Class of '78. Proper Sport steering wheel since added, has aluminum hood and Buick Turbo Coupe spoiler (as shown above, too!). Got lots of attention at the Griot's Garage Goodguys meet in Raleigh, last month. Only Aeroback on exhibit.

I have to say that I really like of these Cutlass Salons, but damn, you need a tire to fill the wheel wells.

I have a 79 century sport coupe with a Pontiac 400 mild build street car that is fun. Also I enjoy the hood tach on my 78.

Nice sleeper! Bet you surprise a lot Mustangs and Vettes with your ride?
Surprises a lot of them. I respect the torque and plan to get some numbers this weekend, if all goes well. First time at track with her.
