Default 44 640x480 - My friend'* 1986 Olds 98 Regency

This car has been mentioned before on this forum, but there have been no developments. He definitely has the Bonneville goods with the ELC struts, 3800, rust, Autolite 104s, even the same-size blower motor, and so on. On 9-20-07, some days after we hung out to take all these pictures, I made this .zip file with all the pictures of the car from when he first got it to some developments in cleaning it.

By the way, this friend is James, the guy who worked with me vigorously several times to keep my car running. It was like a Nascar pit stop almost every time, but instead with radiator swaps, fluid flushes, etc. In most of the pictures, he'* dressed in his IT clothes since we used to work together.

I don't think I'll ever understand your randomness.

Thank you very much.

James was going to post on the club, but he told me he was embarrassed of the raw whorage and would have to restart if he would ever want to show his car here. Such a shame.

Well, now that you can see every single thing about the car, or so, what do you think? L67 swap-worthy?

It'* a good thing that this car has ~93K miles on it, and we suppose the transmission has been taken care of. It feels stock, but every now and then, some shifts are awkward. We threw Slick 50 into the transmission fluid, and it'* working out great.

So, has anyone yet noticed the mold on the passenger side A pillar?
