Do you have a preference between the regular bodies an the SS? If I see any with for sale signs I'll take some pictures and get the owners info for you.

Maybe even a 70'
If i saw the car up close in person,(instead of an inky dink pic) I'd know.

Regardless now I'm going to Build the Reminiscent Beast from my Hay Day.
the 80's.

I know exactly what you mean about the wife,& kid car.
I had a 86' Firebird,(5speed yeah baby) that all of my kids had ridden in,
(previous marriage ending in a bitter divorce etc...) at one time or another
and my second wife & I were rearing two of our own in it.

Anyway we out grew it,there just wasn't enough room & before back surgery it was getting difficult to get in & out of it for me,(being 6'4" & all).
It was going down hill fast as well,(wrecks etc...)

So we finally got rid of the Old Beast.
Well I'm not ashamed to say I wept as I saw it going down the road
with the front end hoisted up in the air,as the wrecker slowly pulled out.

Somebody needs to tell those guys to drive faster!

Woops wrong post!

It was defiantly different,I remember my legs sliding up under a tremendously deep dash,the floorboards on those old Rod's seem as long as a football field.

You could literally feel that 454 rumble like it was right there in the ****pit.
The Vibration's it put out would massage your feet & legs.
You'd just have to feel it to know.

When you were in it YOU WERE IN IT like it was wrapped around you.
Even though it was a Torque Monster it was all good because you were cradled in those killer (deeeeeeeeeep) Swivel seats.

It didn't slamdance,or slide you around the a truck,your body didn't try to role out of the seat like in most other cars...

Nope when you got on it it just sucked you down a little deeper into the seat
like a Jr. Sumo sat down on your lap,but on only felt the pressure on your back side.

That beast just squatted down & GOT ON IT!
You were so snug you didn't even need a seat belt at all!!!

Those Old Cars were BUILT TO ROMP,not just the Motor,& Tranny
THE WHOLE THING from the ground up.

Everybody ought to ride in one at least once in their life just to "Really"
know what it feel's like.If they hav'nt they have no idea what it's like.

THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING LIKE IT TODAY!

You know it! If you get a pic of one let me know.

The cams are handy as all get out,we've had one for a little over a year now & we've taken well over 2,000 pics with ti!

Ghetto Jet

I can make a regular one into an SS,can't I?

If you REALLY like that Old Monte,I could make your Teeth Sweat.

I know where there are two of them as we speak,a 70' & a 71'.
The 71' is Black,but had an Engine Fire Take out the top,& Toast the Hood.
The 70' Body is Straight with no Interior to Speak of.

You can Buy both of them together as a pair with a SUPPOSEDLY running,
(original?) 350 for $1000.00

Huckster

No problem,sorry it won't work,but Glad I could help.

Slant3

I believe "Every Car Has a Color",(accept for the ugly ones,they're just plain ugly no matter what you do to them.They were born ugly,& they're gonna die ugly).

And some cars look good in several color's,but most cars have one particular color that is just right for it.

The 80's Cutlass is one of those cars that looks good in several colors,
but it looks best in two.If you like Dark shoot it "Charcoal Grey",(with a black top) if you like Light soot it "Bright White",(with no top).

Charcoal Grey,Sleeper/Cruiser.

Bright White,Get the **** Out'a may way!

P.S. If you shoot it Bright White,Jack it Up in the rear end.With that color & the Body Lines of the Cutlass it alludes a "Funny Car" look.

Way Cool,Way Cool,Waaaaaaaaaay Cool.

my Cutless Frame "WITHOUT MAJOR COMPLICATIONS"?

That's too weird. My '78 Monte will be riding on an (gulp) '81 Buick Regal frame. Identical frames. Same body mount holes, the same side to side measurements, and the same overall length. Same frames. Olds Gutlesses, Regals, Pontiac Grand Prixs, and the Monte Carlo are all the same frame from '78 to '88.

In a while, Chet.
