  • Re: What does your car need b4 the power tour?

    Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo, that's why I said 'avoid'!!! :D He was a total hack and I kept breaking muffler hangers. If you can't weld those, what the hell CAN you do?

    I just remembered...Miller Automotive (the place that did the C10 exhaust that we are happy with) is owned by an Olds enthusiast. He may be worth a look.

    My bad, I missed the "avoid" in your post. LOL.

    I'll give Miller a call in the spring when we get the car here. It's got the factory Olds megaphone tips on it that go through the bumper and I want to make sure that those are kept on the car.

      If you can weld I recommend Summit Racing® Universal Rod Builder Exhaust Kits SUM-670146

      I wish I was a good welder. I'm more of a hack so I'd rather have a professional do this job.

        Maybe it’s time for headers on the Cutlass? The new ones are sure nice compared to back in the day when they leaked and stuff.
        I don't think Donna wants to put headers on it. It's got the fancy factory Olds manifold/headers on it now.

          Tell him Adam with the Marauder and all the Crown Vics sent ya. He's done a few jobs for me - anything I don't wanna do myself usually goes to him.

                I made a list. It's pretty short, to be honest...I think we are damn near ready.



                Hell, some of these are cosmetic, and that's like polishing a turd...



                I might throw some new shocks on the front just 'cuz.

                  Everything has been covered from tires, AAA, chow, cash to music. Nowadays having the Waze App is a must.

                    Looks like we're going to head up to Michigan next week so we'll get the seat reupholstered so that will be one thing off the list.

                      over the fall season, engine was rebuilt.....inspection revealed metal in oil, a couple of cam lobes destroyed, metal scoring on cylinder walls....anyway, engine rebuild is done and dyno'd...would like to have valve covers spiffed up (son-in-law does powder coating), and maybe one seat re-covered; other than that, once it comes out of storage, should be good to go....I hope........rexx!

                          I've heard that the proving grounds have gone back to not letting anyone in there that isn't an employee.
