While browsing the interwebs, we found this awesome video of an all-wheel-drive 1982 Oldsmobile Cutlass packing a 6.6L LS2 engine with a D-1SC ProCharger and felt the need to share - perhaps we don't quite give them enough love around here. The sweet Cutlass is owned by a guy named Brian King who says that he's owned it for 19 years now.
The 403 cubic-inch power plant under the hood was built by Lingenfelter Performance Engineering and comes complete with a D-1SC ProCharger cranking out 15 pounds of boost. A 4L70E transmission from NTM handles shifting via a Hurst lightning rod shifter, and it is equipped with 3.73 gears as well.
According to Brian, its best quarter-mile is broken down like this: 60-foot in 1.7867, eighth-mile in 6.9359 at 105.09mph, 1000-foot in 8.9202, and quarter-mile in 10.70 at 130mph. This pass in particular was run on Nexen N3000 street tires and the car weighs about 3,850 pounds.
The interior houses Dakota digital gauges in a custom dash, which add to the unique appearance of the Cutlass, as do a set of 18-inch wheels.
So go ahead and check out the video below. You know you want to.
