Ahh, autocross. A safe way for enthusiasts to take to the track, or even parking lot, and clock their best times in nearly any car depending on the standards your local organization goes by. We’re not entirely sure where a 1990s era Oldsmobile 88 falls, but someone decided to humor the driver and let him rip.
The strangest part about this video? The Oldsmobile 88 doesn’t do half bad. Clean lines are present throughout the entire lap, although those tires sounds very upset at the driver’s antics. For a car that was designed for cloud-like front-wheel drive feel and was placed with a ho-hum 3800 V6, on a modern-day meme scale, we give this driver a “Not Bad Obama Face.”
Surely if our beloved machines could talk, this Olds has to be screaming “I’m really a 442, I am!” Forgetting about the four-barrel, four-on-the-floor, dual exhaust, this Oldsmobile 88 says understeer be damned.
Props to this guy putting this maroon Oldsmobile 88 in the mind frame of Oldsmobile 442. Check out the video for yourself right down below.
