Automotif XCI...

1969 Hurst/Olds
With only 913 cars produced, there's a fair chance that this '69 Hurst/Olds seen rumbling down 54th Street is a plain vanilla Cutlass coupe dolled up via the Year One catalog... Or maybe it's a for-real, no-kiddin' 1969 Hurst/Olds. Either way, it's a hella cool-looking ride.

It's a shame that Detroit designers weren't allowed to use curves anymore after 1974. Compare the car above with the baroque lines of the mid-'70s GM A-bodies.
