So much information and fantastic pictures showing Olds through out the years.
The price was right and arrived within two days. I will definitely be purchasing from this seller again.
I am disappointed the Authors Forgot to Mention that The so-called Recession of the 80's was brought on by one-time Carter Admin NOT Reagan and apparently there is a pro-Union blame the Japanese Market(to some extent yes)slant,as well as FDR slant(alot of people to this day are stubborn to the Harm FDR and Progressives have done)other than that,It is perhaps the only OLDS Official history and sadly the Last perhaps. My Father had a 79' Cutlass Supreme,and family had a pair of Olds Cutlass Sierra and a 87' Buick Century.Once GM diversify itself of government intervention,get rid of unions and stick to building Great Performance cars not Hybrids for tree huggers then it will be a Great Corporation Again.Would be nice to bring Back Pontiac,the Firebird/Trans Am and Oldsmobile.I guess I am a dreamer.
