Nope, I strongly dislike lifted cars. If I had to lift mine I would've just went with smaller wheels. The reason Box Chevys are so popular is because they have huge wheelwells and sit the best on big wheels with no lift kit needed.

haha true. I love the patina look, but there are some spots that I absolutely need to fix before they become holes. Surface rust, sure, fine, but not rot. The reason the car is a few different colors is where I cleaned up a few of the really, really bad areas before winter hit. The car was under a tree (but luckily on pavement) for 3+ years before I got it, so there is a lot of body rust in odd places, along with the burned off paint.

Not that I've found. I think there was one a few years back that never got off the ground. There just aren't really that many enthusiastic box owners, from what I've seen. The ones that are have found this site and lurk here haha.

False, Box Chevys have a fan base just as big, if not bigger, than Bubble Chevys do. No one has taken the initiative to create a forum specifically for Box Chevys though.

This is about as close as it gets at the moment:

I'll start my post with this quote here^ not true. 87 is the last year for the two door, correct, but they did not come only as a landau. Mine wasn't and I've seen others with bare roofs as well.

Here are some pics of mine

'88 Estate

Just got it running on the LT1 yesterday, it's a lot more fun than the Olds 307 ever could have been. Just a few more bugs to work out and I'll be set for a while
