaust, pulling a plug once in a while etc. No matter how well I keep it tuned it just isn't going to get good mileage. Yet these old gas guzzlers are cheaper to drive to work than to take public transportation. I don't drive to work but it costs me about 11 bucks a day for a 12 mile train ride into Boston and T parking. The Cutlass stays in my garrage during the work week.

I get a lot of "what is that" people know its not a chevelle, and not a gto- so they ask.

A few years back when i had my 68 delmont 88 convertible i was sitting at a stoplight with the top down and this guy pulls up and says hey man- i can paint that thing and make it look sweet- $400 is all it would cost. I said something along the lines of when it gets painted it will be a lot more than a $400 job- i guess he took it as an insult to his work, as he goes- That thing is just a jalopey anyway and roared off. its the only time in my life that anyone has actually used the word "Jalopy" to me in a real conversation!

LOL

I had a couple kids walk over to my 70 442 while I was at an auto parts store, and the first thing one of them said was, "Man, these things are HUGE!" They were driving a Honda Civic, lowered, black with blue wheels. Wished my friend and I would have brought his 1970 Olds 98, now THAT"S huge, but a 70 442 big? I guess to them it was.

Nice kids though, they seemed to enjoy seeing such an "antique". Then one of them asked me if I was the original owner. Ummm....I was 10 years old back in 1970, so I guess I'm older than I look! That's ok though, when I was 17 years old (like they were), anyone over 40 looked "old" to me, and I couldn't tell what age group they were in.

Last summer my fiance and I went to a drive-in (yes there are still a few around) and I heard some guy tell his wife (confidently, mind you) "oh, that's a Monte Carlo". We were in one of my Ninety Eight's. How could anybody really mistake a Ninety Eight for a Monte??

Unhappy A Camaro?!?!?!???

I got one last month that was downright sad.

When at the lake driving Lady, I stopped at sonic and was waiting on a burger and fries. Chunky 20 year old was cleaning the sidewalk and he asked "is that a Camaro?"

Now I do like Camaros, but they are SO SO different looking - smaller, too!
He said his folks had an old Ford pickup and a Mustang, so he must not have known a thing about old GM cars. Poor kid...

...sigh...

Probably the best, was a guy who asked me to raise the hood so he could look at the motor. He says, "Wow"... looks around a little more, then states, "I see you even have a fan in it."

Driving the car home from picking it up, we're at a gas station in Jersey...kid comes up to pump my gas (What the hell Jersey) and says "you had this thing since it was new?" I was 17 at the time. It was so dumb I thought it was a joke....until...

...he comes back 10 seconds later...'hey man, do you know you don't have a gas tank?" Didn't know my gas cap was under the plate. He didn't elaborate on how he thought it drove without gas.

I've seen a few other makes mentioned so I'll throw this in. We had just bought a 78 Trans Am for my wife and I was taking my son and some of his friends for a drive in it. I turned around in a grocery store parking lot and as I was going down one of the isles, a couple of boys about 10 or stopped in their tracks and watched as we drove passed. As we passed them, one of the boys yelled "Sweet Corvette !!". We all busted out laughing. I said, Hey, at least he's into cars.....


By the way 442much, who is the cutie in your sig pic?

In the middle of stripping my car, '68 Cutlass S, down for paint, they 4 year boy who lives next door was riding his bike and stopped to tell me that "My daddy has a new car and it does not have any scratches on it." He also asked me "why are you fixing it, just get a new one." Another one was a gas jockey who after 5 minutes of my friends and I laughing at him walking around and around the car, had to ask were te gas cap was. Working to pumps "for two years" he had never seen one behind the plate, "was it custom?" The most recent one was a young (18-21) tuner kid at the paint shop who asked me if my Cutlass S had a 4 or a 6.
