Welcome to the forum, Old Skool! If you have any questions on your ride let us know. There are few of us here that are knowledgable in most GM cars.

Welcome to the forum! We don't usually get anything older than 87 around here, so it'* good to have you!

Hey, if we call you an old fart, it'* not personal. It'* out of respect for the age of your car!

What body style was used in 79? Long box-like with square tail-lights?

I've seen pictures of someone making a Bonneville near that year into an insane sleeper!

Wish I could help you more on that nice V8, but my forte is old Mopar'*.

Think Caprice Classic. In 81 they went to the Malibu body, and the old style became Parisienne.
