Like! I've always been an Oldsmomble (spelling intended) fan.

I had a '77 Cutlass Supreme Brougham, red with white vinyl top and red interior, and the 350 Rocket V8 with Quadrajet. I never had the Quadrajet troubles.

Like yours, mine had the matching paint color wheels with a nice chrome center cap. I believe Oldsmomble did a great job on styling.

I finally wore that car out and traded it in for a brand new Pontiac Grand Prix.

Enjoy yours.

Your car, like most any of the traditional old school muscle cars, has soul. Todays modern cars are pretty much blah, with no real sense of style and the coolness factor.

I need to find another and cruise around on Saturday nights. I wish drive in movies would make a comeback, and we do have one here. I remember when drive in movies were all over the place.

Very nice!

In 1988, age 15, I bought a 1967 Pontiac Firebird with a 400 big block.

Drove it till 1990 when it developed oil pressure issues. I went and found a 1970 Pontiac LeMans in a local junkyard with a decent 350 big block in it and with the help of a local car mechanic my family was friends with and went to, we transplanted that 350 into the Firebird.

I really look back fondly at that era when the old muscle cars were still a thing and the new rice burner 4 cylinders were just starting to show up.

I have an incredible emotional attachment to the 70 Cutlass; that’s a story for another time.

The one I reference was powered by a 350 Rocket with Hurst shifter. I loved that car.

Furlough, that is a beautiful machine.

Let's see if this works. Great sound from a muscle V-8

Pretty pipes, great sound! Love it when a V-8 thuds instead of roars.
