    455 out of Ninety-Eight Going into 1980 Cutlass G Body

    Are you planning to keep the 7.5" rear end? These are relatively weak, and they also came with really tall gears, possibly as high as 2.14. Neither one of these is an immediate deal-breaker, but if/when you replace it, you'll also need to shorten the driveshaft. If you're planning to go with...

    HELP Computer limits

    It's my understanding that the reason for the computers on these cars, in conjunction with the mildly-built stock motors, was for economy and idle. It's kind of pointless to try to reuse the computer if you're going for performance, particularly with a non-stock motor of a larger displacement...

    What did you do to your Olds powered vehicle today?

    That sucks... Unrelated, but one time I had a car on a friend's lift. It was a two post lift, with two arms on either side that reach out to the frame rails. It was a freshly painted car, top and bottom, and we used soft pads to protect the frame at the contact points. Obviously, you place...

    What did you do to your Olds powered vehicle today?

    Won't a 307 or 350 manifold fit on a 260?

    My best Oldsmobile tool

    I'm lazy though, I don't like hunching and moving around the rims. Plus, it's easier to get an even coat when they're spinning.

    Supreme Speed Salon

    Wow, it looks great. Is that what the motor looked like when you pulled it??

    Cars you've sold

    Cool story, and nice that you got to sell one and keep one. As far as the "keeper" concept, I've gotten to the point where if I don't drive a car enough, I sort of lose my bond with it, and then it's time for it to go. This is especially true if it's pristine and worth a bunch of money. I...

    Warning Buzzer

    You didn't say anything about the ignition key. This is how the buzzer is supposed to work, when the key is in the ignition and the driver's door is open. If it's doing this any time the driver's door is open, regardless of the key being in the ignition, then it's likely the switch in the...

    Fluid Film!

    I don't know how I haven't come across this stuff yet. I'm an avowed rust-o-phobe, I'm always looking for the best ways to avoid/eliminate/roll back rust, and yet, I never discovered Fluid Film until a couple days ago. I've always tried to keep a step ahead of rust on all my daily drivers...

    Funny stuff found on the internet

    What kind of a dog IS that? My German Shepherd says "WTF!? Hey, how ya doin'? Where's the skunk?" My cat says "In restitution for all the times you wanted to give me attention when I was young and cute and I wanted nothing to do with it, you must now give me constant attention, even when you...

    Mixed Breed

    That's the definition of "Oldspower", nothing to forgive. :D

    Self-Inflicted Wound

    This sucks, sorry you're having to deal with the fallout. I have a buddy, a self-proclaimed "non-car guy". He bought a newer vehicle, because they're "reliable". At some point, I got the impression he hadn't had an oil change in a while. I asked him how long. He said "oh, 20k miles". ...

    Someday I hope to be out there by you. I was looking at some areas in Indiana just outside of the "metro area", but the commute would be brutal. So meanwhile, I'm stuck on my micro-compound here in the concrete jungle. The dimensions of your lot seem to be strangely long and narrow, is this...

    It always rains here in the concrete jungle, so car-related things are on hiatus. I have a dog, and a decent sized fence all around my yard except for one area, where the fence was particularly low. This area happens to adjoin with my weird neighbors who work out in their garden all the time...
