Seriously, why did they choose this car to destroy? It was rare when new, and now is extremely rare, and could have yielded parts for someone else. There are plenty of older cars that were made in the hundreds of thousands that could have been crushed by this tank (Taurus/Camry/Accord/ even the more popular Cutlass Supreme or Ciera), and they choose a 34 year-old Olds Cutlass Salon. AAARRRRRGGGHHH!

That's what Hollywood is best at doing, destroying old and rare cars. :mad:

First, filmmakers are left-wing environmentalists that despise gas-guzzling old cars with poor emission controls.Second, filmmakers are not into cars.they don't know know or care if its rare or not.Old cars are impractical, obsolete, wasteful tools of commuting in their eyes.Filmmakers are passionate about the arts but usually clueless about cars.They lease a new Benz or hybrid every few years and thats the extent to which they have any interest in a car.
These are the same people that spend $5 million on a nice, classic waterfront mansion in great shape just to demolish it and build a gaudy, ugly bigger one.

It was probably a totally unrestorable rustbucket that they dragged out of a scrapyard.

It looks like it was a heaping rust bucket before it got ran over by the tank.

Yes, it was a rusty hulk, but it still is a rare model that could yield parts for another Salon. The parts on this would work on the 1978 Olds Cutlass 442, which is a collectible.

Not rust, just a lack of paint.Glass intact, seats still inside.Rear reflector and passenger side headlight are gone but who knows if they were missing before the studio got ahold of it.
About 6 years ago I encountered a guy who drove one. In the 90s I saw a few around in the Detroit area.This one sadly appears to have neglected over a long period of time. However, I don't think it would have taken too much to restore it.

The problem with such cars sometimes is that even if they are rare nobody wants to restore them. So they stay in scrapyards anyway...

What's wrong with left-wing environmentalists cko? I'm one, and I'm still a car fan. That's an unfair overgeneralization. I'm a Sierra Club member, but I'm also a fan of this site too.

That's purely fake rust (brown paint). Want proof? Fiberglass header panels don't rust.
