What kind of car is this?

Anybody have any idea what kind of car this is? I love the size of the wheels in proportion to the car itself.

I'm going to go with Oldsmobile Tornado.

76 or 77 plain jane olds cutlas. Still not sure of the attraction. Now a 442 that's another story.

Definitely not a Toronado but it is an Oldsmobile. Im leaning towards Delta royale. Even more impressive is the rear bumper made out of a 2x4!!!

Because we all know "442" lost its true meaning in 1968.

Not a delta. Deltas had a bigger rear roof area. Pretty sure it was a cutlas

shadowglenn 01-12-2013 03:03 AM

Yeah 4 barrel 4 speed dual exhaust what changed in 69. I forget.

Isn't it a Monte Carlo?

Yeah. But even to label it a Toronado was bad. Back in the day those were hella cars, front drive, 300hp, all kindsa crazy torque stear. Hell yeah!!!

Dual exhaust. In 68 they changed it to 400/4 barrel/ 2 exhaust. A real 442 has a shift tranny as should any muscle car of that era.

Oops. Sorry, in 68 they began putting slushbox trannys in them. This is why they changed to 400/4barrel/ 2 exhaust.

I did not say toranado someone else did. That would starsky and hutch.

Wrong again muchacho. Toronado was an Oldsomobile product. That heap if crap in "Starsky&Hutch " was a Gran Torino.

Fortunately you at least have good taste in 4x4's.

shadowglenn 01-12-2013 03:25 AM

Are those bullet holes?

I think it's a 1976 Cutlass Supreme, like this one...

Come on, give credit where credit is due. Those are clearly 2x6's making up his/her rear bumper. Much more stout than your ordinary 2x4 construction.:D

And on closer observation they went all out and used green treated lumber. Now that is true dedication. You don't see that kind of craftsmanship anymore now everything on cars is plastic.:thumb:
