Save the Whales

You know, endangered species and shiz...
After I wrecked my '94 S10, I had an itch to get something different, so I bought a station wagon. After searching coast to coast, scouring internet classifieds, I finally found one of the most rare wagons built of the 91-96 generation. A 1992 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser with the LO5 350 TBI engine and the towing package. It's a pretty well optioned car, power everything, factory remote keyless entry, rear defrost, Cassette deck with equalizer. It came with a set of stock wheel covers, but this one sits on 9C1 steelies and 235/75 R15 tires.

Anyhow, enough of my babbling, here's some pics:













Oh, its got a Sungate windshield too.



Wheelcovers and an extra airbag



Dashboard, it also has the compass in the mirror.

Re: Save the Whales

Clean the f**k out of the interior, fix little things that are wrong, like the antenna and mirrors. Maybe a set of Bonnies later on, get a hitch for it, later on a engine swap maybe, big mirror swap is a maybe.

Re: Save the Whales

HAHAHAHAHA,breathe,HAHAHAHAHAHA, Nuke ISIS.

Its insured at least, roughly the same as I had for 1 vehicle when I was 23 for full coverage on 2 at 24. Still have to get it imported to Ohio, gonna set an appointment with a dealer service department that used to sell Oldsmobiles so I can get an Ohio title an real plates, looking at getting THIS for my tags since its a cause I firmly support, Never Forgotten.

Re: Save the Whales

haha nice thread name, they really are whales.

my friend bought a bagged gold caprice wagon years ago and I used to call it goldie the whale. I gave him endless columns of shit about it, I would send him texts like "that thing is so gold and ugly I wouldnt know whether to scrap it or hammer it into 30 tubas" He listed it on craigslist and I would email him "I would love to buy the car but I cant afford the 3000 gallon saltwater tank and all the fish sticks to feed it"

good times. jer, if you read this, sorry man.


I like the vista roof on this one!

Now that's a damn shame, nice ones can be had if you look. I actually got this one from Alamosa, Colorado, which made for the inside being pretty dusty.

I've driven it a little, it doesn't feel like a whale, smooth yet firm ride from the HD suspension and air leveling in the rear. 350 TBI and 3.23 gears make for decent acceleration and its dead smooth at quick passing speeds. Monday, I'm finally gonna get a chance to get it inspected and an Ohio title for it. Until winter is officially over and all the salt is off of the roads, its not going to be driven unless it needs to be driven.

Re: Save the Whales

Earlier this week I noticed that the speedometer reads fast by 8PMH, according to the calculations I have done, it could have 3.73s in it or the wrong VSS.

Waiting on warmer weather before I get underneath and take a look.

Re: Save the Whales

Thar she blows!



It didn't want to start today, electricity was full, one click from down at the starter and it didn't even turn over. Only a 5 mile tow, driver was efficient as fcuk with the load and unload.

Re: Save the Whales

I love mine, but I'm irritated with it right now. I want to throat punch the person who designed the exhaust system right now.

Re: Save the Whales

Those tires are taller than stock too which will add to the speedometer discrepancy. What's up with the exhaust? I think mine had like two mufflers and a resonator on it. You couldn't tell when the thing was running.

Re: Save the Whales

Yeah most wagons came with 215/75/15's optional was 225/75's. That's over an inch taller. I'm running 255/50/17's on Impala SS stockers. Next I want 20" Ridler 695's with a Kore3 big brake kit! Oh and an LS swap, then I'll be done I think.....

Re: Save the Whales

With the 235/75-R15s its a taller tire so my speedometer should read like 62 when I'm going 65 not read 70 when I'm going 62. They do fill up the wheel wells nicely.

The exhaust has the Y pipe with the crossover from the left bank coming in front of the oil pan and the right bank comes down into it. I'll get a pic, the Y-pipe needs to come out for the starter to drop. No duals on this car, air compressor is where the left muffler would go, they moved the compressor to between the front bumper and core support when they switched to the LT-1 and dual exhaust. Honestly, I'm thinking about building a 455 Olds for this backed by a 4L80 and a good dual exhaust with cutouts.

Re: Save the Whales

those are some big balloons! I bet it rides nice.

this is the gearing calculator I use when I am not sure of gears.

http://www.unixnerd.demon.co.uk/revs.html

make sure you hit "calculate" after changing things. the 4l60 in your olds should be a .69 overdrive so change that and select fifth gear in the calc (or enter it for fourth gear and select fourth if you are a stickler for technical accuracy).

just plugging it in with a 3.23 rear and a 3.73 rear it looks like you are right on the discrepancy, a 3.73 rear will indicate ~70mph at 1850rpm when you are actually traveling ~62mph

Re: Save the Whales

Yeah, thats how I reached that conclusion, It could also be a wrong gear in the VSS as well.

Re: Save the Whales

I wasn't able to grab any pics of the underside, it wasn't high enough above the ground to frame a good shot. The exhaust crossover is between the oilpan and the cross member from the left to the right and then is right underneath the starter. I removed the frame brace that runs from the crossmember to the LCA and to frame using a thin wrench.

After installing the new starter I had the same problem, cleaned the battery cables because positive side had corrosion between the two cables, there are two stacked terminals on the positive side and it was pretty bad in there. Put the cables back on and sprayed it with protectant and it started right up. After that replaced the flexplate cover and frame brace and took it back on the street into the park behind my house. The posi works very well. The code is G80 on these and it confused me, GM used an Auburn Posi and labeled it under the same code even though they are very different units.

Got a wheel trim ring to see how it will look on it. May install them because they do look good on the 9C1 wheels, and will be even better with a Rocket logo in the centers.

Re: Save the Whales

Update time: been enjoying it, had another starter issue, tightened the connection more and it's just fine.

Took it to a cruise-in tonight and found the perfect spot to park it.







Next to a '93 Roadmaster Wagon WB4 wood delete in Light Adriatic Blue Metallic.

There is a Caprice wagon with an Impala SS front end in my area that is running what I believe to be Torque Thrust D wheels and white letter tires. Looks great. If I see it again I'll have to snap some pics.

Indeed! I'd love to have one of these and put a 6 speed in it. Would be a fun land barge.

Re: Save the Whales

Depends, I found mine in Colorado, but I wanted a 92 Oldsmobile with the 350, towing package, Posi and a cloth interior. With only 4,347 92 Olds wagons built, just over 1000 had the posi and mine's got a couple other rare options too, like the Navy Blue Metallic, the rear seat sunshades and not having alloy wheels.

Re: Save the Whales

Minor update time. I really haven't done anything with the car lately. I did take it up to Cleveland in August for a ballgame with my Dad and brother. It's been my DD since the end of August when a planetary in my Trailblazer said fück you. That's getting its 4L60e built, with 5 pinion planetaries, upgraded clutch packs, hardened sun shell, Corvette servos, a trans cooler and firmer shift points, essentially a Stage II 4L65 for that.


Car is still really clean on the underside, there's some common problems that these cars do have and can develop rust in states without salt, but they're fixable.

It's been a good daily, it feels deceivingly small, considering its a few inches longer than a Suburban. Really needs new speakers, but I don't see too much more happening this year. Keeps throwing an EGR code, so I'll check it and see if it's sticking.

I'm just glad these TBI 350s are so simple, OBD1 FTW.

Re: Save the Whales

It's at 87K, I don't rev the shit out of it! Towing in OD is what did it in, trans did get warm once or twice too, fluid was slightly discolored and a slight burned smell to it, plus the sound of a busted planetary gear set. Since my trailer is only 900lbs, I'd tow in OD if it was empty or was loaded under 1100lbs for a total of 2000lbs. Never tow with a 4L60, 4L65 or 4L70 in OD. I just had to learn that the hard way.

Re: Save the Whales

Only 87k?? That's a baby, mine has 283k on it and still runs like a sewing machine. Its had valve seals and a new timing set but that's it motor wise. Trans was rebuilt not long after I bought it. Not bad for a car that cost $1800 10 years ago!

Re: Save the Whales

Trailblazer has 87k on it. Olds is showing close to114K right now. Been my daily driver for the last 6 weeks or so and have a 16 mile drive to work, so maybe 150-200 miles a week on average lately, been combining trips as much as possible.
