My Driveway + 1, Part 2

102 posts in this topic

I'm not going to let out too many details at the moment, but me and my dad are going to pick up a car tomorrow. I'll give you a hint: It's RWD, a GM product, has a vinyl top, and is older than I am.

I'll fill in the rest once it's in our possession. I'm anxious to drive this beastalicious piece of machinery. :P

---------------------

What it is, info about it, and pics in post 14/15.

That Actually leaves a lot of options. A B-body maybe? Hmmmm? Not that I would be biased to lean towards that direction.

I thought I remember you talking about a Cutlass a while back, so I'll guess that.

You would be correct, Sir.

It's a 1984 Cutlass Supreme in Dark Maple Red Metallic. It comes complete with a 307ci 4 barrel V8, 2.14 rear axle, limited slip differential, bucket seats, rallye wheels, AM/FM radio, and the coveted vinyl top. Bought it for $450 from the original owner. It's been sitting for over 2 years. Included, was the original window sticker and all the manuals, guides, and brochures. It needs a tiny bit of work, mostly in the form of a tune up as it cuts out at times. My dad tried to clean the carburetor a bit. The vinyl roof is pretty tattered, as well. The paint, originally looked quite faded, but after 4 hours of washing and waxing (oh, are my arms and chest ever sore), it doesn't look too bad. Not nearly as shiny as the other vehicles in our driveway, but enough so not to look flat. There's a few rust spots, but nothing too major. The interior is pretty much spotless, save for the cracked steering wheel and ghetto shift knob. Most everything works. The exceptions being the A/C, the third brake light, and the power antennae. On the road, it rides with a jittery float. The brakes are mushy, but stop decently. The steering is about as numb as it gets. Power-wise, it's not the most powerful thing there ever was, but it has decent torque. It's not what I'm used to, but it's not bad. Fun, in an odd way. :P

Now onto the pics... a few detail shots:

After I finally finished cleaning it up. It got dark as I finished, so these pics aren't of the greatest quality. I'll have better ones for tomorrow:

It's a beauty. Very nice. Price is a steal. The third brake light is an aftermarket deal. They weren't installed by the factory until 1986.

Am I reading that right? Only 432 miles!

As Chris mentioned, you may want to add 100k. :D

Any big plans for it, OldmobBV?

Perhaps a paintjob, some wider wheels/tires, an extensive engine cleansing... and a CD player may be in its future. :P Edited by blackviper8891

WOW! Congrats to you sir. Welcome to the Oldsmobile family. That is a great looking Cutlass. A paint job would really boost it. What work does it need? Nice photos too. Who will be driving the vehicle in the family? Congrats to you and your family sir...

There is indeed a special feel in an Oldsmobile.......

VIPER! Finally, you got a real car! I guess you and your dad will check it over good, after a car sits for a while, things tend to dry rot and rust, whatnot. Very cool... and I am totally jealous over the price.

Please don't Donk it!
