okay.. so it'* still stock.. very stock... but the pics are up... and with it going back on the road in October... the mods will start... (I've been holding off modding the car cause it'* not insured right now and I'd hate to have some moron mess with or steal it while it'* not insured)

I bought the car from a dealership I was working at it was a Trade-in ... $300 I ain't complaining about the tuneup and small mods I need/want to do before the performance stuff

as I mod the car I'll update the page including all my custom made stuff

heh... it'* my 12th car... all of them have been custom in some way shape or form

I just took off the tails and the rear valance peice between the tails too see what kinda room I had for an idea

I prolly won't be doing the mod till september (along with some lights, stereo and alarm I'd had sitting since last car... waiting till plates are on or about to go back on)

the unfortunate part is paint won't be able to be done till spring/early summer at the earliest ..which means I get to run around with some exposed mounting holes and/or primered patchs...

the big body mods planned at the moment include : Lesabre nose (Ttype), shaved body moulding, custom tails, light up OLDSMOBILE across the back between the tails, slightly modified 80'* Fbody "mini F40" wing, tinted back windows, blacked out 95% chrome, blacked out lights, deep dark blue mettalic paint, 2000 Regal 16inch 6 spoke rims, and 3-3.5 inch lower... other then that... some neon here and there.. and 2 set of angel eyes... weeeeeeeeee

the fun part ofcourse is going to be all the junkyard scrounging I have ahead of me... a good lesabre nose should be hard to find... it'* the Ttype airdam that'* gonna suck trying to find

and ofcourse the interior is a whole nother story... those peices are gonna be fun to find in good shape too

please don't use the LeSabre T-Type front clip. Those cars were rare to begin with, but because of the age they are extremely hard to come by. There are tons of people out there who are just trying to barely keep their T-Types together now.. It'd be nice if they could get all the parts they need to make their own cars complete.

the only part on the nose that seperates a Ttype from a normal Lesabre is the airdam... I was originally gonna use the airdam on a normal lesabre nose, but decided against it... mianly cause I prolly just won't find one and with the lowering knowing my luck I'd rip the damn thing off... so yeah I'll stick with the normal lesabre under valence
