My other hobby..
Looks nice, I was never a big fan of that body style until I bought a '73 Laguna with a 375hp 454 and an automatic. Full power, AC, Swivel buckets, console, and just about every option offered on the car. It was never really that fast (it was heavy), but it was a great cruiser. I remember correctly I was able to fit fairly large tires under it without jacking up the ass end, L-60-15's in the back and G-60's in front
73 Laguna 454 from the factory would be 245 hp. Vette would be 275
It was a 396 solid lifter motor, not a 454 (it was late) originally a 350/350 but I had a 396 and a turbo 400 that needed a home. The turbo 350 didn't shift anyway.
Looked like this with a tan interior that matched the roof.
Olds played too but it never made it to production
As long as people are posting pics of their mid 70's GM A-bodies this one was my daily driver for 11 years. 80 mile round trip to work and back every day and every second weekend getting flogged down the quarter mile. Best car I've ever had,almost indestructable.
One of my favorites
That is so sweet! Love the paint on that. Like glass. Hardtop Corvairs look so sleek.
From 2 late 1970's Scientific American magazines...
Is that a REAL Fitch Sprint, or a very nice re-creation of one ?
It was real, nicer than it looks in the picture and sounded great
My daily driver for over 11 years. Sold to fund 55 Chevy project. STUPID STUPID STUPID!!! It was one of the best cars I'd ever owned.
Wasn`t the Cutlass GM`s best-seller for a few years back then ? Still remember seeing my friend`s father come ripping down the street in his brand-spankin`-new 442....man, THAT was a bad-ass ride !
One of the earlier ones....it was before I went in the service, so I`m thinking maybe `65 or `66. It was a 4-speed, and he drove it in the "proper" fashion....his previous car was a `63 Olds Starfire, also a very nice (and fast) car....
I love those, especially the '66s (and '67s) with that tunnel-back recessed rear window. By "proper fashion" I'm guessing you mean the right foot stayed planted when upshifting?
Just looked at some photos, and yeah, his was a `66. He loved to make those Wide Ovals squeal !
