not bad, but the hilborn streeet scoop just dosn't do the car justice. not to mention, the flat black paint is likely covering up shoddy bodywork, that green looks like JD green, so I'd say it was painted on a tight budget.

well im considering it, it has a 350,with 4 speed, tunnel ram and 2 four barrel 450cfm carbs,line lock, would it look better with just the carbs and air cleaners instead of the scoop?

Love it. You wouldn't be afraid to drive a car like that daily. If you got a little nick on the fender you wouldn't be crying for days as opposed to a 14 coat candy color job.

Meh ... it's OK. I like shiny ... but to each his own.

It definitely needs a "This ain't your daddy's Oldsmobile" bumper sticker.

PI71,

What about the dent on the drivers side of the hood? And aren't the wheels off of a Chevy I think these are called Rally Sport wheels.

I think it looks good. I'd just paint the flames all the way up the hood

What is that car, exactly?
I'd guess at 1965 Olds F85?

I like it but would ditch the scoop and the green paint.

OK, you asked so don't get all pissy when I give you my opinion.

You are ruining a decent car. Those green flames have that "dumb hick" look and the car would look soooo much better without them. To justify putting a hole in your hood, the car really has to be a screamer. Those ugly *** flames in conjunction with that idiotic scoop have that, "I was drunk when I did this" look.

That body style is nice. The car has lots of potential but remember; LESS IS MORE, and when in doubt, DO NOTHING.

Oh, and one more thing: You spending lots of time making your car ugly and you don't even bother taking out the dent in the hood. First things first man. Fix the damned dent, get rid of those horrifically ugly flames, then find a nice looking low profile scoop and trash that chrome eyesore.

Oh and another thing...LOL.... Yer 35 years old?! That car looks like it was modified by a 15 year old punk, retarded kid.

Sorry, I hate to see a nice car being trashed like this...

If potential then more info is needed, like year model, condition under the skin and price.

Edit: BTW I do like the older OLDs mid size cars. Reminds me of the first 442s.
