My everyday driver for the past 26 years is a 72 Oldsmobile Cutlass Convertible.
She just turned a 100k miles last year and got great rebuilt overdrive transmission and engine; original rocket 350 got bored and stroked to 424 ci.
She was un-hit until Mar when we got rear ended at a stoplight. Metal is fixed, hope we can paint in September.View attachment 68604 View attachment 68605

i didn't want a v8 or a stick, i have 26 years worth of sticking gears. had an '86 LX 5.0 with off road " H " pipe and no cats for a very long time so the quiet of my V6 is fine with me, i got exactly what i wantedNice car, enjoy it, but I would have held out for a V8 with a stick shift. My buddy had an '06 GT. Only had 300 horsepower back then, but enough to be fun and made the right sounds.
i still have a '79 fox body mustang in the backyard but i'm not motivated to get it going. i might get the '86 back next springNo problem, to each his own. But I bet you still miss that old fox body now and then. My work buddy had one which I enjoyed driving occasionally. But I'll never own an automatic, even my wife's SUV is a six speed manual. I don't particularly care for li'l Hondas with automatic clutches either.
