Maybe not the best cars in history, but I'd take this Cutlass in an instant rather than the bland stuff being produced today. Definition of frustration: Now retired and able to afford just about any new car within reason, there is nothing I wish to buy!
I bought a '76 bran new. It was white and burgundy. I bought the Salon model for the sport appearance. It had super soft comfortable seating in white vinyl. The balance of the interior was burgundy but I think the headliner was white. Half roof was also burgundy. The engine was an olds 350. Also had posi-traction and I had the insides coated by Ziebart. I'll never forget the thrill of driving that automobile.
Now that's a ride from the 70's! Love the low miles and original condition. Really love all the chrome and do dads from my youth. I'm not a big fan of the Colonnade cars, but this one, in 0one of my favorite colors, is a fine looking automobile. Truly from the days where you would rather sit in your car, than sit on your couch, because the car was far more comfortable. 🙂 Thank you Thomas!
I owned a 73 Cutlass Supreme. I prefer the looks of the earlier cars personally. The flush mount bumper out back looked very good and I suspect that if you were to suck in the front bumper a bit, it would be a real stunner.
At some point after Hacker and before Green Chevrolet, it was Warren Chevrolet, up on 42nd Ave, now called Avenue of the Cities. Green/Chrysler/Plymouth is where I saw my ‘70 Monte Carlo, late one rainy night in early November. I had saved all my money from working over the summer to buy her. 30 years later, transported all over this country, I still have the old girl.
The hardest part about the 73-77s was the rust, first it ate the bumpers, then the doors.
Still, tons of fun in my Buddy Mark’s 77 SJ, doing donuts in the empty snow covered Venture parking lot.
