Hey guys, just wanted to introduce myself and my car. My name is John and im currently living in oceanside California (actually stationed there in camp Pendleton right now). I got this 69 cutlass not long ago as a sort of project car. Mechanically there is nothing wrong with it, runs and drives great! I plan on working mostly on restoring the cosmetic issues with it first. The previous owner put a decent amount of work into it, he took the seats out and had the interior leather redone, also he swapped the original 3 speed automatic tranny for a 4 speed auto (i still have the original he just wanted an extra gear for driving on the highway). This is my first true classic car to restore, so i will probably need a lot of advice in the future! I think this will be a great car to learn on because its already in decent condition, but also has a lot to work on! Thanks and wish me luck!

I have already started on repainting the engine bay. Got a long way to go but it's a start.
