    jiggity76 comes through once again!

    My car has been missing this piece for as long as I and the guy before me have owned it. But today I got a "care package" in the mail from jiggity76 and inside was the moulding I have been missing and it is in WHITE. With about 20 minutes of my time disassembling and polishing, it's as close to NOS as a used piece is going to get. Now, a missing key piece to the car is in place.......

    Guess who's back. Back again!

    Hey guys! Its been ages and I'm happy to see that the site is still around. I remember doing meetups back at Kensington Park in Michigan, and having a great time with some of you. After 2 years of the car sitting in my barn, I pulled out my 95 vert for some sun. Stupidly I've been only starting and running it every six months. The mice invaded over the winter and it's been an ordeal cleaning it up after they moved out. This virus shutdown finally gave me some time to spend with it. I'm smelling the mouse pee in there. I think I got most of the nests (lil bastards). Any tips would be appreciated. I've been told to use baking soda, carpet cleaner and vinegar. I may try them all lol. Now I have a list to problems to deal with, but I'm going to fix each one. It ran for a while then stopped. Now I cant get it to run. Fuse and fuel is ok. Mouse pee (see above) Brake line rot. Who needs to stop anyways lol. Thank goodness for the parking brake. Tires are shot. They had less than 4000 miles on them too . Gonna yank em off and take them to the tire shop for replacement Climate control fan is making a lot of noise. Maybe there's a nest in there I need to get out. It did clean up nice though. Even with a cover on it, the barn swallows had a field day.

    1993 Cutlass Supreme

    Looks like I am back in the W body game. I am not new to the w body scene at all. I have had a few in my time. 1990 TGP, 2000 GTP, and a 1993 Z34. At the moment I have an 1989 Z24 powered by a TGP 3.1 turbo engine. But I am thinking of getting back in the game yet again. I got a line on a 1993 Cutlass Supreme. Very few details, but what I know is this. Its black with gray interior has 23,000 miles on it( yes that's not a typo). Been in Florida its whole life. Sitting in a parking garage under a car cover for the past 5 years. Only driven once a month up and down the garage. I live in Pa so rust free low mile W body is like the holy grail for me. No I dont have pics, but he tells me it's like new. But for the price I am paying for it and the while situation i cant pass this thing up. I should go to jail for this robbery lol

    GM PLATFORM INTERLINKING - JOINING ANOTHER

    I suppose from a personally selfish point of view I'd prefer that we keep our *home* just as it is. What models GM has to offer today to me pales in comparison to what it used to make available a lifetime ago. The technology has advanced, but the fewer choices that the buyer has to select from rubs me the wrong way. GM killed off both the Olds & the Pontiac marque just because they were not marketed on a global scale. I've never forgiven the upper echelon for doing that. If that reasoning was to stand why didn't they drop either the Chev or GMC truck line?...why are 2 lines needed?....when was last time you saw or heard of full sized trucks being exported overseas to Europe or Asia? In my past visits to either Britain, Poland or Germany I've never seen a GM truck being marketed there at all.....and you won't, not given the lack of fuel economy they deliver that doesn't meet the needs over there. The Pontiac brand was supposed to be the *sports* oriented division of the lot, so much for head office waving the *Excitement* banner.......the yearly Carlisle event (what used to be known as the GM Nationals) is now the Chevy Nationals, Chevrolet wouldn't sponsor the show unless the name was changed to Chevy.... another strike.....the show is now boycotted by many of the Pontiac & Olds owners for this reason, for those who own or want to own a W-body, they know where we are & the doors are always open...... Nope, I like things just the way they are.....

    My Impala Got Hit!

    Sunday around noon, I was coming home from church when a drunk driver rear-ended a Jeep behind me, propelling it into the back of my Impala. It tore off the rear bumper and mashed in the trunk lid and trunk tub. After I pulled over, I found my license plate under the front wheel of the pickup truck that had caused the accident. Thankfully, no one was hurt, not even the drunk. Amazingly, my car was the only one involved that left the scene under its own power. There was no damage to the suspension and it drove and handled just as it had before the accident, albeit with a few more rattles. Nonetheless, it's teetering on the bubble of being totaled. My insurance company is calling in a third-party appraiser to make the final call. With that in mind, I started looking at used cars on Edmunds.com last night, just to see what was available in my area and at what price points. I started out looking at Malibus and Impalas and was disappointed to find that everything with an affordable price had a ton of miles on it and lower mileage cars were priced considerably higher than I was comfortable paying. I was about to close up my laptop and call it a night when I decided to look at Buicks, in particular the Buick LaCrosse. Imagine my surprise when the first listing was for a 2013 model that Edmunds identified as a "Great Deal" at $2,300 below market. It was the only "Great Deal" I looked at all night. The car looked pristine as the CarFAX report and while eating breakfast this morning, I gave the dealer (an independent in a small town about an hour north of me) a call and decided it warranted a visit, even though I didn't have the final word from my insurance company. Seeing, as they say, was believing and although I didn't intend to do it, I ended up buying the car. It was a bird in the hand that I didn't want to let go of. If the Impala is totaled, which my gut tells me it is, I'm a step of the game, having already replaced it. If not, the insurance company can pay to get it fixed and I'll sell it. Either way, it's a win for me, moving up two model years and back 30,000 miles from the Impala. The ironic thing is my mother has a 2013 LaCrosse also. Hers only has 6,800 miles on it.

    Wheel center caps

    Just a photoshop for now, but I did order some of these off ebay. I've always thought it would be fun to run these, kinda mimic the '88 Cutlass convertible pace car. The red version of these are easier to find but didn't think they'd look right on my car!

    Hi there! I'm new to the W-body platform

    I recently purchased a 1992 Buick Regal Limited 3800 with a scant 79,000 original miles from a local scrapyard. It has a few small dings, but no rust whatsoever. I'm used to old Audis, so this is WAY out of my wheelhouse haha. What are the common problem areas? Can it be lowered without sacrificing the ride quality too much? Pics of it on my Facebook page https://m.facebook.com/eric.mongeur/albums/10156539869041793/

    Beat them without mercy with the old timing belt? Awesome to see new members trickling in still rocking the 3.4 DOHC.

    New guy from Belgium

    Hi, my name is Tim and for about a year or so I've been a proud owner of a 1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme that's been passed onto me. I live in Belgium and the car is in Poland for the moment but that's another matter. I had always wanted an American car, maybe the Olds isn't what the average teenager dreams of but these cars are very rare in Europe so I'm happy with it. The Oldsmobile make is almost unknown in these parts, so it adds to the curiosity factor. There are however problems with rarity - the first one being spare parts. The second issue is finding people with enough knowledge to be able to diagnose a problem or recommend any change - that is how I found this forum, I've already found a few useful posts. I hope that one day I'll be able to contribute to this forum to respond in kind.

    Hello, friends!

    They’re fun engines, I’ve had 3; my old cutlass vert, a 96 Monte Carlo daily driver that had around 180k, and currently have one with a 5 speed in the gtp. Other than the engine bay being a little cramped they’re not bad, and I was never sure why they got such a bad rap.

    Hello, friends!

    I would love to hear from anyone that had the 3.4 DOHC engine, that was a "black sheep" for us mechanics but the fuel economy and WOT scream wouldn't be beat!

    What’s up from FL

    What’s up everybody, Im from FL and am the proud owner of a 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix GT show car that I built and have approximately 800 hours in. From body work like seamless rear spoiler and ED front end, Eibach suspension, custom installed Xbox one of a kind Lava Walls, competition sound and video system and Jesse James wheels. It has been featured in Car Audio and Electronics magazine as well as Pontiac Enthusiast magazine. I am very proud of it as it is my masterpiece. I look forward to making some friends and learning some cool things. I have very little in-depth motor work experience and need guidance. I am by trade, a car audio guy and have been for the last 32 years so I can contribute at least that much to the group, lol. -Bill

    Hi everyone, I’m happy to be in this group. Here are a few pictures of my car. We’ve painted it and had a new top installed but interior is original. Pretty good shape for 175 dollars running and driving.

    Cutlass Supreme - Door Latch Repair

    Yes, for sure, I have also discovered this with my 91 CS coupe as well. I have also learned from others here, getting into the habit of not using the handle to pull the door open but using my left hand (I'm right handed) to reach up and pull the door open at the top of the door frame. Good to know about the A1 units, thanks!

    Your ability to find parts that haven't been made since the Clinton administration never fails to amaze me.

    Restoration project...

    Nice save, looks pretty solid for an Ohio car. Fortunately, the door glass is the same as a 1988-94 coupe
