I was cruising the local classifieds today, found two 1970 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme's for $1000. In case you've never seen them, they look like this:
The ad says the floor on the one is rotted out and the frame is thin and cracked, it hasn't started since 2004, and one headlight is missing. Most of the body panels are near mint. The other one, wich he has no ownership for, the frame and floor is ok but theres no engine. He says he just wants them out of his garage...
I think I'm goin for that. Not everyday you see a 70's Cutlass drive by. The one is painted exactly like the one above (a little rustier but not too bad,) and the parts car is orange.
Sure it'll be a bit of a challenge but it'll be a fun project for my and my dad over the next while.
