My first car

I still own my first car, which is a 1977 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme. I bought this car when I was 15 and have since put a lot of blood and sweat into it, not to mention a couple of thousands of dollars! The car has a blueprinted and stroked chevy 400 cid under its hood being that the original Buick 231 oddfire V6 died when I turned 18 (wonder why this happened? haha!) and is now pushing a new turbo 400 transmission since the street/strip turbo 350 tranny couldn't take the tourque. In order to finish the drivetrain, I have been searching for a reliable 12 bolt posi rearend and some other more modern engine mods such as a surpentine pully system, aluminum heads, and maybe a supercharger. Other modifications currently in the works to be completed is an extensive interior swap; the old split bench seats, etc. are being switched to factory swivel buckets along with a factory center console, tilt steering column, and new trim pieces. Some minor exterior paint work is needed as well being that the 26 layers of hand blocked laquer I had done in 1984 is beginning to show some of its age. All-in-all I LOVE my first car and will NEVER part with it; it's a part of me as much as my heart and soul, and I will pass it along to my children when I die.
