I can't advise you as I don't know your mechanical ability or your price range for a replacement. I can say that a 79 GM car will require some mechanical ability. If you have a fairly high price range ($50K+) I could recommend some cars that are faster, get better mileage, have more hauling space, and some have AWD.

My wife inherited a 2002 red Trans Am convertible from her now deceased 91 year old step father. We’re not selling it.
That means he got it in his 70s.....fucking cool. Best of luck with that!:dude:

FWIW,if i bought it i would "ruin"it as one of my buds has a 455 engine ready to bolt in,could probably find an old GTO carb for it too.same guy built my 400 back in the early 2000s and it was a beast.

If your timing chain jumped, be sure to replace the ttesion pulley. That part is vert often the cause of this problem.
