  1. I have friends who are the second owners of a 1965 Olds Cutlass Vista Cruiser station wagon which was initially purchased with trading stamps. The nuns in their local parish school needed suitable transportation for school use and solicited donations of stamps to secure its purchase.
  2. Driver's ed car was a 1962 Chevy 4 door sedan powered by a 6 cylinder mated to a stick transmission. The make or break test for passing the road portion of driver's ed was stopping and parking the car halfway up a steep hill on a country dirt road. Had to then restart and continue up the hill with rolling backward or stalling the engine. My license test car was my parents' 1956 Olds 88 4 door sedan, with the test administered by the county sheriff. Currently have the '56 Olds Super 88 in my avatar. Reliving my youth, it seems. 🙂
  3. 50 degrees in West Michigan today. Got to take both of my Oldsmobiles ('56 Super 88 & '70 Cutlass Supreme) out for hour long rides. Had the companionship of my wife and a cuppa joe to sip. Real treat to be able to do that in our area this time of year. 😊

  5. Regarding the color combo, my childhood neighbor had the same colors but in a different pattern. His car had the dark blue top and dark blue below the chrome spear on the sides. The light blue was between the two dark hues. I admired that car and have looked for years for this color combo, to no avail.
  6. Take a look at the Engels Coach Shop videos on Youtube. Great craftsmanship on display in the reconstruction of projects like this.
  7. Chistech, There was one of these cars on display at the RE Olds Club's Oldsmobile Homecoming this past June. It was a lighter green in color and meticulously restored. This same car has been on display at the RE Olds Museum in Lansing, MI. I contacted an acquaintance of the owner/restorer and have name of the car's owner. I don't feel free to share the owner's contact info as I haven't gotten his personal permission. Moreover, I don't see a way to do private messaging on this site. I will email the owner and alert him to your restoration thread as well as your posting of the
  8. ? Great car! Spent a lot of time poring over the pictures. Really like the interior exterior color combination. My car as seen in my avatar has a green interior. These cars are reflective of the wide variety of combinations available to the new car buyer. Wish it were so today!
  9. Being the owner of two Oldsmobiles, I can relate!
  10. Sabastienbuick, Thanks for posting the pictures of the antique tractors. First look for me at some of the early 20th century French models. Was Renault the dominant tractor manufacturer during that period of time? I see an American made McCormick-Deering there as well. I have 3 antique tractors myself. Two of these are tractors that I operated on our family farm. Keith
  11. Thanks for posting the car corral pictures for those of us who could't be there in person.
  12. Matt, Wonderful car! Pushed the "like" button and ended up with the "haha" emoji. ??? Can't seem to change it. Keith
