As anyone who has been reading this blog (or hell, spoken to me for more than a few minutes) can figure out, I have a soft spot for big Detroit land yachts. For a time, the Oldsmobile 98 reigned near the top of the list, and this big, bad, brown one tickles my fancy. It’s in fantastic condition, has a great (as far as vintage colors go) paint scheme, and features one of the great lost body styles – the pillarless four-door – for less than the price of a well-worn Taurus. Sure, it probably sucks down premium at a single-digit MPG pace, but just try not to smile as you roll all four windows down, hang your arm on the door, and float on down the highway with just a finger on the wheel.
