About a year ago a pal brought by their 56 Olds Holiday for us to do engine work, We decided to see what was up with this car, we started it up and it ran like poop, It was put on the back burner until we could get it in for a tear down. Well, while we were at it we just decided to check what the heck was making this car run so bad, It required a cylinder leak down check and a compression test, I beileve the HAMBers father,(who just recently passed away) did one and before it came on over and determined that #6 exhaust valve had leakage. It read zero! We confirmed it as well and tore it down. One of the reasons it was on the back burner was that we decided to gift this person power steering for the Olds which it didn't have when it left from the Lansing, MI. factory 1956. Well we wanted a factory OEM looking/feeling unit to put on this Holiday. It took fellow HAMBer Juicy Gee a little while to round up the exact era correct components. Thanks to him and The HAMB, these parts were found and this unit is complete and functional w/o leakage. We tore it down at the OK Car-ral, better known as Ozzie's Speed Shop in Alhambra. Took the heads in for a thorough reworking and modifying. The end result was a job well done by another pal! Now I must say that this particular Olds was instrmental in the initial rallying for saving Johnie's Broiler back in 2002 to 2008. We spent many mornings at breakfast having coffee and discussing our ideas as to how to just go about getting this job done & fitting into all of our busy schedules. I must say that this is the best thing about just having the HAMB and Pals! Everybody just would drop on in if they could and lend a hand. I think that we completed the project today!. It ran great! Steered great and looks better than I thought it would!!!! I'm proud to say that I and the owner have friends like J.Gee, Ozzie,Dennis and Joe,in addition to Hector at the Vintage Machine Shop-L.A. So you've been reading wondering who's car it is? It's Adriene's!!!!!! She's had it 20 yrs. Loved and cared for it all this time, drove it with dad by her side and of course her very talented husband John E. who shot so many images of the Broiler and is now looking to be able to cruise it over to her beloved Broiler and just sit in it and have a coffee and a burger! With all of our HAMB and Broiler Pals of course! Thank You guys for being able to help get A's Holiday back @ the Inn!, Drive-In that is!
