    Thank you for sharing this video! I wonder why they did not show Custom Cruiser. It was interesting looking back and seeing how “downsizing” was not a great move. The largest car was the Cutlass Supreme at that time at 200 inches. The others were less than 200 inches and Toronado was too small. It was smaller than Cutlass Ciera! That was indeed a different era and different time. It was an interesting look back.

    In 1986,the only Oldsmobile models that offered rear drive, V8 power, & body on frame construction were the Cutlass Supreme Coupe & Sedan, & Custom Cruiser Wagon.
