What a killer match-up this week. You get a well-known monster, that being the 1969 Plymouth Road Runner A12. The Road Runner A12 isn't just a cool lift-off hood and a big 440 6 pack, there's a lot more to that car! Of course, that's all outlined in the video. I totally dig it. The other car is a little lesser known, probably because of the low production numbers and small-block engine. Don't let that discourage you, because that small block is a known giant killer! We're talking about the 1969 Oldsmobile Cutlass S W-31. I'll be honest, I didn't know much about these cars prior to seeing them at the Pure Stocks, but they are nasty! I'd love to find one for myself. What's even sweeter about the featured car is the special order color of, "Powder Blue," which was typically only optioned on the Toronado. Neat. Love that blue interior as well.
