Generations Timeline, Specs and Pictures
The Oldsmobile 8 models is widely regarded as the grandfather of ulterior released muscle-cars thanks to a lucky combination of a light-weight chassis and a powerful Rocket V8 engine that had been designed for a larger, more powerful vehicle.
Daringly styled and very well equipped, the 88 enjoyed great popularity with young customers, having also been marketed as a dating-vehicle. The car also registered a significant number of Nascar victories which further increased demand for the 88. It was so well-received that it was the single highest-selling Odlsmobile model for nearly 25 years.
