N.A.O.C. pics @ Lansing, Mi.

Wow, was great to see the pictures you took earlier today on the judging field; both Friday and Saturday have been picture-perfect days following a hot and humid Tuesday and Wednesday, and a somewhat-rainy Thursday afternoon. A big hand is in order for Doug and Judy Badgley and their fine staff for hitting a home run as only the Lansing folks can do, and to NAOC President Larry Reid, for presiding over the positive changes the Club has made as we move into the future.

Highlights of the week for me included a nice cruise Friday night to Dimondale, about five miles south of Lansing; several dozen classic Oldsmobiles were led by a police escort to a nice small-town Friday evening; as well as talking to about a dozen people throughout the week, who were past employees of Oldsmobile or Fisher Body here in Lansing. I told them their legacy is right in front of them, on the show field.

Just got back from the Saturday evening banquet, which included the inaugural Helen Jones Earley Memorial Award, and an announcement that the AACA, with the help of Steve Moskowitz, was a benefactor in helping make this award possible.

Just another great example of how the AACA helps promote and perpetuate all the great things associated with this hobby of ours.

By the way, thanks for including a picture of my black '62 Starfire in your collection of pictures; I am pleased that you thought highly enough of my car to do so, as there were dozens of fine examples representing the best that Oldsmobile had to offer throughout the years.

Well. I have to admit that I have weak spot in me for a '62 Starfire, which might have biased me slightly, but frankly, I have a yearning to own many Olds of various years, just so many great cars made by Oldsmobile. The styling of Olds, specifically the Starfires of the early sixties, was, in my opinion far superior to what the others had to offer. When I was in junior high in the early '70's the car to own by many in that era was a '63 Impala, a nice car, but the Olds were just so much better looking.
