    When I was an engineering student I worked in the Inspection Office at Flint Assembly for one of my rotations. They guy I worked with used to fit/finesse those hoods on the assembly line (mostly with a big rubber hammer).

    Wanderlodge From the rear.

    Old Nascar Tony Stewart sticker on the far right of the bumper.
    Owner says there is a dedicated ice maker on board so I'd say this rig has spent some time at a racetrack infield. 20210415_181755.jpg
    Rear camera has been added as well as nose upgrades.

    My high school girlfriend drove one of these when they were new. The rear quarter windows pop out for ventilation.

    I had a friend in college who had one of those. Changed a water pump and a couple of ball joints in it with him. Also took it through a toll booth at 65.

    The friendship barely outlasted the car.

    I think it was designed to mimic the "Bustle Back" Cadillac of the same era. Except the Cadillac looked acceptable. The Olds was probably more aerodynamic going backwards.
