Another Oldsmobile lover
Permalink  
 


Hi everyone.  Dan here from Kansas City area.  I presently own a '46 Olds model 76 with a transplanted 455 from a '69 Delta.  The engine was rebuilt about six years ago with mostly stock parts, a few upgrades in the valve train and pistons but still has a stock bottom end.  The car is fun to drive and I am presently working on gauges.  This past Saturday got the dash lights and clock working.  I also own a '77 Cutlass Supreme that is completely stock with less than 40,000 miles.  I take the wife out for ice cream in the summer as it is a weekender and is presently stored under a cover in the garage.  I have owned many Oldsmobiles in the past and wish I would have kept them all.

'63 f85, '69 delat 88, '71 Cutlass S, '76 Cutlass S, '76 98 Regency, '78 Delta 88, '79 98 Sedan, maybe a few that I forgot.

I am retired from the Navy and presently working at Motorola Service Center repairing electronic communications equipment, looking forward to the day I can work full time for myself, playing with cars.

Dan,

Welcome to the CCC Forum! Glad to have you here!  Ah, another Olds admirer; good folk.

When it came to F-85's, I have always thought the 63 model year had the best lines.

I know of one guy who has 2 identical '63 F-85's.  One he purchased new, sold it and after nearly 2 decades repurchased it used.  Now, that shows devotion!

Again, glad to have you here.  Hope to see more of you, and others.
