1979 Offered Tough Choices: Cutlass Supreme, Cutlass Calais, or Cutlass Brougham?

Oldsmobile got whacked by The General earlier in the decade, but there was once a time when Olds had the best-selling midsize car in the country: Cutlass!

Here we see a trio of hip Cutlass buyers choosing their Middle Malaise Era rides of choice. The Cutlass Supreme offered "style, value and good gas mileage," while the Cutlass Calais boasted bucket seats, special suspension, and full instrumentation." Naturally, the Cutlass Supreme Brougham was the pinnacle, with "richness inside you'd expect in bigger, more expensive cars."
