About “1976 cutlass”

It is an all original car. The car has not been touched except fothe top witch was dyed the same color of the interior. It has a 350 rocket under the hood. Have all documents from the day one it came home. It camer from Long Beach CA. I found this car on ebay and the lady wanted it to go to a good home. I asked if the car was reliable she asked where I was from? I told her Nebraska She snicked and said she has family in MN she would drive the car there if I would like to have it. Many photos later and 350 miles later. We finally met up. The car was better than the photos. 1 hour later the car was on a trailer. And my wife and I were on our way back to NE. Have been to many shows and have taken many 1st and 2nd place awards. By the way I had one in high school that is why I wanted it. This is all little something my family and I enjoy. Thanks

About “Molly”

In 1998 I moved to Indiana to be with my new hubby. I owed a Suzuki automatic 450, but he did not have a motorcycle. So he shared his dream of owning a little sports car convertible. We sold the motorcycle & found this little pimento Triumph Spitfire 1500 in Michigan with only 35k on it. The lady who sold it had owned it for 20 years and did not drive it much, her name was "Molly" so the car assumes the name.

Since buying our little car, we have joined many caravan type tours and become members in a couple of good car clubs. My husband (Howard Baugues) for the past six years has been editor of "Spitfire & GT6 Magazine" after many years in various offices of NASS car club. I am now the Membership Chairperson for NASS "North American Spitfire Squadron" a great group of owners who share restoration information & often share parts they have laying around.
