Modern cars have terrible windows. Sure, they keep out bugs, and block the wind, but they are boring. Stale. Lame. Back in the 1970s, cars had cool windows. The front windshield on this Oldsmoboat has a classic American window shape, but the B-pillar windows are just rad…and you might think they were the best until you find the rear window. Just look at it — it has a V-shape in rear glass. Why? Why not!! Find this 1977 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Brougham offered for $9000 in Homosassa, FL via hemmings.
This next car came from tipper Rock On who called it an AMC Unicorn. How could I not feature this car, it’s an AMC Matador Brougham…you had me at AMC!! Just look at that beige paint at the vinyl top, this belongs in a museum!! Find this 1974 AMC Matador Brougham offered for $11,900 in Medford, CA via craigslist.
I know what you’re thinking. You think that ten large is a skosh high to pay for a malaise era Olds Cutlass with a dirty engine bay…but hold on thought before you click away and start searching for used Fiats or something that doesn’t have the solid elegance, solid comfort, solid economy, or solid feeling of a vintage Olds Custlass Supreme Brougham. Plus, bad boy has a stick shift! Find this 1978 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme with 4-speed offered for $10,000 in Mira Mesa, CA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
The Oldsmobile corporate slogan in early 1986 was “There’s a special feel in an Oldsmobile”…which is ironic because that “special feel” wasn’t necessarily a good thing…but the corporate goons at Olds changed it in late 1986 to “Oldsmobile Quality. Feel it!”…also…funny in an ironic sorta way…but I have to admit that this Toronado has a […]
If you surf craigslist on a regular basis, you’ve probably seen everything. People claiming all kinds of stuff that clearly isn’t true (this is one of one) and then random threats director at strangers (if nobody buys it, I’m going to polish the headlights and then double the price)…but this next advert has something I’ve […]
To say that this next car will need some restoration is a bit of an understatement. The interior will need to be nuked from orbit (it’s the only way to be sure) and there is enough rust to earn a spot on the endangered species list…but…BUT…this thing is wicked sweet. It started life from the […]
Assumptions are a bad thing to make…and for years I just assumed that the song Gloria that I’d heard on the radio a thousand times was belted out by Mic Jagger of the Rolling Stones…but the guy who shouts out “She make me feel all-right…and her name is G-L-O-R-I…G-L-O-R-I-A GLORIA” was in fact Van Morrison […]
The Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera was a 1980’s fwd shrunken equivalent of near any 60’s or 70’s GM car. These cars had a relatively long model run from 1982-1996 and were available as a coupe, sedan, and wagon. Everything on the interior would have been very familiar to any senior citizen from the column shifter to the […]
This next car comes from Tanj! who writes: Not mine. Saw this as part of my morning searches. Low mile 1995 Fleetwood Brougham for sale in Austin for $4.3k. Leather seats look presentable. All chrome bits are intact and look undamaged. Even better all the plastic trim bits on the chrome and bumpers appear undamaged. […]
A good rule of thumb is to buy someone else’s completed project car. In nearly all cases, it’s far cheaper than paying for a restoration yourself. Today’s car presents the question, is it madness or genius to spend twelve grand building up a sleeper GM B-body? The 84 Buick LeSabre is the cousin of the […]
