Ghetto Chic: the Oldsmobile Cutlass Sierra Louis Vuitton Limited Edition

Ladies and gentlemen, behold the very definition of ghetto chic: the ‘89 Oldsmobile Cutlass Siera Louis Vuitton Limited Edition, decorated and driven by Steve LaNasa:

this is my car. It all started when the hippie who lived in the apartment behind my house lost his car. As in misplaced. When the cops showed up three weeks later to inform him that it was parked on the next block over, he graciously sold it to me for the low, low price of 250 bucks, having bought a new car in the interim. I promptly scraped off the 800 bumper stickers and went to work. First, I took it to Earl Scheib and had it given a heavy coat of “Chocolate Glitter.” Then I painted the trim, wheel holes, the dash, steering wheel, and all the other interior with a heavy coat of gold enamel. After that, I spent a week in the garage stenciling the logos on with gold spray paint and gold leaf. A quick top-coat at Earl’s and I was good to go. So far, it’s been a really bad influence on me…whenever people take my picture in it, I just can’t seen to keep my finger out of my nose. And when folks pull up next to me at the stoplight and start revving their engines, I just want to floor it. And sometimes I do.

(Note the broken grill)

    That’s the cat’s meow. Looks like a lot of fun. All my favorite cars over the years have been POS’s.

    “Chocolate Glitter,” hell yeah. Sounds like a stripper name.

    Haha- I also bought my first car from a hippie for 200 bucks and then did my own paint-job on it. Sounds like you put a bit more time into this one though. I had a ’78 (i think) mustang 4-cylinder which basically had none of the power or style of a normal mustang, having been made just after and in response to the oil embargo. This 20-year-old-lemon lasted me a year or so until I finally killed the transmission. Once I was stuck in a parking lot with the car not starting, and a helpful policeman hit the starter… Read more »

    Well, the can’t-keep-finger-out-of-nose-when-photographed statement makes me think this guy is being a deliberate dork, so I won’t bother insulting him.

    Oh what the heck! What the douche is up with him?
