Rudy Keron's 1978 Cutlass Supreme
My '78 Cutlass Supreme has been in the family for about
19 yrs.I've driven and maintained it for twelve of those. The original 260 V8 has been
replaced by a larger Olds '68-350 Rocket motor out of a F-85 Cutlass.It was left as a
stock motor for a little while and then went through a rebuild in '98. Now the goodies:
Holley Street Dominator intake,Holley 750 dbl.pmpr./mech.,Holley mech. fuel pump,K&N
filter, upper windage tray, Lunati .520 lift cam,Milodon stainless valves,Mondello
roller-rockers,cast-iron heads(with a little work),factory: crank,rods & pistons,
Mondello oil pump,custom 6 qt.oil pan,aluminum water pump,Accel race wires,AC Rapid fire
plugs.(and for a big-block sound) Cyclone headers,custom 3" mandrel bent exhaust, and
Flowmaster 3 chamber mufflers,with tail pipes.The power is transferred, from a TH-350
turbo tranny, B&M shift kit, Holeshot 3000 converter, and a 8.5" GN rear-end with
3.73's /posi. to a set of Welds and BFG's.
The interior has been upgraded to factory Calais buckets, console and now a Hurst Quarter Stick shifter. The Auto Meter gauges keep track of rpm's, oil psi, and water temp. Did I forget to mention the car has all the A/C equip. still hooked up?
Right now the e.t.'s have been into high 13's when I throw the slicks on. I don't know what the car runs with the 3.73's yet. (they're a new item)
