New guy from Belgium

Recommended Posts

Hi, my name is Tim and for about a year or so I've been a proud owner of a 1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme that's been passed onto me. I live in Belgium and the car is in Poland for the moment but that's another matter.

I had always wanted an American car, maybe the Olds isn't what the average teenager dreams of but these cars are very rare in Europe so I'm happy with it.

The Oldsmobile make is almost unknown in these parts, so it adds to the curiosity factor. There are however problems with rarity - the first one being spare parts. The second issue is finding people with enough knowledge to be able to diagnose a problem or recommend any change - that is how I found this forum, I've already found a few useful posts. I hope that one day I'll be able to contribute to this forum to respond in kind.

Welcome, Friend. How many miles or kms ? How is she holding up ?

I don't actually know, probably around 150000km, or 93000miles. The odometer actually says ERROR so one of the first things I'm doing when I get the car closer to where I live will be tearing the dash apart and resoldering/recapping everything.

She's doing pretty good, Polish roads aren't the nicest to cars but thankfully it was an older gentleman who drove it and he stored it under a roof. The body rusted a little under the doors due to road salt but it has been welded since then.

I live in northeast USA (New England) and rust kills cars here too. Check your strut towers & brake/fuel lines for rust, those are other weak spots.

Thanks! I will check that as soon as possible. If all goes well, by the end of the summer I'll be able to finally start looking after the car.

We have pretty strict yearly checks for road worthiness in most of Europe and the car breezed through them so I have high hopes.
