Driving The 1984 Hurst Olds to Dairy Queen
Dad wanted to take two of his classic cars up to the Cruse-in at Dairy Queen, so I volunteered to drive the 1984 Hurst/Olds. He drove the Camaro. It is a really fun car to drive. Fast, smooth, and very easy to steer.

Muscle Car Of The Week Video #69: 1969 Hurst / Olds
http://www.musclecaroftheweek.com - Back before 1970, GM had a mandate that limited the engine cubic inch displacements in midsize "A" body cars like the Chevelle, GTO, and Cutlass 442 to 400 cubic inches. However, George Hurst and Doc Watson were able to create a special version of the Olds 442 that broke the mold, and allowed for an Olds 455 to be installed and sold through Oldsmobile dealers. Called the Hurst / Olds, these cars came to be in 1968, and by 1969, they were widely known for their outlandish styling, fully-loaded option list, and excellent performance. This example from the Brothers Collection is an unrestored survivor, a original car that was driven often... the way Hurst would have wanted!
