right now the plans are why the name. going to just flat murder it out and make it run good. and try to make it look good as a nice driver. i broke my back in three places and some days trying to crawl in to a lifted jeep is not as fun as you might think. so this will allow me something i can kind of fall in to. but defiantly need to change to bucket seats. and find out what fit in it and look good.

Hello everybody!
I signed up here a couple of years ago but haven’t posted. I was left this ‘79 Cutlass by a relative. It was converted from diesel & now has a rocket from a ‘78 Delta. My brother did some engine work and I cleaned it up and replaced the hubcaps with classic olds wheels. I thought about selling it because I plan on getting a truck, but I’m getting attached to it and I don’t know if it would be worth it. It’s got 115k miles on it, the a/c is no good and the carburetor needs to be rebuilt.
... so, I’m thinking that I should just enjoy it and drive it as a summer car!
