Hey guys,

I was in the process of building a cruiser with a buddy of mine to race this year. my buddy's priorities got really messed up so I am trying to finish this cruiser by myself. The cage and panels are in it, I am running a 350 olds motor with a powerglide tranny..but it needs a little cosmetic work. I love the style of my car. Its a 1984 Olds Delta 88. I have a Grand Marquis that I WAS going to use, but decided against it because it is fuel injected. My question is will the body parts on the Ford interchange with the body parts on the Delta to get the Delta on the track and do you guys have ANY tips that can help me with the finishing process and get me on the track in two weeks. I am hungry for dirt, have the heart, just need a little guidance. Thanks guys.

With a little creativity, a tourch, & a BFH,anything can be acomplished! It may not be perty but in the cruiser classes around here they don't stay perty long anyway!!

That's right okie...The first thing I was ever told was "pretty don't win" It can...but fast is a much better chance.

That is what I was thinking. Pretty don't win, speed does. Lol. At the time your lesabre was forsal racerj we didn't have that delta, and just as I was going to message you about it you crushed it and now I am kicking myself in the @$$. lol. But bonneville's and buicks match up better with Deltas?

Basically anything we can get. LOL. We really need a rear driver's side door and the junk yards around here are charging $75 yo $100 for a used one....that is a little outrageous so I am just trying to improvise
