The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Slow rocket to oblivion

The last Oldsmobile was built in April 2004, but that doesn't mean there aren't any left on the dealer lots: Automotive News (thanks to the Autoextremist) reports that in August, 93 Oldsmobiles were sold, bringing the total for the year to date to 1,634.

It occurs to me that this would be a really good time to buy an Olds, not only because of presumably humongous sales incentives, but the sheer delight of shocking friends and neighbors ("Where in God's name did you find that?"). Not that my budget would permit anything much above, um, a Plymouth.

That's amazing. I would've thought Ted Kennedy would have snapped them all up by now.

Or maybe his personal submarine fleet is already maxed out.
