    Hello everyone reading this.
    For the longest time I wanted a box caprice. this tax season I stumbled upon a 1978 olds delta 4 door which claimed to be all original for 350$ I thought it as too good to be true but sure enough they just wanted it out has in the carb and a jump brought the monster back to life. I'll post pics soon. I'm grateful I found this forum because so far 77-79 b body are a PITA to find parts for...
    But I'm sure with guidance from people that have walked this path I can get this car how I want it. Well that's my intro.

    Some of the things I my wish list for this car are:
    Lsx/6l90a swap
    Rear Disc brakes since I have a strong posi already.
    Weight reductions
    Full coilover Setup
    Full manual bench ( I'll be posting my powered 60/40)
    Those are definite( unless their not )
