Mark Stevens 1967 Cutlass SupremeCarolyn
My First Oldsmobile "Carolyn" was a 1967 Cutlass Supreme with a 330 V8. Purchased for me in the summer of 1971 by my folks, for painting their house. The above and below pictures were taken in 1973/74 after I had "customized" the car with Appliance Smoothie Chrome Wheels with BFG TA's, and especially notice the Red White and Blue "dingle balls" around the rear window
Carolyn parked below the house (Columbia River in background)
notice Sidepipes and airdam circa 1976
Glorene and "Carolyn" at Mt. Rainier back when air shocks were in.
I've been stalled for years now on finishing the restoration. I have now purchased a 2nd '67 Cutlass Supreme for it's rust free sheet metal and I am about to get rolling again.
You can watch the progress of the transformation here.
By the way if you
were wondering where the name Carolyn came from, it is because that was what my parents
would have named me if I had been a girl. Since guys always seem to give their cars
girls names, I decided to name it Carolyn. Consequently my wife and I also named our
daughter Carolyn, so that my mother finally got her Carolyn.
