Curbside Classic: Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Brougham &#; Adulting, s Style

I often hear my twenty-something children and their friends talk about &#;adulting&#;.  Adulting seems to be the practice of what we of an earlier generation called taking care of business.  Adulting involves putting aside all of the crazy, fun things that you would rather (or could otherwise afford to) be doing and being a responsible grown-up.  For today&#;s millennials adulting involves things like keeping your bills paid instead of going to concerts out of town and shopping for things like tires or car insurance.  Or in the words of those a generation or two beyond me, vegetables before dessert.

Adulting can also involve buying a new car.  It does not involve buying the wholly impractical (if not bat-shit  crazy) cheap stuff that starry-eyed kids fall in love with, like the s Dodge pickup truck with its roof sawn off that briefly served the teenage son of a family in my neighborhood.  Or the yellow and purple twenty-year-old Nash sedan that showed up with an older brother of my childhood next door neighbor before disappearing just as suddenly.  In my case it was the well-worn $ &#;63 Cadillac that had been sitting undriven in a garage for a year.  &#;What a great car, nothing ever goes wrong with these.&#;  No, adulting requires that one choose something normal and practical.

In the s, there was nothing more normal and practical than the Oldsmobile Cutlass.  The car&#;s size, price, looks, performance and quality hit a home run, making it the most popular single car in America for several years.  Adulting in the s very often involved the purchase of a new Cutlass.

My cousin Butch adulted in just this way.  When he was young and carefree he showed up at our house in a yellow M.G. Midget.  He may have moved to something more practical than the Midget (and what wasn&#;t?) but I don&#;t remember.  But I do remember that day when he had reached that point in his mid 20s where he had a stable job and was engaged.  We had heard that he was looking for a new car and one day he showed up in it &#; a pale yellow Cutlass Supreme 2 door trimmed with a burgundy vinyl roof and velour interior.  In other words, a car very much like this one.  I can&#;t recall if Butch went all out with the Brougham &#; but probably not as broughaming was not usally a part of adulting.  Adulting involved choosing a more restrained trim level, which was just one more bit of practice in the lifelong art of not getting everything you want.

I was conflicted.  I was happy to see Butch moving on in his life, plainly on the road to happiness and success.  But . . . damn . . . a Cutlass?  To translate my reaction to something more identifiable today, think of a kid buying his first Civic or Corolla.  Or maybe a CR-V or Escape.  A completely acceptable choice, one for which nobody will criticize you.  Other than that it was so . . . adult.

I did not mean &#;adult&#; in a good way either, the way we usually thought of adulthood at the time.  I was thinking of it in the modern context of &#;adulting&#;.  Poor Butch.  He thought he had bought a new car.  I saw him fastening the shackle around his ankle, consigned to the purgatory of velour and an overmatched cid V8 which also came with a hefty payment book.  Poor bastard.  Jeez, for a lot less money you could buy a ten year old Ford convertible with a 3 friggin&#; 90 and have something fun and unique (when you were not wrenching on it).  But that wasn&#;t adulting.

I would never succumb to the anesthesia that was a Cutlass, of course.  I had gotten a whiff of adulting a year or two earlier when I found myself alone, piloting my stepmom&#;s &#;74 Cutlass Supreme coupe.  I will never forget the sensation of being surrounded by brilliant white vinyl and thinking &#;OK Jimmy, this is what real life is like.  One of these times you are going to join the great herd by wearing a tie every day and doing all kinds of shit you don&#;t want to do.  You are going to have to eventually make your peace with a Cutlass.&#;  It was not a good feeling.  Perhaps that Cutlass moment of clarity hit me particularly hard because I had been riding in the Cutlasses (and Fs) of parents since I had been a wee tot.  If the &#;61, the &#;64, the &#;68, the &#;72, and that &#;74 in which I had spent nearly a lifetime had conditioned me to anything it was that fun cars may be for some people, but not for the adults that my family was likely to turn out.  Because we bought Oldsmobiles.  I knew that one day, my unavoidable Cutlass-moment would come.  And there wasn&#;t a damned thing I could do about it.

But then a funny thing happened.  Around the time I became an actual (as opposed to theoretical) adult, the Cutlass began to dissolve into irrelevance, at least as far as early-stage adulting was concerned.  By  the adulting concept involved a Honda Accord or a Toyota Celica instead of a Cutlass.  Glory Hallelujah!

Some of us go into adulthood more easily than others, and as far as my automotive life went, adulthood did not get its claws fully into me for several years thereafter.  The &#;85 Volkswagen GTI was a thumb in the eye of adulthood and the &#;66 Plymouth Fury III that followed it was a kick to adulthood&#;s groin.  But grownupedness had the last laugh (as it always does) when I married a girl with . . . an &#;88 Honda Accord.  But thank the Good Lord it wasn&#;t a Cutlass.

As I got older and watched Oldsmobile swirl around and then flow down the drain I began to miss the Big O.  Just a little.  Then adulthood got its sweet revenge when I pulled up my big boy pants and sold my beloved &#;68 Chrysler Newport for . . . an Oldsmobile.  An &#;84 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight Regency, to be precise.  It was the responsible choice, much newer and with fewer miles.  Though this wasn&#;t so much adulting as it was pseudo-grandparenting.  It was an OK car, but not anything that ever really got my juices flowing.  How adult.

But now, nearly forty years on, I can say that I kind of like this little Oldsmobile.  Except for the color.  Egad, who can like that?  I had to suck up wearing a tuxedo in that color when one of my cousins (was it Butch again?) got married around that time.  It was the &#;70s, that&#;s for sure.  Today I can admire the clean lines of this car, particularly the way Oldsmobile&#;s stylists were able to capture the essence of Cutlass in the make-or-break stakes of the downsizing.  The only thing the Cutlass lost in the translation to a smaller, slimmer version of itself was the smooth, torque-making cid (L) Rocket V8 with that signature Oldsmobile sound bubbling from the exhaust pipe.  The wimpy little (L) V8 never possessed the ample, relaxed power of its big brother.  Who knows, this alone may have begun the car&#;s fall from grace with those classes of matriculating adults whose field of view was wider than that of their parents.  Or perhaps the car was doomed by parental popularity, which has been a killer of minivan and sedan sales in recent years.

Either way, it was a blast from the past to gaze upon this 79 Cutlass Supreme Brougham which, if not something that could pass for showroom new, is agonizingly close for a car going on forty.  But if transported back to with a second chance, would I sign on the dotted line for a new Cutlass?  Not a chance, Dude &#; after all, there was a white &#;59 Plymouth Fury sedan that was delivered to its first owner on the day I was born, and calling my name from the used car lot of a Dodge dealer in Muncie, Indiana.  Sometimes adulting just has to wait.

Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme

Main article: Oldsmobile Cutlass

Motor vehicle

The Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme is a mid-size car produced by Oldsmobile between and It was positioned as a premium offering at the top of the Cutlass range. It began as a trim package, developed its own roofline, and rose during the mids to become not only the most popular Oldsmobile but the highest selling model in its class.

It was produced as a rear-wheel drive two-door hardtop, sedan, and station wagon into the s, and a convertible through In Oldsmobile sought to capitalize on the brand equity of the Cutlass Supreme marque by replacing it with a downsized front-wheel drive model based on the GM10 platform W-platform.

When production ended there was no direct replacement for the Cutlass Supreme, although the Intrigue introduced for was designed in size and price to replace all the Cutlass models.

First generation (–)[edit]

Motor vehicle

Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme rear

The Cutlass Supreme name first appeared for the model year, the first year of GM's new intermediate four-door hardtopsedan—also known as the Holiday Sedan. In addition to the new body style (also available on the midline F Deluxe series), the Supreme featured a plusher interior that included a bench seat with armrest, full wheel covers and deluxe door panels among other items including "CS" emblems on the rear C-pillars and trunk lid. Although smaller than the traditional domestic cars, "its deluxe interior makes it comparable with LTD, VIP, DPL, and Caprice."[1]

For the model year, the Cutlass Supreme line was expanded into a full series that also included a two-door hardtopcoupe (Holiday Coupe), two-door pillared coupe (Sport Coupe), four-door pillared sedan (Town Sedan) and a convertible. Generally, interior appointments in Supreme models were more luxurious than lesser F and Cutlass series cars and included a cloth or vinyl bench seat with armrest in sedan models and all-vinyl Strato bucket seats in coupes and convertibles.

For both years, the standard Supreme engine was Oldsmobile's &#;cu&#;in (&#;L) "Ultra High Compression" Jetfire Rocket V8 rated at &#;hp (&#;kW) with a four-barrel carburetor. Transmission offerings included a standard three-speed manual with column shift, floor-mounted four-speed manual with Hurst shifter or a two-speed Jetaway automatic.

In , the high-performance package with the &#;cu&#;in (&#;L) horsepower (&#;kW) V8 was available on three Cutlass Supreme models including the sport coupe, Holiday coupe and convertible. Also available on each of those three Supreme two-door models was "Turnpike Cruiser" option that included a cubic-inch V8 with two-barrel carburetor and &#;hp (&#;kW) rating along with a numerically lower rear axle and Turbo Hydramatic transmission.

Second generation (–)[edit]

Motor vehicle

The Cutlass and other GM intermediates were completely restyled for with wheelbases shortened to inches (2,&#;mm) for 2-door coupe models and lengthened one inch to &#;in (2,&#;mm) for four-door sedans and station wagons (with the exception of the glass-roof Vista Cruiserstation wagon, which rode on an even longer inch (3,&#;mm) wheelbase). The Cutlass Supreme, now the top-line Olds intermediate series, was pared down to two- and four-door hardtop models with the pillared sedans and coupes dropped and the convertible moved to the lower-priced Cutlass "S" line, upon which the muscle car was now based. Also the standard Rocket V8 was enlarged from to cubic inches with &#;hp (&#;kW).

The models received only a minor facelift such as a new split grille and vertical taillights with the same model and engine offerings. A new three-speed Turbo Hydra-matic was added to the option list to replace the two-speed Jetaway automatic. Headrests were made standard equipment due to federal safety mandate and the ignition switch moved from the instrument panel to the steering column, which also was designed to lock the steering wheel. This ignition/steering wheel interlock, found on all model General Motors passenger cars, except for the Corvair, debuted one year before the federal government mandated it on all models.

For , the Cutlass Supreme nameplate was switched to Oldsmobile's equivalent of the downsized Pontiac Grand Prix on the A-body, to give the division an entry in the burgeoning market for smaller personal luxury cars. As such, the two-door hardtop had a new notchback roofline, while lower trim-line Cutlass coupes had a fastback style roof. The model remained in this role for virtually all of its production life. Unlike the Grand Prix and the also-related Chevrolet Monte Carlo, which had wholly separate bodies and names from their less expensive siblings, the Supreme shared front and rear body parts with the standard Cutlass line and was always marketed as part of it. In addition to the two-door hardtop (Holiday Coupe), the Cutlass Supreme series for also included a four-door hardtop (Holiday Sedan) and regained the convertible bodystyle.

Supreme interiors were more luxurious that those of other Cutlass models, with a choice of a Custom Sport notchbackbench seat with armrest in Osborne cloth or Moroccan vinyl or, at no extra cost (on coupes and convertibles only), Strato bucket seats in Moroccan vinyl. Available at extra cost with the bucket seats was a center console with floor-mounted shifter for which the Turbo Hydra-Matic transmission could also be had with the Hurst Dual-Gate shifter commonly found in the division's musclecar, the Oldsmobile

Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme convertible

For and , both the Cutlass Supreme coupe and convertible were available with the Code Y high performance SX option package. The "SX" option included several versions of the larger cubic-inch Rocket V8 borrowed from the Olds along with the cutout rear bumper and exhaust trumpets, 's rallye suspension (optional), distinctive SX badges and other features.

A W31 option added distinctive stripes and badging, and a camshaft with increased lift and duration for the engine. The W31 option was offered on Supreme coupes only in , but continued on lower-line F and Cutlass S coupes through

was the only year in which the Cutlass Supreme notchback hardtop could be equipped with the L75 and M20 four speed transmission, and only 77 of these cars were produced. All L75 /M20 cars used the larger valves and the W30 automatic camshaft. This gave the L75 /M20 cars net horsepower, as opposed to the TH automatic-equipped L75 cars, which produced net horsepower.

The Hurst/Olds was based on the Supreme two-door hardtop and convertible, powered by both versions of the Rocket offered on the , along with a Turbo transmission with Hurst Dual/Gate shifter. The H/O convertible also served as the Indianapolis Pace Car in

was also the final year for Olds to offer the Cutlass Supreme convertible, until In its final year, it was the best-selling convertible in the U.S., with 11, sold, or 16% of the market, beating the Eldorado and Corvette.[2] From to , the only Oldsmobile convertible offered was the full-sized Delta 88 Royale.

Third generation (–)[edit]

Motor vehicle

In , the Cutlass Supreme, like other GM mid-size cars, was redesigned. Hardtop models were replaced by new "Colonnade" styling with fixed center pillars. Concerns over proposed rollover standards caused many automakers to phase out their pillarless hardtops and convertibles throughout the s, and the Cutlass was no exception. Despite some initial controversy over the disappearance of hardtop models, the new GM mid-sized line proved highly successful. Cutlass Supreme coupes had a unique roofline with vertical opera windows not shared with other Cutlass coupes, as well as unique front end styling.

Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme coupe

The Cutlass line soon became Oldsmobile's biggest seller, accounting for 43% of the division's total volume in , with the Cutlass Supreme coupe being the single most popular model. With rectangular headlights newly legalized in , the Cutlass received a facelift for the model year featuring quad headlights and a waterfall grille. This attractive redesign boosted sales even further. The Cutlass line as a whole was America's best-selling car in , helping Oldsmobile to become the only marque outside of Ford and Chevrolet to break one-million units sold. By , however, GM had downsized its full-size models, and the Cutlass Supreme was now nearly identical in size to the redesigned Delta That situation would last only that one year, as GM planned to downsize the Olds Cutlass and other intermediates for

In addition to the Colonnade hardtopcoupe, the Cutlass Supreme was also offered in a four-door Colonnade sedan (with six-window styling and frameless door windows) as well as six-and-nine passenger station wagons - the wagons with the woodgrain exterior trim were marketed under the Vista Cruiser nameplate previously used on Oldsmobile's stretched-wheelbase station wagons with raised roof and skylights from to

The Supreme Colonnade sedan was available in as the Cutlass Salon, which was an option package that included radial tires, upgraded suspension and reclining bucket seats upholstered in corduroy or vinyl trim along with color-keyed wheelcovers - designed as sort of a European-style luxury/touring sedan similar to the Pontiac Grand Am of the same period. For , the Salon package was also made available on the Supreme Colonnade coupe and in , the Salon was upgraded to a separate series available in both sedan and coupe. The s received a new, more squared off grille, slightly larger and incorporating parking lights. The bumpers also continued to grow ever larger.

For , the Rocket V8 with four-barrel carburetor and horsepower (&#;kW) was the standard Cutlass Supreme engine with a horsepower Rocket offered as an option. Both three- and four-speed manual transmissions were offered in , but the greatest majority of Cutlasses (including Supremes) were built with the three-speed Turbo Hydra-matic automatic transmission which became standard equipment in , along with variable-ratio power steering.

The energy crisis resulting from the Arab Oil Embargo led Oldsmobile to introduce two new smaller engines to the Cutlass line in The Chevrolet built cubic-inch inline six and three-speed manual transmission were reinstated as standard equipment on the Supreme coupe and sedan with a new Olds-built cubic-inch Rocket V8 (standard on Cutlass Salon and optional on all other Cutlasses except wagons) offered as an option. However, the majority of Cutlass Supremes in , , and were sold with the now-optional Rocket V8 and Turbo Hydra-matic automatic (still standard on wagons). The Rocket V8 was optional through , and replaced by a smaller Rocket V8 in , the same year in which a Buick-built cubic-inch V6 replaced the Chevy inline six as base power in most Cutlass models.

Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme coupe

For , the Cutlass Supreme Brougham coupe was added to the line, featuring a more luxurious interior trim than the regular Supreme model with pillowed crushed velour upholstery and 60/40 bench seats similar to the larger Ninety-Eight Regency. It also received quad square headlights. For , the Brougham was also available as a four-door Colonnade sedan. The grille was also changed, with each half divided into five rather than two segments of bars divided by chrome strips.

A five-speed manual transmission was available as an option with the V8 in all models except Supreme Brougham and station wagons for

Fourth generation (–)[edit]

Motor vehicle

The Cutlass Supreme was downsized for , along with the rest of the Cutlass line. An upscale Cutlass Calais model was added, differing from the Cutlass Supreme only in minor trim details. The new notchback Cutlass Supreme proved to be far more popular than the controversial fastbackCutlass Salon coupe and sedan introduced at the same time.

The Cutlass Calais, essentially replaced the previous Cutlass Salon series, as far as model position and content were concerned. The Calais featured reclining Strato bucket seats, center console, sport steering wheel, full instrumentation, tuned suspension with front and rear sway bars, color-keyed wheelcovers, front grilles mimicking an ice cube tray (as opposed to the waterfall style used with the Cutlass Supreme) and more.

Both the Cutlass Supreme and Calais were available with T-tops or a factory sunroof, even on the base Cutlass Supreme coupe with the factory radio delete option.

From through , a high-performance model was available, and for (Cutlass Calais), a special-edition performance model, the Hurst/Olds was offered. These used the Supreme's notchback body, rather than the standard fastback coupe's. Around 2, Hurst/Olds were produced - all were powered with an Oldsmobile L ( cubic-inch) Rocket V8 (not the diesel engine) sourced from the full-sized Delta 88 and Ninety Eight Regency. Also included in the Hurst/Olds package was the Hurst Dual/Gate shifter for the three-speed Turbo Hydra-matic transmission.

In , the Cutlass line featured taillights which had a lighted Oldsmobile rocket logo in the center.

In , the taillights on the Cutlass line dropped the rocket logo.

In , the two-door models went back to four headlights. A 4-door notchbacksedan (known as Cutlass, Cutlass LS, and Cutlass Brougham) replaced the unpopular 4-door "aeroback" Salon, which continued in two-door form for one more year. The Supreme Brougham package was available on and off throughout production. This was also the first year GM introduced the OBD-I computer controlled engine management and emission control system.

The option moved from the aeroback Cutlass Salon coupe body to the notchback Cutlass Calais for , with content upgraded from a mere "appearance and handling" package back to a legitimate performance option with content similar to the Hurst/Olds including its Rocket V8. This would be the last until that model was revived in again on the Cutlass notchback body as a successor to the –84 Hurst/Olds.

In , the Cutlass Supreme coupe received an aerodynamic restyle (with a "shovel-nose" front header panel), which, along with a higher rear deck, decreased air resistance by 15%.[3] It would continue with this basic design until the final rear-drive Cutlass was produced in A 4-door sedan was added to the Supreme lineup, with a new front end and a slight taillight lens restyle (resembling a touch-tone dial or Rubik's Cube - this lens style was used until ). It was this restyled body that (along with the Chevrolet Monte Carlo, Buick Regal, and Pontiac Grand Prix) ushered in the downsized cars into NASCAR cup competition. While the Cutlass looked almost identical to the Buick Regal (which scored 35+ victories in the thru seasons), the Cutlass (like the Dodge Mirada) didn't take one checkered flag, and many teams moved away from it in to the Regal, Grand Prix, and restyled Monte Carlo SS. This was a rude awakening to Oldsmobile, which was getting used to wins on the NASCAR circuit.

In GM introduced the front-wheel driveA-body as the volume replacement for the vintage RWD A-bodies. Oldsmobile launched the FWD Cutlass Ciera, but lower gas prices and strong sales allowed them to continue sales of the older RWD Cutlass Supreme as a premium model until (The older body was renamed to be the G-Body.)

The Hurst/Olds reappeared on the Cutlass Calais coupe for two years, first in as the black over silver 15th anniversary, and then as the silver over black model. Both featured chrome wheels, red striping and a high output Oldsmobile V8 with 4 barrel carburetor, dual muffler exhausts and Hurst's then new three stick Lightning Rods shifter (the latter eventually becoming a magnet for thieves.) All Hurst/Olds were automatics.

The Cutlass Cruiser stationwagon nameplate was moved to the Cutlass Ciera in

The Cutlass Supreme was produced by Oldsmobile and designed after the Oldsmobile Calais, which became a separate model on the GM N platform in the same year. The rear-wheel drive Cutlass Calais was renamed the Cutlass Salon (taking its name from the upscale Supreme coupe and sedan that preceded the Calais).

“ liter V8 engine, available. The added performance that adds to the pleasure of driving.”[4] The Olds Cutlass Supreme coupe and sedan were stock with a liter V6, 2 barrel engine, while a 5-liter V8 engine was available at extra cost.

Brougham Coupe and Sedan - Although very similar to the original Cutlass Supreme, the Brougham is slightly better equipped. It has the same exact liter stock engine and 3-speed transmission, but has a divided front bench seat with individual controls and the choice of velour trim in five colors. Also includes a convenience group with lamps, visor vanity mirror and chime tones. To finish off the specialization of the premium model, Oldsmobile created specific Brougham hood ornaments.[4]

was the final year for the rear-wheel drive sedan, and both coupe models received a restyled header panel with composite headlights. A Buick was the base motor alongside the Oldsmobile For its final year, the package was moved to the Supreme model.

was the final year for the rear-wheel drive Cutlass Supreme. It was badged Cutlass Supreme Classic, and 27, were built.[5] The 2-door coupe (produced alongside the Chevrolet Monte Carlo at GM's Pontiac, Michigan plant) continued, until the new front-wheel drive version was released in December The Olds was the only available engine.

A front-wheel-drive Cutlass Supreme based on the GM10 platform (W-body) was introduced as a 2-door notchbackcoupe mid-year during the production run, while the final year of Cutlass Supreme RWDcoupes were still being produced. This new FWD model shared its &#;in (2,&#;mm) wheelbase with the Pontiac Grand Prix, Buick Regal, and later Chevrolet Lumina. The and models were 2-door coupes. This body style proved to be a winner for NASCAR competition and it visited the victory circle 13 times between and , when Oldsmobile ended its racing program.[citation needed] A 4-door notchbacksedan and a 2-door convertible were added for Models included base (later called S), SL, and the sporty International Series. Throughout its run, the convertible was considered a separate trim level.

International Series models could be equipped with unique features such as quad bucket seats with dual center consoles, a driver information system and a heads-up display. A very rare Muncie 5-speed manual transmission option was paired first with the &#;l (&#;cu&#;in) 60°V6 in and In , a revised Getrag 5-speed manual transmission option was available for the high-output Quad-4I4 and the DOHC &#;l (&#;cu&#;in) 60° V6 in and The entire line was restyled for , with coupes and convertibles gaining distinctive "mini-quad" headlamps shared with the Pontiac Grand Prix coupe. A driver's side airbag became standard in , and a new ergonomically curved dashboard with dual airbags debuted in

The trim levels and the lineup were gradually pared down over time. The Quad-4 was last produced during the model year; the manual transmission option during ; the International Series during ; the S model during ; the convertible during ; and the &#;L V6 engine option during The Cutlass Supreme ceased production at the end of the model year. That same year, an N-body Cutlass (actually a badge-engineered Malibu) was introduced to replace the Ciera, but this model lasted just three years. The Cutlass Supreme's place in the Oldsmobile line was taken by the Intrigue, built on the next version of the W platform. The Cutlass Supreme ended production on April 24,

The W-body Cutlass Supreme was built in Doraville, Georgia from to , and at the Fairfax Plant in Kansas City, Kansas from to The first Cutlass Supreme rolled off the assembly line on January 13, [citation needed] The last Cutlass Supreme convertible was completed on February 15, [citation needed] The reason for this is that the last 34, cars built in Doraville were sedans, the coupe production was sent to Fairfax, Kansas around March 1, , and Cars and Concepts did not have a facility near Fairfax.[citation needed]

Indianapolis Pace Car[edit]

In the Indianapolis Motor Speedway chose Oldsmobile to pace “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing”, with retired United States Air Force General Chuck Yeager behind the wheel.[7] Traditionally a manufacturer builds many pace car replicas, often thousands.[8] But in Oldsmobile chose to build only 50 Cutlass Convertible Indy Pace Car editions. All 50 (used on track on race day and in Festival activities) were essentially hand-built. General Motors/Oldsmobile contracted Cars and Concepts of Brighton, Michigan to build each of these 50 unique cars. Following the race 50 very select Oldsmobile dealers were given the opportunity to purchase one of these cars. The price was set at full invoice price for a standard International Series coupe (~$14,) plus the cost of the convertible conversion (an additional $13,).[9][10] Each was highly optioned, including the first-ever application of Heads Up Display in an American production vehicle developed by Hughes Electronics. After the 50 were claimed, paid for and delivered to the lucky Olds dealers who said yes, the story of these cars gets more interesting. After the 50 were in the dealers' hands across the country, General Motors discovered some issue with the certification of these one-off models. Each dealer was asked to return them to GM (where they were to be destroyed) and receive full credit of their purchase price. Most of the 50 were returned for credit, but a few dealers objected and kept their cars, leaving (by all accounts) less than 10 in the general population. Mr. Thomas Knobloch, a second-generation Oldsmobile dealer in Erie, Pennsylvania was one of those dealers who refused to relinquish his car.[11] He instead held on to it as a collectible. Realizing its incredible rarity and place in both GM/Oldsmobile and Indy history, he drove less than miles (1,&#;km) over his many years of ownership. The Knobloch family sold the car after his death.[11]
