New Car: '88 Chevery (its new to me at least)

I got a beautiful 1988 Brown Chevy with 130,000 miles on it.

Problem is, the person that had it before me smoked in it a lot, so there is a lingering smell of smoke in it.

Do you know of any ways to get rid of the smell

Try liberal use of Fabreeze or other odor remover. Unfortunately you may never get it all the way out as it will be in every nook and cranny as well as in all the heater/ac ducting. Have same problem with my '94 Toy pickup. Fortunately I don't drive it much.

GM has a new spray for organic odors.Try it spray compete inside of vehicle and open the hood and spray in the fresh air vent little screen type holes just below wipers on the right side.Would suggest having the heater on high blower to circulate the spray.Good Luck

I agree with all here.

Carpet Fresh works well as does charcoal which will remove the odor.

I drove around with CF in my sister's 85 Park Avenue for a week. It looked like the feds had been in there.

Smell was gone
