My 1994 Olds Cutlass Supreme Convertible

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.

I bought it at Copart auto auction. It needed some vacuum lines, brakes, and tires, and battery but it still ran and drove. It needed a lot of work but it was still a good deal.

Wow!  I've always heard bad things about auto auctions.  I've never experienced it myself but apparently they like to add on a ton of fees that really add up?  Is this not the case in your experience? 

Very happy you saved this one then.  I think a lot of those vehicles get scrapped if they don't sell.  I've seen a lot of these beautiful cars meet their end and that really saddens me.  I own a coupe version, a 91 International with the same motor.  I love it immensely and look forward to your progress! 

I just seen one of these in my local yard, a triple white car and the same interior of course.  It's the second triple white car I've seen getting scrapped. 

There is a lot of great info here and everyone here has been so nice and helpful...really, a great bunch of guys!

Did you just patch the vacuum lines?  My cars need vacuum repairs as well and just wondering if you had any tricks to it.  I want mine to be factory correct and also factory in appearance.  Still figuring that out.

I had it done at a repair shop so I’m not sure how they did it. Later on I also had to do a vacuum ball(just a little plastic ball) that was cracked and resulted in poor running. When I took it to dealer they took the cover off for the timing belt and discovered the timing belt was eating itself due to some parts that held it on track breaking. I had been hearing a small squeak but didn’t think much of it.

Yup, I know about the vacuum ball as well.  Timing belt and vacuum lines are crucial for these motors.  Pay attention to those and the LQ1 will be reliable and run for a long time!
