nice old car, but safety concerns?
I bought my mom's 1988 Olds Delta88 years ago, but allowed it to sit in her garage over many years.
After mom passed away Dec '07, I decided to get it and put it to use.
My son is the main driver and it served him well through his high school years.
However, a couple days ago the brakes went out on him. Fortunately, he felt the warning signs and parked it at a friends house.
After looking at it, I discovered a rusted brake line was leaking. All the fluid had drained from master cylinder. I currently have it in shop to be fixed now.
Anywho, my main concern now is for my family's safety. This is a good runner, but is it a death trap? This car setup about 10 years in a garage, but it's been driven regularly since Mar 08. It's beautiful old car with low mileage (~76K), but I don't want to put anyone in danger. Are there other safety areas I should be concerned about for a 20+ year old car?
Services since Mar '08:
regular fluid changes
4 new tires
front brake rotors/pads
front sway bars
