  • New Olds guy coming in!

    Hey, I'm into hot rods, mainly T Buckets. It's a cool ride, but being a roadster with little room, it wasn't practical as my daily driver. So, today I bought a '79 Olds Cutlass. I had owned a '68 442 back in high school, but it's long gone now. Anyway, while driving the Cutlass today, I was reminded of Oldsmobile dependability. The previous owner was an elderly guy and he took fairly good care of it. Which is a blessing.

    So, it's going to be my new daily transportation, but being a car nut, I have to know everything about it. It's got a V*, but I'm not sure if it's a 350 Olds or a swapped 305. I didn't bother to ask. It runs so good, I basically handed the man cash after the test drive.

    It's got a couple small issues, but I'll try and handle them myself before I go begging you guys for help. I've always worked on my own cars due to finances and being cheap. So, I look forward to sharing when I can.

    thanks for having me.

    New Olds guy coming in!

    I'm a hot rodder and presently own a T Bucket. It's a cool care, but being my daily was becoming impractical. Especially when it rained, since it's a roadster. Well, today I got lucky and found a '79 Olds Cutlass in fairly good shape. The previous owner was an elderly guy and it appears he took good care of it.

    I had owned a '68 442 back in high school, but that was long ago. Anyway, while doing a test drive, I rediscovered Oldsmobile dependability. So, I figured I would join a forum of like minded folks. I'm not ditching the hot rod, but I will be doing minor upgrades to the Cutlass.

    I normally work on my own cars, so I may be able to contribute here sometimes. I look forward to sharing info with like minded guys.

        Welcome to the forum!
        Is your '79 a 5 speed manual?
        Any future plans or will this be a daily driver?
        Any photos?
        I've driven a Gbody daily since I was 16, love these cars.
        If you need any part numbers, guidance, wire diagrams etc. just ask!
