  1. 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 registry in the general discussion section. Do know that this person volunteers at the RE Olds Museum. You might be able to contact the museum and establish contact with this person through the staff there. Keith
  2. ? 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!

    Being the owner of two Oldsmobiles, I can relate!

    old mechanical exhibition in France

    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

    Hershey Car Corrall 2017

    Thanks for posting the car corral pictures for those of us who could't be there in person.
  7. Matt, Wonderful car! Pushed the "like" button and ended up with the "haha" emoji. ??? Can't seem to change it. Keith
  8. On trips to our summer place in Northern Michigan, I've driven by a 1956 chevy 210 four door hardtop that's been for sale for the past year. I realized it was somewhat rare but didn't understand that fully until I saw your published numbers.

    CAR FOUND: '65 TO '69 CORVAIR MONZA COUPE

    Had a 1964 Monza convertible for 20 years with the 95 hp powerglide combo. Was skeptical about adequate power before I bought it, but it had surprisingly good low end grunt and was a really smooth running trouble free motor. It cruised well at highway speeds. Members of our local Corvair club often commented about how well it ran. I believe that the '65 Corvair on Craig's list that I posted is in the Petoskey, MI area where we have a summer place. I'm there frequently. Could probably do an eyes on for you if that would help with the info gathering process.

    What Was The First Car You Ever Drove?

    Started driving tractor solo at age six and with attached power equipment at age 8. Drove my Grandfather's 1949 Dodge Coronet at age 10. Not sure if this counts, but in a sense drove a 1940 Chevy coupe at age 3. The car was left in gear with the driver's door ajar. I sat on the floor, braced my back against the base of the seat and stepped on the starter pedal. My mother glanced out the kitchen window and saw the car lurching toward the apple tree. She promptly rescued the car and me.
