as u can see this is my first post, lol, im still tryin to figure out how to post up pics. it was easier to just do a youtube link. this is my 81 cutlass i bought 2 yrs ago, it came wit a v6 not runnin , all stock, and had been parked since 1994. i dropped in a 350 sbc bored .30 over, forged pistons, rods, and a .294 comps cam, oversized valves and aluminum rockers on da heads, a edelbrock air gap intake and a edelbrock 750 carb. edelbrock chrome dress up kit, and chrome pulleys. it also has a 350 turbo trans wit a 2500 stall and shift kit. thats all ive been able to do, but future plans are for nice paint job, and some 24s , i should be done by may of 09. coments and sugestions are welcomed, thnx

update- well heres a few things i just got for my cutlass, i just got these 24x10 wheels wit 255/30/24 tires used but in good condition real cheap, im just tryin to decide which part of the wheel to paint to match da car. im gettin my car painted the 2008-09 lexus metallic maroon within the next month. i also got all the chrome rocker moldings that go around the whole car, in good condition, even the hard to find fron pices that go between the front bumper and front wheels. i got the 1 inch adapters/spacers for the rear so my wheels can go on. i got a new grant woodgrain wheel and adapter. i went ahead and got some lift cups but im gonna cut them down cuz i dont want to use lift nuckles, and i want that miami stance. nobody here in dallas does that, every1 ridin skinnies wit a huge lift and think they hard, lol. i got my shocks, rotors, brakes, and all the hardware to redu my suspension and brakes. there a swap meet comin up in april, im hopin to find a posi unit and some 3.73s. anyways let me know what yal think and any suggestions on what part of the wheel to paint , thanx

Yeah man it sounds like that cutty is gone be something serious. I got a 81 cutlass i'm building also. I got 275/30/24 on mine. But i'm not sure what color i wanna paint my car. I got a built motor and all in it. I also used the 1 inch adapters but I put them all the way around and my wheels still don't poke out.

i really dont wanna use any adapters cuz i heard crazy stories about them, especially how im gonna be driving this bitch, lol. i cant wait, its been too long already. so imma look into cuttin the back frame ( notch) and see if that will clear them without the spacers, if not maybe i can use smaller spacers cuz i want to be able to drop the back without worryin about hittin the tire.
