I know it sometimes feels like I pick on GM a lot for these meh car articles, but they just did such a stellar job at making some truly dull, forgettable automobiles. It’s a talent, really. A terrible, terrible talent. If you start feeling some pity for GM, then I’m going to implore you to jam a syringe of adrenaline…
Finding a survivor ‘70s GM product, and then discovering it has one of the company's diesel engines under hood is sort of like starting a semester abroad and then finding out your roommate is Amanda Knox. Today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe Pipe Olds Cutlass is just such a discovery, and like Amanda, its price might just…
In 1974 the Mercury Cougar and the Oldsmobile Cutlass were two strong contenders in the midsized luxury class. As this vintage Car and Track comparison shows, what these two cars lacked in performance they made up for with nice interiors and semi-acceptable handling.
We've seen a few of Car and Track's "super car wring-outs" before, but in the words of host Bud Lindemann this week's 1968 Oldsmobile Hurst Cutlass might be "the silkiest bomb ever nestled between four wheels". Hint: It's a good thing.
Swiveling bucket seats in a '75 Cutlass— well, you can't argue with the soundness of that concept, no sir. But when you add reversible vinyl/cloth seat inserts?
More headroom than the Volvo 242! A longer wheelbase than the VW Dasher! Crypto-fastback styling!
Remember the super-rough '71 Cutlass Supreme we saw down on the Alameda street over the summer? You can add it to the list of Doomed DOTS Cars, right after this '67 Cougar!
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!
Welcome to Down On The Street, where we admire old vehicles found parked on the streets of the Island That Rust Forgot: Alameda, California. Here's a classic that just needs a little TLC!
If you're only interested in the getting the best that life has to offer, then Nice Price or Crack Pipe has a car for you- the best selling car in America. . . in 1976.
I've finally dragged out the ol' SCSI slide scanner (purchased back when my main computer was a Centris 650, so we're talking prehistoric hardware here) and digitized more of my old I-5 photos.
68% of our readers felt that 15 grand was a Nice Price for the super-original 1979 Shag Van, and it's hard to disagree with that judgment. Today we've got something a bit more recent.
This is Down On The Street Bonus Edition, where we check out interesting street-parked cars located in places other than the Island That Rust Forgot. Today we've got a couple of cars that no sane person would expect to find parked on the streets of Melbourne, Australia: a right-hand-drive Malaise Era Olds Cutlass…
What we have here in this Mexican ad appears to be an Olds Cutlass Ciera with a wing and "Eurosport" badging. Apparently El General felt that Mexican car buyers associated the Oldsmobile name with mystery and adventure, and why wouldn't they? Thanks to Uncle Bo for the tip!
You may know the '85 Olds Cutlass Ciera best as the car that Jerry Lundegaard gave to a couple of North Dakota hoodlums as partial payment for a harebrained fake-kidnap scheme in the movie Fargo. Quite a claim to fame, that- but don't forget that the Cutlass Ciera was all about patriotism back in the day. Yes, the…
