New here from London Ontario Canada. Sometimes thing just come and find you. I have been looking for a couple of years for a special interest vehicle project and was not really looking for a G Body, looking for something older. I then found out about a 1980 Grand Pix SJ that the original owner was looking to sell. He has not winter driven this car and oiled the body almost yearly so it is in good shape. So I bought it . I went thought the car and other than brakes and tires the car passed the safety without a hitch. However because the car has sat for the past 4 years the rear main seal has started leaking. The 301 has a rope rear seal. because you have to pull the engine and flip it over, pull the crank to do the seal properly and hope for the best i figured that i might just as well do another engine. looking around i realized that an LS swap might just be the best thing to do and that led me here. Looks like a great forum with LOTs of friendly people with tons of know how and ingenuity.
