TexasT Just to entice you a little more, that car is likely equipped with a 8.5 in 10 bolt corporate rear axle with bolt in axles. Very strong(not 9 in ford but strong none the less).

With a 2004r swapped in place of the th350 I would bet on low 20 mpg numbers. Very reliable,safe transportation.

455olds Easier to beg for forgiveness than ask for permission. I would do it and my wife would get over it or she would drive it.

spinn Betting you are joking, but her civic is a nice modern 4 dr sedan. I would lose a testicle if i sold her car. She is a 1 or 2 car per family person , that tolerates my hobby.

The skylark is not common like a Olds cutlass , with similar body lines, but with horizontal tail lights. It is a looker , and drove past it this morning. It is not a GS , but with some rwl wall tiger paws it would look sweet. Im still thinking , but it will eventually be a no go.

Are there any links to the buick 350 2 barrel engine around? It is not the 307/350/403 olds engine familiy, but some 3.80 bore/3.80 stroke buick mill.

JGK95 Do your girlfriend / wife a solid...

Sell her car.

spinn It looked nice, and it would have made a nice driver. The woman in my life said, hell no. I could do it, but then I would be in the dog house. Almost wrote the check.

Might be mistaken but dont buick 350's have a square 350 3.80 bore and 3.80 stroke.

LATECH It would make a very nice daily driver for the little lady. Maybe she will go for it.

302 Z28 You are the one that must live with your wife, it's your call to make.

Docc $2200.. I'd grab it..they aren't making many more ..

If it's a clean as you say..some young hot rodder might like a daily driver that could be his project too.

My son and i are doing exactly that. We are on our third..
This time it's a 76 Nova. Pefect inside and out. AC..everything works. We did new water pump..alt..shocks etc. Now offering for sale.
My son learns cars..develops his skill in this hobby..and makes a little to get another project..

Young folks can't afford a 32 ford..but maybe if we help get them involved..there is a strong future in hot rodding..

72 skylark coupe, worth it

I have a number of vehicles. 3 total cuda, c10 truck, and integra. My girl would kill me if I brought home another. Every once in a while, life sets you up for a treat. At the corner gas station is a 1972 skylark coupe , red with white interior. No rust and clean under body. A 350 2bbl and 8.2 differential base model. It is very clean, but has 110k. 2200 takes it. Should i? My garage is full, but there is a carport behind the shed. Feel kind of stupid about this. Would you grab it?

I do all my own work and would like to put a spare Qjet on, a small cam , mill the heads, I have 4 tiger paw uniroyal 225/60's in the shed, Even have a pair of glasspacks, etc. I have a collection of parts from swap meets. It could be a nice musclecar.

This pic is not it but looks the same.
