What is it?


1995 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme SL with the 3.1L six in it. It has 130K miles on it, but the thing has been babied. The guy we bought it from has kept track of everything he has ever done to it - oil changes, spark plugs, transmission work, everything. He even wrote down everytime he put friggen' gas in it and the mileage. Its insane.

It is in beautiful condition too. It rides so nice for its age and it definitly hugs the road surprisingly well. The tranny shifts smoother than my parent's cars that are years younger. The only thing really wrong with it is that there is some kind of noise coming from the engine. We think its the piston hitting against the cylinder/sleeve because these cars are known for that. It goes away in higher revs, almost like it aligns itself. You can't hear it when driving it, and if it grows to be a problem, an engine swap can be done for less than 1K. I'm just hoping for a couple years out of it.

The interior is amazing. Its a dark grey leather; it looks pretty good. It has clearly been cared for, with only a single small tear in the side of the driver's seat. It does need new front speakers and I'll probably just end up putting in some kind of mid-end system anyways. The paint is beautiful, there is a fair dent in the area behind the rear tire on the drivers side and two very small areas of rust that we'll end up touching up to keep it from spreading.

All in all, a great buy (knock on wood). Its a lot of car for what we paid.

You're trying to make 357 look bad, but you're only making yourself look worse. Try to help yourself out and not troll on 357 so much.

Rod knock and/or piston slap is not good lol. But that's damn cheap.

Yeah, I put a ton of miles on my Cavalier, and I never had any trouble with it. Mine was a '97 with the Quad-4, and I didn't think it was "very very underpowered". It wasn't a race car, but it was supposed to have 150 HP, which would have been comparable to other vehicles in it's class at that time.

Piston slap. Thats it. I couldn't think of the 'slap' part for anything when I was trying to type it... lol.

Yeah, it isn't. But right now its not too obnoxious and were buying this the intention of it hopefully lasting me 2 or 3 years. Everything else is beautiful on it, and if we really wanted to we could just pay a visit to the junkyard and I'll still have spend less than $2000 on it provided nothing else goes seriously wrong.
