198_ Oldsmobile Delta 88 Royale

This Oldsmobile Delta 88 was parked in the neighborhood the other day. I love the opera lamps integrated into the B-pillars. (Does anyone know if those are manually controlled or tied to the headlights?) The only apparent damage is the chrome panel missing from just behind the front wheel well, and the front bumper appears to be missing a portion of the rub strip. The most amazing part about it was that the driver was a young guy, maybe 18 or 19 years old and he looked genuinely proud. He didn’t stop turning around to admire it until he was at the house, up the street.
