Default Update...

For those that were interested in the rescue of this '77 so it wouldn't suffer a Ghostbuster's fate or any other undesirable fate...
The car is scheduled to go to the body shop mid September... estimate was it would be there 7 weeks.
1977 Cadillac Academy Gray Metallic...

You mean you hate GM for not coming out with a better car. Same as today.

New coil springs raised it a bit, moved Coker American Classics from '81 to the '77... 1.6 inch whitewalls should look nice with new paint... a last gander while it's white:

Hey Kent, she is looking better already! One correction though, I don't think Coker makes the American Classic tires. As I understand it, Coker Tires are now made in China, American Classics are made in Pennsylvania, USA.

On the Coker site, it says these are made in USA... someone mentioned to me they thought these were manufactured by Cooper... Just bought a set to go on the '77 S & S, which was sporting some 15 year old Broadway's that have been passed around about 4 cars...

They are sold at two on line locations cooker and universal. My guess is both places are the same parent company. What I don't understand is why they don't make a Heaver load rating tire. They are a good looking tire on a car. If they are manufactured by Cooper they have a 235 that is rated will over 2000 lb it just comes with raised white letters. All the bias ply tires are made over seas. It is my understanding that cooker is a distrupiter not a manufacturer. They put out there specs and some one bids to make them.

Kent,
Where did you get the cloth for the drapes?

The local trim shop that did the drapes for the 73, 76 and 77 S & S had sample material, the shop owner said there were some types of material that wouldn't work well because the threads would pull apart easily. He told me after I picked out a fabric he would look at it and tell me if he thought it would work. As you probably know, you need to use a good automotive interior fabric so it won't fade...
