“Pedalgate” has kept me a bit busy, at the expense of Curbside Classics. But that and the “lawyergate” story kept our servers running as hot as the flames on this Cutlass, and we smashed TTAC’s recent page view record yesterday, with 114k page views. And the NY Times is using our pictures of pedal guts. Well, I’m getting a little tired of looking at pedal insides; how about a whole, (or almost whole) car? And to keep on the theme, how about one that broke records as well as jumps, literally.
The Olds Cutlass Supreme Coupe story is huge, and one that we’ll cover properly in several segments. It broke through all kinds of sales records in its heyday. But this Cutlass Coupe literally jumps, at least according to its owner. I get the general concept of jumping cars, but I’m not exactly familiar with how organized “jumping” takes place. Is it a competition? Or just a demonstration? I had a snippet of conversation with the owner of this “jumper”, but not long enough to get much more than the obvious. So I’m hoping someone out there will educate this jumping ignoramus.
