That's beautiful, clean and straight. Must be a joy on the autobahn. You could probably hide an Audi in the trunk.

Never been to Hannover. I was a kid in Berlin so I didn't have a choice as to where to go. Father was in the US Army there. City was beautiful but then again it was all new at the time being the late 60's.

I don't know what 'auch' means, enlighten me.

Welcome aboard. How about some pics? And I don't think anybody here is concerned about your English as much as your car!

Hey!!!

"Der Dicke trifft das "Biest"!!!

Bin dabei, eine Gruppe Olds-Besitzer zusammen zu bekommen!
Hab' bisher Kontakte nach Offenbach, Nuernberg, Schwarzwald u. Muenchen!
Ich war auf d. Dr-Mustang-Treffen in Oberhausen vor 2 Wochen, Pokal abgeraeumt! Warst Du vllcht da? Glaub' aber nicht- mir waere das schoene Auto bestimmt aufgefallen!
Wohin geht es am Wochenende? Naechstes Wochenende gehts nach Bitburg auf der 1/4-Meile!

Sorry guys- had to do that! Some of you already know I'm trying to get a loose Olds group together in good ol' Germany.
Welcome to CO!

Where can you look this stuff up? I've been wondering all the specs on my 98: how many were produced, weight, measurements etc.

I've had so many Oldsmobile's back in the day that I remember the dimensions!

Both 88's and 98's are 80" wide!

I'll dig up some links where you can get all the information...

My best to you,

Sorry to disallusion you! Just a Ami who speaks German!

If you're interested, I can email craftsman22 (or you can look him up in the member listing). He's making up a list of German Olds users!
