I can't at all tell the mileage on the car. I see you might be running hub caps. Are new wheels in the works? Please, please take some pictures of the engine bay.

Those are the Stock 15" Park Avenue alloys.... and the engine compartment is only going to reveal an L27 attached to a 4T60-E and most likely and ELC Pump

They're nice wheels then. Do the higher sidewalls usually make for a smoother ride? Even though the engine compartment has an L27, I'd like to see how it'* laid out. This is a C-body, right?

So, no difference in the engine bay compartment between H and C bodies? I thought the struts were closer together on the C but with more room toward the back. I've been looking for PAs at junkyards to make sure, but I haven't found any. I did see a LeSabre, though, and it'* the exact same thing. I'm sure I could do a hood, light, fender, and bumper swap and make it into a 1/3 Bonneville. Is the C body the same way?

Through 1996 the C Body under the hood is identical to the H body
