Default Coolant reservoir location?

Im trying to find a location for a coolant reservoir on 1997 Buick Regal GS.
When i bought a car it came with some stupid bottle tied to a radiator support.
I just bought the bottle that supposedly of its original shape but i cant figure out where does it sticks. I think only those who have 1997 can help me as for any other year of Regals GM moved it next to a fuse box on a right shock tower. If anyone have 1997 please send me a pic of ur engine bay. thank you

this is look like one of the LS Regals i sa on at the junk yard. Their Air box permits that to fit into. Mines is a diff box.

Sorry for the confusion on my part, couldn't find a GS engine bay pic, lol! Why not go with an aftermarket air box of some sort?

Just a thought, you could go with the SLP box as I did..Afterthoughts Auto has it on sale: SLP Cold Air Induction Package (GTP/Regal/Monte Carlo SS/Impala)

It worked out well for me..much better than the stock box, and no need to use the '99+up coolant bottle.

Hey Ed,
not sure if ull read this or not. Thks for the help w/pics, today i realised that there could of been a great chance that the engine which was dropped into this car before i got it, wasnt from 97 and so they just dropped that box it came with and threw away orig w/blown one, along w/orig coolant bottle. (the car that i got, said to have newer engine) lol. Today i was at a junk (in regards of my another thread i am running in which i need electrical help) and found 97 w/same box u showed, but i couldnt take the freaking of due to completely rusted (rounded of 3 bolts that hold it), didnt have enough toold to f w/it appropriately as it was effing w/me. lol but again, thanks for the help. i wonder if u could have any idea in regards of my other thread, i really need help there. lol.
