Maybe I’m just on a big car or Olds kick lately, but I absolutely love the sleeper vibe of this car. It’s got a great, unassuming color, black steel wheels with dog dishes and raised white-letter tires, and the perfect stance. I also like the juxtaposition of the airy bubbletop greenhouse and the relatively slab-sided (albeit sculptured) body. It has a real old-school hotrod feel to it without being contrived or overdone. It also has lots of new parts, and if the “minimal Ohio rust” isn’t as bad as it sounds, this is a real steal for a car you won’t see at every cruise-in.
