#1225829 Will our cars become classics?

Posted by cdn_olds_94 on 05 October 2016 - 02:38 AM

The comments on that are they way I see public opinion on our chassis, I still say there won't ever be any value to them as collector cars.

Our cars are "accidental" finds for most people and they fall in love or hate with them but the average person only has passing knowledge of them at best.

It's their loss really, the W-Body has so much to offer and so many different directions they can be built.

Everybody has a story about the time they got smacked down by a CamEro or some other "Sports" car: "I ran with it", "I would have had it but...", "That thing wasn't stock", to this day I've never been with a group of guys where somebody admitted having their ass handed to them by a W-Body out of embarrassment. But we all know it happens and with some frequency.

 

I like the term " accidental finds ". That is how I got my 94 Olds Cutlass Convertible. I liked the vert in the Valvoline commercial a few years back, and thought that If I ever came across one at a descent price I'd think about buying it. Well, my son's friend from high school's father pass away suddenly two years ago. He owned a 94 vert. His kids didn't want it so they offered the car to my son for 1000 dollars, and he bought it. This car was in amazing shape. Never winter driven and just a bit of surface rust on the back quarters. But it was in need of a new convertible roof. My son put the car in storage for the winter, and in the spring offered it to me for what he paid for it. Since getting the car, I've fixed the quarters, and replaced the roof. and fixed a couple of other little things on the car. I love this car. It drives great and once on the highway, the 3.4 DOHC really kicks in and she just sails along. Yea, some parts are hard to find, but I haven;t had any problems finding everyday stuff. Body parts are another thing, and I've been thinking about looking for another one for a parts car.  Will these cars be collectors items ? Who knows, maybe, maybe not. But I'm having fun with mine.

#1241749 when is it time to ditch a car

Posted by Imp558 on 22 July 2017 - 01:45 PM

You always have a car payment. Wether it's money outright on a newer car or repairs on an older car. I'd love to see pictures of it, that's a survivor.

Posted by Imp558 on 26 May 2016 - 05:44 AM

This thread is beyond asinine, I own a toilet but I don't shit my pants and make a mess out of convenience. Nor do I declare how well my previous pant pooping endeavors worked out to justify my actions.

#1246809 Not a W- Body, but still an Oldsmobile...

Posted by cdn_olds_94 on 14 October 2017 - 01:27 AM

I just bought a second Oldsmobile. She;s a 1955 Holiday Super 88 2 Door Hardtop. I've always wanted a collector car, and this one fit the bill. I still have the 94 Cutlass convertible and will bringing both to Home Coming in 2018.

The ugly thing here are older articles written by people no longer active on the forum...it's going to be all but impossible to repair the damage.

#1238155 DOH, pulled a connector while filling up freon

Posted by 95whitevert on 17 May 2017 - 03:12 AM

YAY!  Thanks for the info.  BTW I just put the convertible back on the road.  It has been about 2 years since I driven it more than a couple of miles.  Completely re-did the underneath, replaced the fuel lines, gas tank, brake lines and removed about hundred pounds of rust from everything else under there and then coated the entire bottom.  Replaced the rear window moldings, got the interior lights working, fixed the windshield molding and replaced the antenna.  Hopefully that keeps her on the road for a few more years.  While she isn't 1969 Cutlass, I see more of them on the road than I do my 1995 :)

#1231520 F Body Brake Upgrade

Posted by 94 olds vert on 05 February 2017 - 04:54 PM

Get the 06 impala dual piston brakes, they should bolt right up

Yup, and then get GM rotors. GM Part number is 18021015 . You will need different caliper brackets,GM P/N 18029829. That is a cheaper, and just as effective brake upgrade. Edit: that is all 12 inch stuff from GM on the same platform so it bolts up. The Fbody swap requires drilling, threading, and who knows what else.

So one "bad egg" and you suddenly swear off all grand prix gtps? With that attitude you'll quickly run out of cars to buy. Sent from tapatalk

I think you're better off leasing a car so you don't have to worry about warranty issues out of warranty or major maintenance repair.

#1226394 Will our cars become classics?

Posted by GnatGoSplat on 18 October 2016 - 09:26 PM

I think in 10-15 years, these cars will be about as sought after as an AMC Matador, Dodge Diplomat, or Ford Granada.  Well, maybe not, those were at least RWD...

A chance meeting with a fellow gear head at the storage place my wife uses, and I'm the new owner of a 0 mileage 3.4 L DOHC crate motor. Price was right, 800 bucks.
