Good looking Olds. The paint looks really nice. My only question is why didnt you use a olds motor? Was it a 305 from the factory?

looks pretty good. nice an clean.

my favorite GM was a 1980 monte carlo i had in Ft Stewart GA. wish i still had it just for a daily driver. i would have put an EFI vortec in it with a OD trans and LSD'd the rear an called it good. good luck with the olds. i had a GF who had an 83 or 4 with a v8 an a 2bbl. nice backseat!!!

Dude, sweet Olds...I always liked that body style...I found an 87 near my house for 995 but I don't have the space for a second car...maybe over the summer...

Yeah Willy, the back seat is like a couch ;D
I also had an 80 monte. It didn't handle my abuses to well, but it was a fun car

RED90RC, if you come acrossed another deal like that, take it. One of the really nice things about these cars is that the junkyards are loaded with treasures for them, so they are really cheap to keep around.

i really liked the 4 coil suspension on it. cush ride. but the plasty baby bumpers and crap chevy dashes were a turn off. mine had a sun roof too.

Small update on the cutlass;

my goals for this winter were- transmision/shift kit, higher stall torque converter, electric fan, and install better gears in the rear (2.41's now, I want 3.73).

I have the fan installed, I purchased a 2500 rpm stall, and should be getting the tranny and shifft kit in the next week or two. the rear end may be wishfull thinking for this winter, $$ is tight.
