    I've been viewing some threads and there are some friendly people and great cars here.
    My interests fit right in. I've done a bunch of work to my 68 Olds cutlass convertible and enjoy driving it regularly.

    I bought my car in rough shape 15 years ago, put in a full floor pan and ditched the inline 6cyl/2 speed auto for a 455/2004R combo. When the 455 had some problems I decided to get serious. Here's where I am now:
    GM connect and cruise LS3/430 with 4L65E, Aluminum drive shaft and 3.55 10 bolt posi
    Jeep grand cherokee steering box upgrade w/fully rebuilt links
    Hotchkiss upper and lower control arms with lowering springs in front
    Dropped spindle with standard height ball joints
    UMI upper and lower in rear
    Stock for the era sway bars front and rear
    15x7 rally wheels with 235/60R15 tires
    Front conversion disks with rear drums
    SpeedHut OBDII gauges
    Morris 3 point belts in front. (looking for 3 point belt options these led me to this forum)

    Looking forward to doing an 18" wheel and tire package along with C5 or similar brakes
    Also interested in a vintage air
    I'll be looking for some info here especially on the wheels/tires/brake combo.

    My thoughts have been centered around safety, reliability, and performance with reliability mostly covered.



    The photo was taken in Bowling green at the start of power tour. I've long hauled it twice, once in this car and it ran flawlessly.

    hey you just made your car amazing. It's paint, it's color, it's rim ohh my goodness. I just love your ride. I have big ride's like SUV's, GMC's and trucks. i'm a that kind a lover. So now I am looking to get a customized car. I will get one when, but for now looking for the ideas once you just shared. Can you suggest me or inbox me your ideas?
