1985 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Brougham 5.0L V8 from North America
A wonderful car, I wish they still made the Cutlass
Well when I purchased the car, it needed new tires and a front end alignment.
Then the air conditioning needed to be repaired.
Then it needed new brakes.
Then the headliner was replaced.
The paint was faded, and the clear coat peeled off.
This is a wonderful car. I bought this in 1995 with the insurance money I got when somebody smashed into my old car and totaled it. And I have loved this car ever since.
Everything to the car is original, with the exception of the stuff mentioned, but it is set up like it originally was. I added a CD player to it, and that's it for modifications. I even have all of the original paperwork for this car that I'm keeping with it.
All in all, this car is wonderful to drive as a daily. It doesn't get the best gas mileage by today's standards, but oh well, I'd take this over any car built today anytime.
Things like the pillow top seats, the chrome trim, the locking wire wheel covers, and even the vinyl roof shows how classy American cars were back then. And I love them.
I might be buying a 1985 Buick Regal Limited soon, so this guy down my street doesn't crush it. It needs a new engine, which I can take care of that problem.
All in all, I love my Cutty, and hopefully soon will be saving a Regal too.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
