Well to each their own...I happen to think the styling is clean and understated by the standards of the day. No opera windows, tacked on louvers on the fenders like certain Chryslers, minimal moldings etc. I guess thats why I own one currently and have owned one before my current Delta....and plan to own another one someday...

There's something about a sporty, All-American big car that really hits the spot. Didn't Olds also have a few years around this era of Holiday 88 coupe models, with bucket seats and floor shift? Then there was the LeSabre T-Type, with a chrome/black trim package and those classic Buick Road Wheels. Odd that Pontiac (to my knowledge) didn't have a sport-trimmed Bonneville coupe after the successful downsizing of '77.

That is correct ocn....the Holiday 88 came only in coupe form and featured bucket seats, floor console and floor shift. Optional sunroof and sport mirrors. The funny thing is I think Pontiac was trying to make the Bonneville a luxury car during this time and no sport model was offered. The Delta 88 was more of car for all people IMO...base models for the new growing family, Royale models for those looking for most of the luxury features of a Ninety Eight for less money and the Holiday coupe for the the sporty crowd. The funny thing is most Holiday 88's during this time had roll down windows and basic trim on the door panels despite the fact this was a rare special package. One would think it would be fully loaded, but my Royale has more features than a typical Holiday does.

Not a big fan... between the blackout trim & boxy styling it is not a good looking car to me.

Great point... the Datsun is almost as ugly.

That blackout trim is horrific. The car looks

awful with all those stickers and lack of

chrome. Sorry to be a tick in the mud.

Now a nice, regular 2dr with all the chrome

I consider to be a cool car. Boxy styling &

monochromatic trim with no chrome looks

ugly as sin to me.
