Already Said Why...its Amazing. — I love that this car is just pure American from front to rear bumper and that its allllll muscle. Not a thing about this beauty is wrong. Ive gotta give credit to the designers of this car and say EXCELLENT JOB. The acceleration in this car as well as the handling are amazing and the braking is ok, nothing to go crazy about but it gets the job done. And its an American-built car...what more is there to say haha. Its an Amazing car and honstley, this is a car I see myself keeping for a LONG TIME. Its definetly a car for a person who loves to get in under the hood and play and there are sooo many upgrades you can put in it . Bottom line, Its amazing.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Its a Muscle Car.

Cons: Goes through gas like crazy.

Pros: comfy seats, big trunk

The Baddest 78 Olds 442 Clone That Olds Should Have Made! — I love this car. I'm making it into the oldsmobile that I invision. She's getting a 455 swap soon. I've had it since 1999. Won my 1st drag racing trophy in 2000 with her

Pros: unique, will be fast, classic olds styling

Cons: never fast enough, doesn't get 40mpg

A Cruising Classic — This is one of the first cars i owned, and i loved it to death. It was such a comfortable, smooth ride, and a real head turner. Now that i have it back from my ex, im going to try and get it back to its former glory. With summer time coming up, nothing beats cruising in the Cutlass!!

Pros: Nice and comfy, and you can seat 6 ( no SUV for me!!)

Cons: Since it is an older car, there is occasional upkeep

Don't Know Why, But I Always Liked This Ride — Jet black with T-Tops and red velour interior... Aye-chee-wah-wah!!!!! Oh, and it had a fully functional premuim 8 track payer with true quadrophonic quality sound. Yeah baby... Rode great and it had a good sized V-8 under the hood.

Pros: Classic style, Red Velour and the T-Tops

Cons: Leaky T-Tops, 8 track sound system

Overall:

Smooth Ride, Feels Heavy And Safe. — My 1978 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme was special ordered by my mother. It is a that rusty brown color, two door hardtop, with tan interior. It does not have a vinyl roof. The paint job is excellent, shiney and no chipping or fading. Everything works including the air conditioning - which is rare on a 30 year old car. Everything but the radiator cap is original. It is in mint conditon with only 9000 miles. It has been always been parked in a garage. I would like to know the value of the car.

Pros: smooth ride

Cons: non of which I can think

What's Under Your Hood? — The Cutlass Supreme is an instant classic. It's body style, shape and speed, nowadays, make it stand out in a crowd. Being an owner myself, I feel proud to own one. With a stock 305 V8 under my hood, I can stomp any cocky rookie at the stoplights. One thing that needs to be watched for it RUST! Undercoating is very important! The rear framerails are famous for being the first thing to go. And the plastic around the seatbelts will start the break and cut your seatbelts (which aren't very cheap, believe me). Also, try to keep the tires and rims as stock as possible. Too wide and the crome around the wheel well WILL cut into your tires; another issue I had. Overall, it's a very reliable car. The engine still starts even at -30 Celcius. If properly maintained, it will last you for many years to come.

Owner for 0 years, 3 months

Miles Driven per Year:2,000

Pros: Reliability, speed, classic styling

Cons: Easily rusts and plastic around seatbelts break with age and cut seatbelts.

Nice Cruiser. — Plenty of power, firm shifting, decent handling make this car really fun to drive. The 3.73 gear ratio in the rear combined with the posi really make this car pull off the line. At cruising speed, very smooth ride with soft suspension. The drum brakes in the rear are the biggest con. Plan your braking, because brakes are under powered for the weight of the car.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Fun car to drive!

Cons: Under powered brakes
