    my introduction

    Post  hot_box on Fri Apr 14, 2017 10:51 pm

    what's up everyone.  new to this forum but not new to cars.  had dozens of Fords and chevys over the years.  my current fleet is a 1982 Oldsmobile Delta88 (Royale), and a 1985 Impala, and a 98 Suburban.

    The Delta88 has 32,000 original miles.  Rust free, extremely solid VA car.  It's baby blue over a crushed dark blue velvet interior. 307, completely stock except the dual exhaust. This car is super original and staying that way.  







    The 85 Impala is my baby.  176,000 miles on the chassis but an unknown amount on the current motor.  The engine was replaced by GM sometime in the late 90's, so I speculate it has about 75-80k on the current engine.  Green on Green (my favorite), 305.  Dual exhaust, chrome tips. New everything under the hood: spark plugs/wires/cap/etc, all filters and fluids have been changed by me with the exception of the transmission which i believe is the original 700r4. Kenwood head unit, kenwood 500.1 amp and one kicker comp r12 sub in the trunk.  The A/C works but very poorly, it's still r12 never converted to R-134a.  need to get a 4th rim to match. it's dented and rusty (no frame rust) but overall very, very solid.

    Future plans include pull dent out fender, replace all miscellaneous chrome trims in and out, replace miscellaneous trims bits around the interior, same color GREEN repaint, and address any trans issues if/when they arise.








    In case anyone is interested the Suburban is my immaculate, second owner, daily driver.  146k on the 5.7 Vortec, excellent shape.  only mods are a Kenwood head unit, Kicker 650.1 amp and two old kicker 12's that bump very hard.



    Anyways, i'm glad to be a part of this B-body community.  hopefully others enjoy seeing some pics of my rides and maybe I can find some parts
