  • So many Mustangs so little time!

    Hi,
    My name is John. I am a Fire Sprinkler Designer.

    Have been driving Olds from back in 1974.

    In the gas shortage back then, People where selling there muscle cars for $500 - $1,000. My friend and I had a ball. Buying, driving and selling some great cars. Who new what they be worth now.

    My car is a 1987 Cutlass creation of me own. Every nut and bolt have been replaced. Highly modified 72 Olds 350. She is fast, strong and handles like an mid 2000's corvette. It has the same brakes +. Lighting Rods.

    Look for some more ideas for my baby.

    Had a old aero package from Watson. Sold on ebay a few years ago. And have slowly been working on my own, with cooling ducts for front and rear brakes. With real world Aerodynamics front and rear. Real hard for the cutlass.

    Take a look at my album and let me know what you think.

    Wow... That is HardCore! I love the paint color against the gold striping & how you took some of the best ideas from various models & morphed them into what you wanted!!

    Looking for ideas??? It doesn't look like there is much more to be done! Start on another one!!!

        Thanks Fader- 88HurstOlds,

        Wait to next summer, I should have my own hand built Aero kit that works! Doc's kit was the only one back in the late 80's when I got it. Use to talk to Doc at Hurst Performance all the time. They where all very helpful there! Still have a bunch of newsletters from them. Even the first one's that are just a sheet of paper folded into thirds and mailed out. I even have the little card, sent with the Aero kit.

        I put the Doc Aero kit on in 2008 with tape. The car look great in the black aero kit against the red. But I wanted something more, Real Aerodynamics and not made ABS plastic.

        The G-body Cutlass is not the ''brick wall'' front end of the early muscle cars. And better than Chevy or Buick G-Body's. I even have some ideas for the rear window drop off. I have gone 137 mph in my Baby, with my buddy's filming me in a corvette. The rear end started lifting up! G-Body Achilles Heel for high speed!

        Start thinking about buying a Monte Carlo SS Aerocoupe rear window and trunk, off of ebay. But it was to much work to cut into my baby. I wanted something that can be bolted on. Though will not be as good as SS Aerocoupe rear window. I love the wing on the car. Have adjusted it many time with deference pedestals to get to work better. Wish I had a wind tunnel or computer program. Doing it the old way Shelby guys did in the early 60's.

        Going to paint mine metallic black. If all go's well and the economy improves, I like to copyright, produce and sell Aero kit for 83-88 Cutlass. There are so many 83-88 Cutlass made.

        The green switch on the dash controls the four ford headlight bulbs. I can have two sets of high beams and one set of low beams all on at the same time. Great for my 2:00 am morning long trips on the empty interstate. Light up the road like daylight. My girl call it Ludacris Lights (From the movie "Spaceballs'' '' Ludacris speed'')

            Not as many Cutlasses left as you think..
            Your car looks stock, I see no aerodynamic changes but looks really nice.
            Also the 20th Anniversary kit is still patented and illegal to reproduce.
            Not owened by GM or Hurst but Joe Hurkra and Jack Watson...

            I know someone that knows Jack, was offered the rejection letter from GM for the 20th anniverary kit...
            Stuff is protected still...

              Sorry, Using the words Aero Kit, was a bad use of words. I am not reproducing Doc"s 20th Anniversary kit. And does not look like it in any way. Or any bodies esles. But an whole new Aerodynamics body panels for the cutlass. Real Aerodynamics!
              Actual performance. For go and show. Will post some picture in the spring.

                Sweet, can't wait to see it.
                Not many people are customizing these cars beyond what was done by the factory/Hurst.
