    Thought you've seen it all on ebay? Got an extra $ 150,000?

    Why are their 2002, 2003 and 2004 model years in the "Final 500"?

    It was the Final 500 of each model line as the brand was phased out.

    Can we please let Olds rest in peace? It's demise cut down on the re-badging.

    The models were not all discontinued together. The Intrigue was the first casualty, followed by the Aurora, then finally the Silhouette, Bravada and Alero.

    If Olds was still putting out some badass cars, this might have seemed like a good idea. As it is....

    Uhhh,

    I guess there's some collectablity here, but I would definitely not value it at $150,000!

    Figure the Aurora, if it's a V8, is worth about $18k. The Bravada and Intrigue maybe $15k each. Then the Alero is a good daily driver - say $10k. Then the five model year old dustbuster van??? I guess it could be a good buy at around $6999.

    So I see about $65,000 worth of vehicles, and unless an Oldsmobile museum in Lansing Michigan is interested, I'll bet that's about what the dealer will end up getting.

    It is sad to think that too many late Oldsmobiles became J.D. Byrider specials sold to people who do not give a damn about how their car looks. It is at least nice to see these cars in nice shape - clean floormats, unwrinkled leather, and mirror-like paint.

    It's hard to believe that in less than 20 years, Oldsmobile went from 2nd place in domestic car sales to this. Olds actually beat out Ford in car sales for a few years in the mid '80s...

    Sheesh.

    1972 Chevrolet Corvette (350 LT-1)

    Former: 1989 GMC Suburban R1500 (5.7 liter)
    1969 Buick Skylark Custom (Buick 350/2)
    1971 Buick Riviera (Buick 455)
    1971 Buick Electra 225 (Buick 455)

    Without Buick, GM never would have existed.

    I would buy the Aurora for 18k. I always liked those.

    If I were a collector I'd pay that. These aren't used cars gathered up as a collection, these are brand-new cars that you are pretty much guaranteed not to find again. As mundane as they may be, they are significant cars as they mark the end of America's oldest production car company. These cars aren't to be bought and driven, rather to be stored in remembrance.
