We had this car in darker blue with the 3.8L. Once it was given to my older brother he rented an engine hoist and put the v8 powertrain in when he was 19. Too bad rust took its toll so quickly, was good to us otherwise.

Here's my trivia on this.  The '75s and 76s came standard with the 4.1 liter 250 ci L6.  I've seen a couple.  Mostly in the '75s.  Advertised for $3,999 and with no air.  I'd have taken one off their hands.  Just for '77, the 3.8 liter 231 ci V6 was standard.  It was odd firing and I wish they had never put them in there.  Just say I came across the big Cutty like these with the inline 6, I'd gladly have kept it.  How can you destroy a Chevy inline 6?  It's not easy.  On the other hand, Regal/Century used the odd firing 3.8 liter 231 V6 in '75, '76,  and '77.  And it was unfortunate to see a rare and beautiful Regal S/R coupe with the trestle shifter between the buckets sometimes powered by one.  I didn't have a problem with 3.8s from 1978 on, when the crankshaft revision made for smooth idling and an inherently more durable engine.  I also feel that the Regal/Century should have always had the 260 V8 option if the LeMans/Grand LeMans always had it in those same years.  That made no sense.  Pontiac had something like 5 engine choices for the slower selling vehicle among GM's opera windowed coupes.

The interest yield on the 10-year treasury note fell below the interest rate on the 2-year treasury note. This is called a yield inversion and when it happens it is a strong signal of a coming recession. The last time it happened was summer 2007. 

If you want to read more into it, there is a better explanation here:
