    I have a Cutlass Supreme I plan on making a daily driver. It currently has a 3.8 v6 with a 3spd auto but I’m thinking of doing a LS swap or getting a Oldsmobile v8 engine for it haven’t decided but I think a stock ls with some bolt ons would be nice in that car for daily duties. Need to get a plan together for it

    Here is my Cutlass it doesn’t need much to be a decent car again it does have some rust in the roof I’m going to have to fix because of a stupid vinyl top. The new cooper cobras I bought for the Indy will probably wind up on a set of stock Cutlass wheels and go on the Olds.

    I got it very very cheap. It’s a solid car other than some rust around the rear window and a couple spots on the top. I have another Regal up in VA I need to go pick up just haven’t done it yet

    Those t/a wheels look good on there even though they are glaringly shiney compared to the rest of the car. Same size as the oe?
