As stated earlier, I had a lot of external work done to it. First, the silver lower body accent was repainted on both sides and the front bumper. (The original owner lived on a gravel road.) The burgundy had been repainted, so I had it wet sanded and buffed. The following is a list of everything that's been replaced.
*Chrome molding around the front and rear windshields, plus the chrome strip
on each T-top.
*All the side impact molding.
*Two of the gold fender stripes. (You'd think they have real gold dust IN them for what the dealer charges...)
*Hood ornament and rocket emblem on front cap.
*Center caps on SS III wheels.
*Right front bumper turn signal lamp. (Water damaged.)
*Tag holder with a custom made Oldsmobile tag.
(The only thing replaced inside was the rubber pad for the brake pedal.)
The only mechanical modification it has is a B&M shift kit that I had installed in August of '96. The transmission seemed a little "mushy", a comment I've received from other mid '80's G body owners. The B&M kit has given it a noticeable improvement in acceleration. It also has a K&N air filter.
The appearance package is completely stock except for the trunk. The factory trunk was killing me in car shows. (1/4" black mat on the floor, primer in the fender wells, donut spare tire showing, etc.) The trunk was customized at Long's Glass and Kustom Interiors in Vernon, Alabama. As of August 24, 1997, the odometer showed 36,750 miles. It's won numerous awards at car shows, and I've received many offers on it. I always decline to sell it, though, because I love my Olds!
