    Pete,

    Great article!

    It really brought back memories. I think I may have mentioned that my parents had several 98s when I was a kid in the '70s and '80s. There was a '98 Regency sedan, model year 1974, a '77 Regency coupe and (the last one) an '84 Regency coupe (chocolate brown metallic!).

    These were as you described: Incredibly roomy, spacious mobile lounges. I never got to drive the '74 (too young) but I did my hands on both the Regency coupes. These were two of the first cars I ever drove.

    The '77 had a 350 4 barrel and THM350. The '84 had the Olds 307 with electronic Q-jet. It was the last of the Oldsmobile V-8s.

    I remember flipping the air cleaner lid to let the carb breath - and make more noise! It had this banshee-like moan as the secondaries opened p. Not exactly quick, but when you are 17 a car like this can be all kinds of fun!
