I've owned a 1992 Custom Cruiser for the last ten years. It's been off the road for about the last four but has recently been put back into service. This looked like a good place to hang every so often so I wanted to say "Hey!"



This wagon is all stock with 232,500 miles on it. Some options include the 5.7L engine, leather, dual power front seats, power mirrors and load leveler.

Typical maladies right now include one back window with broken track slides and the other with a dead motor. The driver window works fine but the plastic toggle on the switch assy broke on one side so I have to use a small screwdriver to push the "up" button. The A/C won't stay charged anymore and we couldn't find the leak even with dye. Also, gravity is winning the battle with the headliner.

Very pretty car! I love the white over tan on the Olds models. Yours looks great, especially considering the miles on it. I have a '96 Roady wagon which I love, but I still think the Olds are the cleanest looking wagons. I'm a big Olds nuts, I also have an '88 Cutlass T-Top, and my last wagon as an '89 Custom Cruiser. I've yet to have a "rounded" Olds wagon but I'm sure it'll end up with one sooner or later.

As a true car nut I see a frame with some Buick mags peeking out of the garage. Care to share what that is?

Also, been watching you folks on the news with all the flooding. It's a good thing most of Memphis is on high ground. The pics of Mud Island I've seen on the net are amazing. My entire family is from "across the bridge" in Jonesboro Arkansas, so Memphis is kind of a 2nd home. Hope all's well for you and yours.

Again welcome to the group!

Thanks for the welcome folks.

Mike, the car in the background is my '67 GS400 ragtop that has been apart for a good while. For some reason my signature didn't post as it lists the GS and a Cutlass as well. Maybe my sig will work this time...

I see your car list. Would like to see your Cutlass to! I love my 88 Cutlass even though the carb is currently giving me fits. G-bodies were just nice cars and a perfect size as far as I'm concerned.

I also have a basket-case '67 GTO in the garage that is a "someday" project. Sounds kind of like your GS. I drove a pea green 68 Skylark Custom in high school, with a 350 and 2-speed "Super Tubine" trans. Ha! But 68 is a totally different animal from a 67. I love the 67's. There is a good pic of one in the Events folder from that last Cars and Coffee we had in Austin.

You have a GN too? Wow that's some nice collection of toys! Welcome again to the forum!

Here's an older photo of the Cutlass. The original paint has since gone south but the interior is still super.
