    Hey, I’m pretty new to the car community in general. This is my first car, bought and paid for on my own. It’s in pretty nice condition, only 116k on the clock. A pretty nice oil leak and a tire that goes flat but other than that pretty much no issues.

    1994 Cutlass Took a 1st at AACA Nationals

    I was hoping for a 2nd but got a 1st at the AACA Nats Regional Meet last week in Gettysburg, PA last weekend. I guess all that work putting this car back together was all worth it. But the best part was driving the car there and back, about 330 miles each way. I was able to run the trip on ethanol free gas and I got about 26 mpg pure highway, not bad.

    New member with a Buick Regal 95 :)

    Hi! I’m Srdjan, new to your page and wanna share some experience and know-how which i get during fixing my Regal from 95. Bought the car in a relatively bad shape. Was sitting outside for at least 2years without any care. when i bought it, i serviced the whole engine and bring it back to life with fresh new parts. Had several issues with sensors like TPS, IAC and ETC but now driving like a pro and enjoyed it. installed as well the backlight of an Regal GS before facelift (mine is a facelift model 95-96) i love these much more than the stock of facelift. put as well the Grand Prix GTP mesh rims in 16inch which were now painted from white to silver. Gives more an sporty but still stock look. Fitment in back in awsome front naa ok so fare could be less than 1inch more inside but so fare so good.

    New and semi inexperienced,

    Hello everyone! Long time lurker, first time having an account on any forum. I recently bought a '93 Chevy Lumina Z34, and am excited to start my work on it whenever I can. It's currently in another province, at my parents house, so I sadly won't be able to post pictures for a couple weeks. -J

    New member with Regal coupe!

    Glad I found this site randomly and am surprised I got this username. I have a '93 Regal Limited coupe that I've ben slowly fixing up, and it's getting real close to being buttoned up. This is my third W body car and favorite. Had another '92 like this that wasn't anywhere near as nice and a '99 Grand Prix GT (recognize the wheels?). Wondering if I can connect with anyone that has parts cars, leads for parts, info for repairs etc. Have done a lot mechanically and probably this afternoon be replacing rear pads. Have some exterior cosmetic parts coming my way now also but sourcing clips to hold trim on has been impossible.. am hoping some of the old trim clips were salvageable from this trim piece I'm getting. Am thinking of doing rear struts next and maybe the front strut cartridges eventually; am leaning toward KYB for both. With bigger wheels and others in car or stuff in trunk I need slightly more clearance in the rear which KYB complete units should provide. I also need an antenna mast, a new glove compartment door handle, and to figure out e-brake issue (I can see previous owner bought the parts but for one reason or another it's just hanging there zip tied up; may be the one thing I'll have the dealership do but not sure yet). Oh, and a vacuum line from the cruise control has cracked and needs replacement (dealer again? think they said they'd just cut a generic line) as the system won't hold vacuum but does work otherwise. It's in pretty amazing shape and runs great for a '93 with 147,700 miles or so.

    3.1. It’s the SE. Here’s some photos from when I washed it, and a couple from the first couple weeks of owning.

    Thanks for the add. This is my 89 base Grand Prix with the 5 speed. It's been sitting in a field for the last ten years. Still have alot of work to do but it runs well and mostly it's little things like replacing trim parts that rotted off. In early 2000 the car had a ground effects kit put on it and it was to be donated to be a DARE car. Luckily some friends at GM Fairfax and the plant itself volunteered and painted the car in plant. This was right after the buildout for the Grand Prix and the car was being moved North. So this was literally the last Grand Prix ever painted at Fairfax Ks. They also added the wheels from a 2001. After all that time and work the Police Department decided the car had more work in it than it was worth and changed their mind about making it a DARE car. It was returned to the original owner, my dad. He drove the car a little but a blown head gasket got it parked where it stayed till recently. Like I said it has a ways to go. Not quite up to show car status but that's my goal. Thanks for looking

    Got this thing torn down today and cleaned up. Ordered some parts. I may have it running later this week. LQ1 parts are all closeout priced on rock auto, the timing belt was only $2.14!

    Back in the Fold

    Hello, I'm a long-time W-Body fan. The first car I ever bought in 1993 was an 1989 Olds Cutlass Supreme with a 2.8L. I traded it in thinking I wanted something faster like a 19-20 year old does. I've missed it ever since. A 1996 Cutlass Supreme with a 3.1L hit the local Craigslist with only 80K miles completely local to the Chattanooga area. I took the plunge and came back into the fold. I'm excited about having my new weekend cruiser. A couple of low hanging corrections are the outside mirror switch and the power antennae cable. Outside of that, I will start tinkering and tuning because most of the car is 25 years original. Jeremy

    89 CS Taillight Trim Chrome to Black

    This mod is far too simple and unimpressive to warrant this level of procrastination, but procrastinate is what I do best. I've never liked the chrome trim on the 89 Cutlass taillights. Once, I Photoshopped them to black and I decided I like that much better. Terrible photochop, but the point is when I made it, Modified Date: Friday, October 16, 1998. BEFORE Chrome vs black trim AFTER Only took me 22 years, 1 month, and 8 days to get around to getting it done. Don't ask me when I'm going to get that bumper repainted.

    I wrote that, it's true. All Cutlass Supreme convertibles started as hardtops at the Doraville plant, sent to C&C for the conversion and then finished back at the Doraville plant.

    LS4 swap begins

    Alright. Don't get too excited W-body fam. I literally have just pulled the motor from the donor car, a 2006 Impala SS (which by the way, if anyone needs any parts, the rest of the car is being parted out, including full leather interior; PM me) to install into my '98 Monte. I am getting stir crazy due to cabin fever and not having enough snow to go snowmobiling and I'm currently waiting on a contractor to get started on my basement remodel, so I needed something to do to pass the time. I still have thousands of dollars worth of parts to get, including a clutch and flywheel combo, DOD delete kit, LS6 intake among other items. I fully expect this project to take some time, mostly due to finances, so it'll likely not be done until 2022 at the earliest. So, for the time being, I decided to just start playing so I could focus on the custom fabrication, such as motor mounts and wiring and whatnot. But, here's a few pics to show the 284 mocked up anyway.

    a 1994 Cutlass Supreme convertible with exactly 24,999 miles...and a 97 Cutlass Supreme SL 4dr. with 81K that my son who is about to become a first time driver will enjoy. The 94 Convert needs nothing. The 97 SL 4dr needs the left rear quarter molding that fits below the back window from edge of the left rear door and rides atop the quarter and terminates at the deck lid...about 15" long and has a rubber type feel to it. and one parking lamp left front.

  22. no problem. I wish I could add it to my garage! It’s a fully loaded 5 spd! Very cool car! I hope whoever buys it understands what it is and treats it well!

    I've been told that my two W's will be valuable someday. No matter, that's not why I have them. I enjoy them for what they are and how much joy they give me. If they do end up gaining in monetary value, that's great. If not, oh well. They're not going anywhere.

    I joined the Doraville Plant Facebook group and asked about all of this. Check out this response from one of the plant workers. This is awesome history.
