John Wiseman's '78 Cutlass Supreme

Owned by John Wiseman of Virginia. 1978 Cutlass Supreme, original 305 and original factory 4-speed. The car currently has 122,000, having been painted and mechanically rebuilt about 10,000 miles ago by the previous owner. Since purchasing the car in early '99, I have put a new headliner and carpet in it (not yet done in picture), installed a Rockford Phosgate CD player and pioneer speakers, and detailed the trunk.

Performance modifications include dual exhaust, and a K&N air filter. At the time of this writing, a Comp Cams cam ( .440 intake and exhaust ), Rhoads variable duration lifters, roller rockers, double roller timing chain, new pushrods and valve springs, and high flow water pump have been purchased and should be in the car within a month. Future engine mods include Edelbrock performer intake, Carter AFB carb (electric choke, 500cfm), headers, ignition, and World Products 305 heads.

Other plans for the car include some performance suspension add-ons, swapping in lower gears, and engine detailing. I plan on keeping the original 305 in the car for a couple of years since it was rebuilt so recently, but am planning on a 350 (or if money's good a 383), taking it's place in the future.
