    A pair o' Oldsmobiles.



    Here's an attempt at a look. I tried to find something which was in the old ones, and the one constant look was the two grilles. I tried to carry that on while differentiating it from the other two grilled brand, Pontaic. Otherwise, positioned above Saturn, sold in Saturn dealers. 442 has four, four and two of something, but I haven't figured out what yet, apart from all wheel drive.

    I Believe 442 at one point stood for 4 barrel carb, 4 on the floor, and dual exhaust, as for all wheel drive, the Olds 442 was rear wheel drive.

    I recognize that. However, you're going to get laughed off the market if you revived the name with carbs and 4 speeds, since that technology is obsolete. It still needs a four, a four, and a two. Four wheel drive, four exhausts and two turbos is a much more appropriate formula for a MODERN performance car, and that's why I revived the name for my little idea.
