Here are a couple of pics of my first car. It's a 1984 Cutlass Calais. I've had this car for about 14 years now. The original paint is cracking pretty good, it has dings dents and some rust here and there but it is alot of fun to drive and tinker on.

nice car. :)

what size motor does she have?

Is it in fact a Cutlass Supreme? Reason I'm asking is because I was once a proud owner of a 1987 Calais that was the similar size of a Cavalier (so to speak).

It's got a 350 Olds motor out of a 74 Delta 88. It's a smog motor so it's got the low compression dished pistons and #8 heads.

It's actually a Calais. This was the model of the Cutlass that the Hurst Olds was based on for 83 and 84. The Calais nameplate was moved to the smaller body style in 85 and stayed there. The Salon model was the next in line. This one was the base model for the 442 that was available for the 85 - 87 model years.

Beautiful car, I hope you are planning on stopping the rust.

Had a 1987 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme with T-tops for my first car. When I sold it, I didn't really care and Mom said "You will always miss your first car"

She was right...
