    Nice '71 Olds 98 I spotted in McGregor, Iowa on 24 August. Surprisingly little rust for an Iowa car. Red/white, tan int. Second owner, 58K miles, 455, cloth, skirts, air. $3,500 NOT MINE!!! 563-873-2147. I'll load pics later today.

    The 71 was my favorite year. I think they nailed the styling of the front and rear of the car.

    What are you doing in Iowa? And I used to have a '70 Delta 88 Holiday coupe; I remember them as long, but the 98's were longer....

    1971 was a great looking year for GM across all model lines. Much like Ford in 67.

    Pretty nice, the price seems to be in line with the condition, and the next step would be an in-person inspection and test drive.

    Could you imagine what a three stage buff and some of that Finish First could do to that thing?
