Cohort Outtake: 1969 Olds 442 Convertible – Can I Borrow It (Or The Buick) For The Weekend?

Labor Day weekend: and we’re having weather to die for, as we usually do in late August and all of September. Very dry, clear air, cool nights dipping well into the forties, and brilliant sunny weather, peaking in the high seventies. Mountain weather, I call it. Perfect for taking this ’69 Olds 442 for a spin up in the Cascades. We’re going to slow down our CC labors and posting tempo a bit, and get out and enjoy what I’m talking about, even if it isn’t in this red ragtop. Maybe the big 1940 Buick straight eight instead? Yes!!

CC Cohort channaher shot these at the same place as the other Big Americans we looked at last week.
