    well....... here it is. this is what I will begin working on this winter

    1978 olds cutlass salon 4 door sedan. body looks good, rust free.
    has body color rally wheels w/trim rings
    nice interior, I'm going to leave it as is, only adding my oil press,water temp,and volt gauges.

    Nice! Did you check the rear frame horns. They rot like crazy back there.

    yes, looks good. has been in a building for about 4 years
    was touchy getting it home, had no brakes at all. (master cyl must have gone bad from sitting, it had brakes when I drove it 4 years ago into this same building for the older couple I got it from)

    Nice, sounds like you got a good body/frame to start with. How long is that thing stem to stern?

    nice boat indeedy. you gonna stick that beast of a motor in it? I'm imagnining it's already got a nice sized v8 in it already, but stock isn't ever enough... Then again, I would love to see 550 horsies in an S10 like you wanted to do.

    I was bored, so I began prepping it today for the removal of the tired v6 and trans

    I'll snap a pic in the morning

    I found the original sales invoice when it was bought new, purchase price in 1978: $6599.94

    well, here's the ugly,greasy v6, beiing readied to be pulled.
    I removed the header panel, and will remove the core support, so all I'll have to do, is pull straight out the front, to save having to hassle with hood removal/alignment
