View Full Version : Beginner looking for a project

09-27-2013, 08:41 AM
Hey all,

I am new to this site, and am enjoying exploring it so far. I'm active duty military, currently stationed in Japan. All of my family is back in the U.S. (Green Bay to Oshkosh, Wisconsin). I am looking to acquire a "project" car that can stay with family back in the states while I finish out my tour overseas. It would be a great project for me to go home to. I love the '87 Grand Nationals (don't we all), but I will gladly work with anything. I'm new to rebuilding cars, so if anyone is looking to offload a project that they could not pursue, or has a car that has been overgrown with weeds in their yard - that's what I'm looking to take off your hands. Not looking to spend a heap, as this will be a long haul project for me. Anything 1970-1987 which fits the bill would be great!

Thanks for reading!

here's an idea for you. find a 64-67 or 78-84 wagon. make it a rear engine wagon. that will keep you busy for a while. :LAUGH:

1971 Olds 442
I bought this car years ago from Jim Haas. Original 33,000 mile Southern car. Stored most of it life. Very clean. Floorboards are extremely clean except for a couple of small holes from a leaky heater core..
Car has pretty much every part to reassemble. Most of those parts have either been rebuilt or bought new.
Including matching numbers motor and trans. (Rebuilt)
Interior is all original except for new carpet
Car was painted White a long time ago,should be Bittermist Cinnamon?
Has original W-30 parts to go along with it, red wheelwells,intake,air cleaner,ram air hood,emblems (will not sell separate)
Car needs paint and assembly.
Pics upon request.
