YAK Car Pic of the Day

Other than the Toronado, this 1980 Oldmobile 98 Regency sedan was the most expensive car in the lineup back in the day. Not hard to see why when you check out the interior shot below (from the brochure). This looks better than some of the living rooms I’ve been in over the years. There was also a confusingly-named 98 Luxury Sedan which was the cheapest 98 for 1980. And don’t get me started on some of the other Olds names from the beginning of that decade, like the Brougham, the Supreme, and the Supreme Brougham. Not to mention the Salon and the Royale. Hard to tell the pecking order, but I’ll at least say that they were more interesting sounding than today’s unimagintive jumble of numbers and letters which masquerade as model names. The black Regency was seen a few weeks back during a Cruise Night at the Texas Roadhouse in Tonawanda.
