Reader Find: Reunited Once Again

Olds Wagon

From Bruce F. – Here’s mine when I brought her home after selling it 12 years ago. Found it in a garage where it had been sitting for 10 years. It took me three months to get her road worthy. I will do the interior and paint work over the winter. I am just going to drive her for now till the cold weather sets in here. The second picture is at her first car show. She’s not getting away from me again!

    Congrats! We had a 70 Cutlass Wagon – 1st car I ever drove. My Girlfriends family had a 70 Vista Cruiser. Loved those Olds!

  2. Fred

    Love the look- a wagon with style.

    Nice! I have owned a number of Vista Cruisers, mostly 455s. My favorite was a brand new ’72 w/455, perf axle, exhaust, big Pos-A-Traction rubber, copper metallic color, loved it. Replaced my 442 due to family. Wish I still owned it.

    I thought all Olds has vista cruiser roof. Guess not.

    Thanks for printing the story guys. I just drove her to the store for food shopping. Everybody wants to know about her. Thanks again. Bruce

    This is not a Vista Cruiser, it is a Cutlass Cruiser. Same platform, different roof-line, but still super cool ride. I got my car from high school, (1971 Olds Cutlass S) 30-years after I sold it last year. She is sitting in my garage, runs better than ever and is never going to be lost again.

    Reminds me of the 70′ Olds Cutlass I restored for my ex-wife. Dam I miss that car!!

      Wives come and go, but Oldsmobiles are forever.

    I had a beige Vista years ago. Wish I still had I’d. Was a cool car. Had a lot of fun in that car. Front and back of it. Lol. Ended up parting it out after too many erie winters.

    For those of us old enough to have been kids when these were new , the idea that people would take an Olds wagon, hell any wagon, to a car show is just plain funny. Different strokes for different folks
