new from St.Louis

Hello to all. So I just bought the car that I have wanted for years, a 71 olds cutlass S. Ok I really want a 442 but this is close enough for me. And yes it is a rust bucket but it is some thing I can work with, and is not restoring the car half the fun? Any way there is a lot to do. I have big plans for this car, but it does need new floors, trunk, body work, heck I don't know if it will even run. going the rebuild the rochester 2bbl, see if the 350 will turn over and put new pump fuel lines and tank on. Then on to the brakes. the interior is shot so that will all be coming out too. I have a long way to go and not a whole lot of money to do it with, but it will get done. I look forward to any help you folks can give me and I will try to keep you all up to date on the build. Let me know what you think.

Lightbulb Hello

I'll compare my rust bucket to yours. Rust is only skin deep.
