Default 3800 Swap Suggestions/Ideas

A tractor trailer took out my '96 Olds LSS this past week. I'm guessing that it'* totaled, but this car has a super running N/A 3800 and trans with only 98000 miles on it. Mid-90'* GM cars with bad motors/trans are pretty cheap so I've been thinking about swapping this motor and trans into a smaller car. As of now, I'm thinking of a Regal 2dr coupe, since these came with the same motor/trans combo as my Olds, but they weigh about 300 lbs less. I'd really like to go with an '88-'96 2 dr Cutlass supreme, but these didn't come with the 3.8. I was also thinking about getting one of the 3300 powered cars and doing a swap, but they use different transmissions. Any ideas?
