Vehicle 1987 Oldsmobile, Cutlass
“PA Que Sepan”
Individuals CC, Phoenix
The legend of a car comes down to its reputation on the road. In fact, the word on the streets is a very literal description of the way knowledge spreads about the finest cruisers out there. It was this word-of-mouth form of communication that burned our ear in Arizona, sending us on an immediate quest to follow the hot lead we had received about a top of the line G-body. After seeing this bad boy in action, we knew it deserved a feature in our Back Bumper section.
When Raul Guerra got the chance to pick up this Cutlass, he jumped on the deal, as a $500 investment was too good to pass up. He also knew exactly what he was going to do with this car. He planned to build a clean street hopper. Fortunately for Raul, the fact that he is a wiz at installing hydraulics meant that this goal was definitely within reach. He took on the challenge and fully wrapped and modified the Oldsmobile’s suspension, in order to allow this car to hit in the sixties while remaining functional enough to cruise the boulevards of Phoenix.
Raul had the car painted by David, of David’s Customs, who sprayed the car in pink metallic base. The PPG finish was then dressed up by Alex of Modern Arte. The results of Alex’s custom striping job would include the name of the car, “Pa Que Sepan,” which translates to “so they know.” With such a strong name silver leafed to the car, Raul had to make sure that the car could deliver on the streets; something it has done easily since its completion. This Cutlass has seen nothing but Back Bumper action on the streets of Phoenix and it’s currently ready to nose up with any of the single pump competition.
