    kdseville, Pop a Corona, fold your arms and stand 20 feet in front of your car. Consider your post about converting to a RWD package. Observe and think hard.

    You'd be better off putting another motor and transaxle in the back like the old Hurst "Hairy Olds".

    Re: STSi?

    That would be one unique car, no one would have one like it and there might be a reason for it.

    If you like the body style why not start with a RWD STS. Converting that car to a Stick and LS motor would be much easier.

    LS7... Cool motor but not worth the money. You could build up a Stroked and sleeved C5R for probably about the same amount of $$ and have a better motor.

    Maybe they will teach you all of this in your automotive course in college, maybe not.

    Good luck in what ever you do!

    Yeah using a RWD STS would be much easier than converting one of these FWD cars.

    Nah, C5R bare block alone is 7 grand, about $500 more than a 440 cid LS7 shortblock from Scoggins-Dickey. Then throw in the C5R heads for another 3-4, and the money to fab up an intake since nothing off the shelf will fit.

    But still, an incredible waste of time and money to do an LS7/T56/RWD conversion to an STS/SLS chasis. A guy like Leno could pull it off for alot of $$$, similar to what he did with that old Toronado (though at least even that car was body-on-frame, chopping up a unibody STS for a RWD swap will be nowhere near as straightforward).

    Exactly, but Leno is a millionare and has more pull and recognition in the industry than almost anyone else. If he wants something done, somebody will do it, cost and complexity be damned.

    If you want to get crafty with the Seville, you might consider instead going the Mosler twinstar route.

    Re: STSi?

    Florian, You must not understand the word "Project car" do you? It's gonna be hard as hell to pull of but it has already been done so it's not impossible. A 572 Big block chevy was thrown into a Deville and converted to rear wheel drive. You might not like the idea but Im really unique. That's why I had the STSi decals custom made for my car so I have the most unique Caddy in the US right now. How too make it more unique??? LS7!!!! And that is the BEST MOTOR!!!!! The LS7 motor (all LS series) are the best, most power full V8's out there for the price. It cost roughly 8k for an LS6 crate, figure another 5 years of me saving up and finishing school the LS7 will cost around that or less.

    Dude, if your gonna put me down, call me a tard, and make fun off me cause you dont like what I'm doing then dont even post on this thread man. I know it's strange to do but answer this.....what would you say if you saw a 600+ hp LS7 Caddy SLS on the road????? That's what I'm going for.

    Thanls to all that support and think this is crazy cuz YES!!!!! It is crazy!!!!! hahahahaha

    Happy MLK everyone!!!!!

    Re: STSi?

    Talk about hijacking a thread. This was supposed to be about GM letting go of one of there STSi cars. If you want to talk about your pipe dream you can always start your own thread and not muck up one that is already running. How about a little courtesy for the original objective.

    I think you used "unique" when you really meant to use "ricer."

    I personally think those decals look straight gay on anything but the original car. Your car though; I wouldn't be caught dead riding in it.

    Re: STSi?

    I'm sure your Caddy is the most unique in the country...

    1976 Caddy, the intention of this car was to compete with the Sports Sedan's coming from the Krauts at the time, using an American Luxo-Barge from 1976. They totally nailed the look with the blacked out Grille and bumpers. The car gets moving with the help of a 454 LS6 making about 430 h.p. The car also sports a lowered suspension and custom three piece Gotti Wheels.

    Now this is a Seville that gives me some Wood!

    From Joe MacPherson's collection in Tustin Ca.

    Stickers and a fart can don't make your ride unique, just Hoopty.
