Getting groceries this first weekend of May, I decided that the funkiness of this Oldsmobile grille might be suitable for a spotting post. 

Historically known for more elaborate grilles, this grille, with what look like two small semicircular air scoops, was featured on some full-size 88s (the jelly bean greenhouse ones, and this one had alloy wheels, too).  This design vocabulary also found its way onto the grilles of an Olds Bravada or two.

I always notice it because these vehicles aren't too common, and neither are Oldsmobiles that look like this.

There is a silver 88 with this front parked in a driveway down the street...hasn't moved in a while, has a flat tire.

Saw a very sharp gold/bronze '71 Riviera this afternoon, also saw a dark blue previous generation Ram 1500 4x4 pickup---short bed w/ regular cab---didn't realize they made that configuration in recent years...looked stubby.
