1975 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme
The "Crash Cab"
Started life as a stripped down shell of a 1975 Olds Cutlass. Body-off build with the frame plated in 1/4" steel front to rear. The body shell itself is sheeted in 14-gauge steel for added strength since the figure eight racing series are full-contact with bumping, banging, and spinning allowed and encouraged. Finished the build last year and has a little over one season on the car now.
