    Default 88 Cutlass Supreme Classic- Rear Suspension and Trans Upgrade

    Did some upgrades over the past few months, mounted some mint condition 442 rims today with new BFG's. 235s in back and 215s in front, posted a few photos with different angles, not sure I like the color. I may strip and repaint like 83/84 Hurst Olds rims unless someone has a MINT GM set for sale or trade.
    Redid the interior a last month, added a Teak Wood top plate from Angelo Valanti and installed a heater box.
    Next step is to completely dismantle the front end over the winter and redo the front suspension, exhaust and motor.
    Aero kit will come immediately after thats completed...

    Man, That looks Extra Sharp! I like the gold rims on it but it might look better with the 83 hurst rims since there is no gold striping on the car...I'm sure a set will come up, Please dont strip those beauties! I have never owned a car nearly that nice, I would be scared to park it anywhere...I would probably rope it off at car shows...when you are done it will be the combined pinnacle of the 81-88 Cutlass, It is rare to begin with & has features from the best models available at the time, like the lightning rods, aero kit, 442 rims, hood, & a few custom features.....Keep Up The Good Work!

    Absolutely a well put together ride, from the shifter to how natural the wing and hood look on it.
    Agree on the wheels, not quite right but nice to have anyway.:icon14:

    Awsome job. Looks like show room condition and yes I agree with the rims they are beautiful but dont go. I personally like the rims on I think his name is Joe Simpson car. That would look awsome on your car. Keep me posted
