Mark Stevens 1997 LSS

Mom's car in the front yard

When mom decided to get a new car we looked at a lot of different makes but eventually came back to Oldsmobile. It has the visibility we needed and the entry / exit was better than most large cars too. Of course I leaned her towards the LSS as it was my favorite in the GM category. We've had the car a few years now and haven't regretted the decision. Not to many LSS's on the road and I love how the color changes from Green to Blue as you walk around it.  When Mom passed on in 2003, I inherited the car and now it is my daily driver.

This photo was taken in the same location that my '67 was (see my '67's page) 24 years ago.  They have since made a park there.

Her old Olds 98 went to a good home though (my brother Wayne).  It seems to me that we tend to recycle our Oldsmobile's.
