I have put a Cloud on a full size mid 80's buick or Olds frame. When you do this you have to use a GM hydroboost for the pb. I use the master cyl & hydroboost from a 85 diesel cad.

You can also sub frame the car. I put a 77 cad seville under my Bently R type. Its the same as a Camaro but has larger ball joints & a 5" wheel bolt pattern & heavier springs.

I currently am just finishing a Shadow on a frame I built using GM front & rear suspension(unit body car). I believe I am the first to do this.

I have pictures of these.

Ps - the small blk chev wts less than the rolls all alum 6.2 to 6.7 litre. The IFS from a Cad is also wts less. I saved 800 lbs on the Shadow.
