1992 Oldsmobile Trofeo - Now, I'm the Sucker


I admit it - I like a lot of 80s and 90s GM cars. In my dream collection I will have a 1996 Buick Roadmaster wagon and a 2003 Buick Park Avenue. Plus, a Reatta, Allante and probably a 1992 Oldsmobile Trofeo. It looks awesome. Like the Regal Grand National, the Trofeo looks like your grandparents car with blacked out trim, fog lights and bigger wheels. Something about that formula is really cool. Mechanically identical to the doofier looking Toronado and Buick Riviera, the Trofeo is probably little more than an appearance package but it's one that works.

The Trofeo was powered by GM's prolific pushrod, 3.8 liter V6 and that was good for about 170 hp at the time. 1990 models have slightly less power. The '91 and '92 models had ABS standard and incorporated steering wheel audio and climate controls - pretty sweet for 1992. 0-60? Sure. Slalom? Maybe.

Consumer Guide says an Olds Trofeo is only worth about $1300 at most.
