1989 Olds Quad 442. A revival of the famous Olds 442 nameplate. This one being 4 cylinder, 4 valves, 2 cams. I lusted after this car when it made its debut and I was all of 13. While the cars of the late 80's and most for the 90's today get a bad rap, when this thing came out it seemed like the beginning of a new dawn for enthusiast cars. It was a huge departure from the smogger V8' and V8's minus 2 (early V6) that struggled to get out of their own way. The Quad 4 was a Revelation nd a breath of fresh air. It revved, it made all sorts of power and it was fast...damn fast. To this day, I still find it an attractive car, especially in red.

The original Quad 4 was a fantastic engine. It's a shame it was never put in a proper chassis.

It was watered down during its lifespan, mostly because of NVH concerns.

No, it's a Peraves Monotracer, and it's Swiss. The Carver is a leaning trike.



It has been licensed in the U.S. to Persu and their website states they expect to have production vehicles on the road sometime in 2014.

Sounds about par for the course at the General. Although sometimes they work in reverse of that plan. Case in point, the Fiero. It started off as a good idea poorly executed. Then it slowly improved only to be killed as they finally got it nearly sorted.

Mind you, I do not nor ever have had an urge to own a Fiero. I did however have a misguided friend who owned two.

It is. The General can do brilliant things, just not all in the same car.

Yes, that is a Carver, as is the last non-car photo I posted. However, the first one is not a Carver, but a Monotracer. Look at the pictures, they aren't the same.
