Oldsmobile Cutlass Hurst & Pace Car Apparel and Accessories by Legend Lines

“Oldsmobile”Hurst is a name forever linked to the golden age of muscle cars. George Hurst's company produced a long list of performance parts for both factory models as well as aftermarket installation, becoming most famous for their shifters which were quickly adopted as the coolest gear selectors on the street and strip by an entire generation of gearheads. Hurst worked closely with a number of automakers in the 1960s and 1970s, but its most long-lasting relationship was with Oldsmobile. In fact, Hurst Performance didn't just manufacture parts for Olds, it also ended up producing an entire series of special models that carried its name. The Hurst/Olds stayed on the scene from the glory days of the muscle machine era all the way to the early '80s, and in doing so helped establish a legend that still carries weight with enthusiasts today. With a huge field of 40 cars having met the qualifying requirements for starting, track founder Carl Fisher reasoned that this might be too many for the typical standing starts then in vogue. He believed it would be safer instead to lead them around on one unscored lap at approximately 40 or 45 mph and then release them to the flagman as he pulled into the pits. This is believed to have been the very first mass rolling start for any automobile race anywhere in the world and quite possibly the first use of a pace car for a major event. The Oldsmobile Pace Cars were a large part of the Greatest Racing Spectacle on Earth, the Indianapolis 500! Oldsmobile share a long history of pace cars throughout the years. Starting in 1949, with ex-pilot Wilbur Shaw accompanied by Jack Wolfram, chief engineer at Oldsmobile in a Rocket V-8 powered 88's, through the 70s with the 1970, 1972, and 1974 Cutlass, to end with the 2001 Oldsmobile V6 Bravada SUV...
