Oldsmobiles seen at the Springfield, Ohio Fall Swap Meet, 9/10/11

Not as many cars as last fall, either on the show field or in the car corral. Maybe because the weather was relatively cool and threatening rain? It wasn't a bad day at all.


1968 Cutlass in the swap meet area. $5,000 marked down from $6,500. Didn't look too bad. The hood was not open. 85,000-ish miles.











Absolutely gorgeous '77 98 Regency was already sold by the time I got there, and it's easy to see why. The car needed nothing, and it's from the first year of this body style, which I think makes it extra cool. At $4,950 for a 49,000 mile car, it cost just over 10 cents per mile!









'84 Hurst/Olds with a "rebuilt title." I wonder what that means about its history.









Nice-looking '75 Cutlass Supreme.

'83 Cutlass with a 454? motor.









'71 442. $20,000. I took a picture of the cowl tag if that helps anyone interested.

Sharp-looking '73 Omega. I've heard that no one collects these.







This '59 88 was in the show field area. It has a '69 455 under the hood, which was not open.









'72 Cutlass S 442 being shown by the car's original owner. That's pretty cool, I thought.

Here's two Oldsmobiles that were not in the car corral, not on the show field, and not in the swap meet area. They were just peoples' daily drivers.

I took the photos because I was thinking the newest Oldsmobiles are now 7 years old, and it's getting just a little less common now to see them on the road as every day cars. This trend will just continue.

Right now it seems that the most common Oldsmobiles I see are Silhouette minivans and Aleros, which were both made right up to the end or nearly to the end. Intrigues and final-generation 88's and 98's are less commonly seen, at least in my experience. I never see any of the last-generation Cutlasses, not that they were anything to shout about.


This Cutlass Calais was gorgeous. Late '80s, I believe.







This last-generation 88 (by then designated Eighty-Eight), which can be no newer than a '99 and which certainly was someone's daily driver, didn't look too bad at all.

Well, that one was certainly nice, and you wouldn't need to do much to it unless you wanted to change it around in any way. $11,000 seems high to me for any Omega, but who knows.
