New to me, my 1974 Laguna S3 w/ 454. I just bought it three months ago. Now I just put it up for the winter. Engine has 580hp with only 140miles, body just turned 25,000miles last week. Im slowly going to make this car into a Resto-Mod. I am looking for a whole front clip that has a chome bumper, I cant trade mine because im keeping it. LOTS MORE PICS SOON!!!

Looks pretty good.

I think you're the only person I have seen that wanted to turn a Laguna into a Malibu. Most people want to turn a Malibu into a Laguna, lol.

I have thought of converting mine into a Laguna many times and many times I have said "no way". I was the same way when I was trying to decide whither to build up my 400 or get a big block or get an LS engine. I would change my mind about once a week. Well, one day I made up my mind and jumped. Now I wish I had just built up the 400. It only had 42,000 original miles on it and its still sitting in my garage. JB

I wanted to convert to a Laguna front, but after discovering that there isn't much weight difference between them & Malibu fronts, I'll keep my chrome front bumper. I might buy a fiberglass goon front some day if it goes strip only though.

Looks great!

Gotta admit, I'm not a big fan of the slanted nose on the later Lagunas but these ones look really sharp. If I wasn't apparently the only guy who likes the stacked headlights even more, I'd probably swap to that front end.

Good luck with her.

You're not the only one. There's probably a few more members on here that I forgot, but here's a couple.

I didnt like the stacked square ones when I got mine either, but its come to grow on me...even though I STILL think about putting the 74 S-3 nose on mine.



Hey Cdub....NICE looking car by the way!!

Sorry, didn't mean to take the topic off it's rails. No

But glad to see some love for the stacked set-up none the less. It's an odd thing to me. I think straight from the factory, something about them looked awkward and "granny". However, it can also look incredibly stylish and aggressive if done right and is very unique.

Again though, the 74 Laguna front is also very nice and I get the itch every now and then where I envision it on my own car.

That's one of my favorite color combos. She'll be pretty sweet once you ditch the Rally wheels. Laughing Just my little joke, no offense meant.
