    I have owned a few 77-79 B-Bodies but Currently own a 1978 Catalina Safari Wagon, 39,000 original mile car with a Buick 350 4bbl. The car was  strangely optioned by the original owner. Delux Interior, Power windows, lock and both front seats, HD Towing Package, Tilt, Gauge Package with econo meter. No Factory Radio or A/C, Has Aftermarket A/C &came with an after Market AM Radio. Here are a few pictures the 1st few taken this fall in front of the old Royal Pontiac Dealership in Royal Oak MI.

    thanks for the welcome, I also have a 1971 Catalina Freeway enforcer I picked up last spring, and have not done much with as of yet. If anyone is interested in seeing it I will start a topic in the 71-76 section. Now that I have actually figured out how to post pictures here.
