Oldsmobile Cutlass dicing it up – Click above to watch video after the jump

From the file marked “When Men Were Men,” we have this Car & Track review of the 1973 Oldsmobile Cutlass 442. Sure Clarkson can work his way around a 458, but let’s see him handle this baby: 455 cubic inches with a four-barrel carb, 225 horsepower, 0-to-50 in 5.5 seconds, 198 feet to stop from 70 mph and more body roll than a Carnival cruise ship in a Category 5. And check out the reverse spin test to gauge body roll – that’s how you review a car. Follow the jump for a rollicking look at car history.
