Totally new ride system. A new look to go with it. Changing the way a car looks is relatively easy. Changing the way it performs is something else again. But that's precisely what Oldsmobile engineers have done with the Delta 88. The new Delta 88 features Olds'exclusive "G-Ride System." A combination of engineering advances in chassis, suspension, steering, and sound insulation. Advances such as Supershocks, with f ric-tion-reducingTeflon-coated pistons for smoother, more predictable performance. An improved steering linkage that gives better straight-line stability. A stabilizer bar to reduce pitch and sway. Springs designed for a consistently more comfortable ride. It sounds very technical, but it works out very smoothly. So you notice the advantages of the "G-Ride" by the things you don't notice. Road noise. Vibrations. Jolts. Bottoming. If that's not enough to tempt you up to the big car world of Olds Delta 88, consider this: Rocket V8 performance; power steering; power brakes (discs in front) are all standard. But the ultimate clincher has to be the low price. Talk to your Oldsmobile dealer, you'll see what we mean. Oldsmobile And the whole beautiful package, costs a whole lot less than you think* ;
