Cohort Sighting: Menacing Cutlass


As much as I adore A bodies in pillared sedan form, it would seem I’m in the minority.  So perhaps it’s perfectly fitting that this family sedan from the height of the muscle car era live out its later years with an aggressive rake, dressed in flat black.  


Designed with two extra doors crammed into its extended wheelbase, the raked look suits this Cutlass’s chunky hindquarters, and the bumper stickers round out the package.  I don’t know if williamrubano, who shared this find with us, had the chance to see it pull away, but I can only picture it doing so in a haze of shredded rubber and half-burned fuel.  This sort of bad boy is what should have influenced Oldsmobile’s attempt at reinvention.
