Disappeared in the aftermath of GM restructure
The original Oldsmobiles were built and marketed by R E Olds from 1897. After General Motors bought out the original company the brand was slotted in between Chevrolet/Pontiac at the lower end and Buick/Cadillac at the upper end. It was thus the middleof General Motor’s offering.Chip ‘n Dip Stalletjie
Over 35 million Oldsmobiles were produced and they have cars in every conceivable class from Antique, through Vintage, Veteran and Classic.
Despite the success of Oldsmobile, particularly in the 1990’s declining sales and profits in General Motors brought about the end of the marque in April 2004, after a four year closeout program.
The final production run was of 500 Oldsmobile Alero. According to Wikipedia “The Alero’s production ended with a special Final 500 Edition. These last 500 Aleros featured custom logos inspired by vintage Oldsmobile logos, dark cherry metallic paint, and a plate featuring the car’s number out of 500. The final Alero Final 500 Edition (#500 of 500), a GLS 4-door, also happened to be the final Oldsmobile ever built, and was signed under its hood by the employees of the General Motors Lansing plant. The final car left the Lansing Assembly Plant on April 29, 2004 and was then given to the R.E. Olds Transportation Museum”.
The Westrand Car Show is a Classic Car Show. TO QUALIFY FOR ENTRANCE TO A COMPETITIVE CLASS, VEHICLES MUST HAVE BEEN BUILT OR REGISTERED FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 1999 OR EARLIER. Only the first 180 QUALIFYING vehicles will receive a commemorative medallion. Any newer vehicle is welcome to be entered as a “non-competitive vehicle” and to be placed on show just because of “the spirit of motoring” and the desire to share the joy that your wheels bring you, with all of the rest of us.
