I was just out for a drive, looking for a shovel I left behind working the other day, and the car looked perfect for a photo. I couldn't resist sharing.

Thanks! Too bad I don't have a garage to put it in. It sits in the driveway. It goes in my friends barn for the winter but I drive it to work most days all summer, and on any long trips we take. For a 36 year old car it's a decent daily driver.

I absolutely love a G-body. Something about those cars is just cool, even if they were under-appreciated (outside the turbo Regal's and GN's). Are you running the stock 350 Olds? I always likes the BOP small blocks, they're just that much more unique than your run of the mill SBC.

Yeah, it's just a stock 350 Olds, pulled from the junkyard in 2007. It has an edelbrock performer intake and headers but otherwise stock. I also swapped in an overdrive transmission and 2.93 gears. It's not a powerhouse but it will do good donuts and get good gas mileage on the highway.

Long term maybe I'll LS swap it, but for now it doesn't seem like the engine is going to wear out anytime soon.

Thanks. My dream car used to be a 72 442, now it's probably just my current car with some nicer rims and a lot of upgrades. I've been driving the same car since 2007, and before that it was an 87 Cutlass I bought when I was 18. I'm 36 now. I always have an 80s b body Caprice for my winter beater.

It just gets better! My one and only B-body was a '91 Caprice with the 5.0 TBI. Terrible car (by no fault of it's own) but boy did I love driving it. There's just something about driving a rolling couch that can't be beat. Those car's do nothing well, but everything satisfactory.

I can't argue with that. What it does best is just continue to run year after year, with almost no money put into it. My 83 only has 240k miles, but the last one I had to scrap 10 years ago was an 89 TBI 5.0 with 332k miles. It ran great still but the floor and frame rusted out. My 83 is still like new underneath.

That's the awesome thing about those old boats, just like Panther cars. Rust is far and beyond that kills them, long before the running gear gives out. Are they fancy? Tightly screwed together? Top of the line, ahead of the curve? Absolutely not. That's why they WORK. With so little to go wrong, it's almost impossible to have a catastrophic and expensive failure.

Sure is nice and thanks for sharing. My friend has a black 87 Regal turbo t-type that he bought new. It gets driven 6 months out of the year and now has 72k miles on it. cheers
