1996 98 Regency Elite. I bought it on August 3rd of this year to replace my 1994 98 Regency that had too much rot to continue to drive. I still have the '94 for parts. The engine is different as is the interior pattern but everything else is pretty much the same. It's a one owner car, the original owner bought it in Florida (Vero Beach) and moved back to New Jersey in 2006 so the car spent most of it's time down south and has no rust. It was hit in the driver's door which has been replaced and a few body panels have been painted. The former owner turned 79 years old this year and donated it to charity in June. The dealership I bought it from donates a portion of the proceeds from their sales to cancer charities. I wouldn't call it a "show car" but it's in extremely good condition for it's age. I found it on AutoTrader.com. Here's a link to the listing that the dealer still has active:
1996 Oldsmobile 98 Regency Elite
Here's a photo I took today, sorry for the not so good quality, I think the camera lens got foggy because the humidity here is near 100% with the hurricane coming.

I found a picture of the 1994:

Looks are deceiving, when you open the rear doors, the dogs legs are all rotted. The final blow was when the body mounts rotted where the sub-frame is bolted to the body. It runs great but has lots of little problems, the electric door locks never worked right, the gas door opens only about 40% of the time, the A/C blows hot air on the passenger no matter what.

My last Olds was a '97 CS sedan. I miss it. Had 186,000 miles on it when I had to scrap it a few years ago. I miss 315HP, 101mph trap speeds, and 166mph top speeds...

Last year I got the bug to own an Olds once again. I have had many.
'62 98 convertible, '67 Cutlass Supreme, '75 Cutlass Supreme, '84 Cutlass Ciera, 84 Cutlass Calais

Now several years later I found a '87 442 barn find with only 450 miles on the odometer. It is loaded with just about every option. 31 Dark Teal Blue Metallic with blue interior. It has a moon roof which I have not seen on many of these cars, most being T tops. Car now has about 1400 miles on it after driving it home from purchase and taking it to local car shows.
Thanks, Fred

74 salon

I used to own a 74 Cutlass Salon 2dr with a 455. I loved this car, but the salt in the Northeast finally took her away. The ride, power, and style of this car was fantastic!

We have a small collection of Olds. We recently aquired a 2002 Intrigue final 500, this was added to our Final 500 Aurora, Final 500 Bravada and Final 500 Silhouette collection. We also have a 1957 Olds 88 Golden Rocket and a 1995 Olds Cutlass Supreme convertable with 35,000 miles on her. Our daily drivers range from a 04 GTO and a 09 G8 GT to a 99 Cadillac STS.

I just bought a 1989 Ninety Eight Regency Brougham with only 97K miles. The interior is pristine and everything works. The paint job is checked and faded some, as expected, but a new paint job next spring will make this ride nearly new.
