In the comment section of the post I did last week, Redusernab Fastback Friday: The
Government(sorry for the poor taste there) General Motors Edition, tonyola posted the above image of a “fastback anti 442”. I found it amusing as I had seen one similar while out at the track on Saturday and thought I would share it with my fellow Hoons.
As you can see it is similar to tonyola’s 442 but this one is a plain jane 1979 Olds Cutlass Salon, 4 door no less. It was offered for sale, originally at $6,500!
Now this olelongrooffan can hear my fellow Hoons screaming at the top of your lungs “Who gives a shit about the old car?” Well, when I first approached it I had the same thought. Then I got around back and spotted the for sale sign.
That’s right, it a DIESEL. I can’t believe it is still running and with 107,000 on its clock to boot! I never did find the yellow sheet listing all the new parts but I am sure it was more than a single sheet if this thing still runs. And it appears the seller may have initially over estimated the price this creature would bring!
But to this olelongrooffan, the remnants of the badge on the ass end of this orphan says it all.
