Hi.
My car is a 1983 Cutlass Supreme.
It is a Canadian built car.It was assembled in the St.Therese plant, Montreal Quebec.Sadly, the plant no longer exists.
It has a factory stock 305 Chevrolet,4bbl,th 250 3spd auto,2.29:1 gear(soon to be replaced).Ps, pb, pt, pw, tilt, buckets/console.
I added the rallye gauge pac, sport steering wheel, heavy duty front/rear sway bars, new rear springs, and true dual exhaust with Cherry Bomb Turbos.
I have another 7.5" rear with 3.08:1 gears and posi unit that will be installed in the spring.
Over a decade ago the car went through a frame off restoration done by my uncle, so I started with a solid car.
The grill is from an '84.The original was broken.
The wheels on it are RPO-N66 14" chrome rallyes, and I have two RPO-N83 15" chrome rallyes for the rear, awaiting new tires, again in the spring.
The plans are to keep it mostly original.I will add options as I go, upgrading with Oldsmobile parts when I can find what I want.So far the exceptions to originality are the cd/mp3 deck, exhaust and some engine chrome.
I attend Cruise Nights regularly all summer long (http://www.travel-net.com/~goldvee/c...ght/index.html (http://www.travel-net.com/~goldvee/cruise_night/index.html)), and have been fortunate enough to take home three nice awards over the years.

I have posted pics in a photo album if anyone wants to take a peek.........

Nice ride, very clean and I love the two tone paint. Did it come stock with a 305?

Thanks for the compliments.
Canadian Cutlass' optioned with a V8 came with a 305 Chevy from the factory.
'83-'84 H/O and '85-'87 442 were still equipped with the Olds 307.
