I did not know the 78 G bodies were such a PITA! I actually redid one back in the early 90's. My wife loved driving that car.




I parked it next to a white 79 that looked just like mine before it was redone.

Great cars, just a lot of "First Year" weirdness, like the 72 Torino chassis cars have.
The above post should be read in a "Grumpy Old Man" voice.

Cool Cutlass Chuck.  My brother used to have an '86 that was a ton of fun.  It had the F41 suspension so it handled really well.  Being a Canadian car it has more powerful LG4 305 instead of the 307 US market cars got.  We added true duals (it was REALLY loud) and tweak the ignition.  It ran pretty strong for a smogger 305.
