Cohort Sighting: 1978 Cutlass Salon – Dig Those Crazy Wide Whitewall Tires


Flickr user PShoar has posted quite a few photos to the Curbside Classic Cohort lately, including this pristine 1978 Cutlass Salon. He spotted it near Columbus, Ohio.


We’ve trod the Aeroback ground before, where we soundly panned this car’s awkard styling (CC here). But check out the wide whitewall tires with which this Aeroback is shod. They don’t suddenly make this car beautiful – but they do somehow strangely work, where they’d just look ridiculous on any other contemporary sedan.
