Was pulling up to an AutoZone the other day when I parked next to an Olds Intrigue. As I got closer, I saw an emblem on the trunk lid that I hadn't seen on an Olds before. Got out and took a closer look, and it said: "Final 500". My gues is that this was one of the 500 last Oldsmobiles ever built. is that correct, Olds lovers?
If so, someone needs to get this car away from this lady. She's got a little piece of automotive history, and she's driving the wheels off of it. The car was literally splattered with bird droppings too. Very sad.
maybe that 'Final 500' badge stands for something else Rich,
like perhaps that particular vehicle is on its last 500 miles before implosion?
Actually, other than being Pig Dirty, the car wasn't in bad shape; no dents or dings. This is right about the time that car should be saved. A year from now, it'll probably be past the point of no return.
Thats the series JL needs to produce! (i know i've mentioned it a couple, few, ok ALOT).
For the last 5 cars that Oldsmobile produced (Alero, Intrigue, Bravada, Aurora, and Silhoutte) the last 500 cars they built had special badging on the outside of the car, along with a special seats that designated the car as being one of the "Final 500". It also had its own special paint color.
Not sure how many actually made it to the road, but i do know only 499 of each did at the most (the very last one of each model are now owned by different museums)
Also, mark your calander! April 29th, 2007 is the anniversary of Oldsmobiles final and last car produced which was an Alero and rolled out of the Lansing plant in 2004...
And to quote my sticker on the back of my toronado...
