these are the pics of my 1974 cutlass 442 from the time i got her to her present state i will post pics as i get them so bare with me lol this will be a on going post.

these first pics of her when i first got her and before i found out what i was in for lol.

As you can see she was pretty clean and had a vinyl top that would soon change.The vinyl top had a couple tears in it so it was time to remove it and what i found wasnt pretty lol but shes getting better

I love that model! Vinyl tops are a pain in the butt. I have one car with a vinyl top, a 73 LTD 2 door hardtop, and it has always been garage kept so I do not expect any rot there. Oldsmobiles were the best GM seller in the 70s for a good reason, take care of yours. JB
