    It is of course a rear engined car the oil leaks could be from any engine area, valve cover gaskets engine caseings ect....Check the oil level. The engine may have to be cleaned off very well to pinpoint the source of the leak. If it is difficult to identify a repair shop may often add a florescent dye to the oil when the engine is run and you apply a black light to it it picks up the florescent dye and helps identify the source of the leak.
