Behold, ladies and gentlemen of Oversteer, a piece of Oldsmobile history. What you see here is a 2003 Oldsmobile Aurora with something like 16,000 miles. And not only is this a perfectly preserved Aurora, but it's number 67 of the final 500 Aurora models ever manufactured -- the true end of the line for the Oldsmobile brand. This is a must-have for all you serious Oldsmobile collectors out there.

Before I cover the specifics, here's a little background: In the early 2000s, General Motors had something like 47 different car brands. Maybe 57 -- nobody is really sure. At one point, there was a General Motors brand in Canada called "Asuna." I'm not kidding. Anyway, one of those brands was Oldsmobile, which had been going on for over a century and whose name had really become an apt description of its business model: Selling mobility to older people.

At some point, General Motors decided to trim the brands, so they ditched Oldsmobile (along with Pontiac and Geo, and then later Hummer and Saturn). Oldsmobile, at the time, had five models: the Bravada SUV, Silhouette minivan and Alero, Intrigue and Aurora sedans (along with an Alero coupe). For most of the Oldsmobile models, the final model year was 2003, and Oldsmobile marked the occasion with a "Final 500" run of each, giving special stitching and extra fanfare to the last models they built from each line.

The Aurora was the flagship, so some would argue that this is a special car -- especially with these miles, and especially in this preserved condition. This one features the optional 4.0-liter V8, too, giving it a little extra oomph over the standard 3.5-liter engine. If ever there was a collectible Oldsmobile Aurora, this is it. And now's your chance to buy it.
