    Lets see those Oldsmobile's & Olds Rocket Mills

    All and any, projects or finished

    Ransom E. Olds started all this, I'm sure glad he did

    Harley Earl added his styling

    49 - 50 - 51 Olds made history on the stock car track

    My favorite is the 50 Olds 88 club coupe i'm on my 3rd 88 now it looks a lot like my 1st light gray primer & Red Rims it had a 50 303 with a 53 Olds 4 barrel manifold & a Rochester 4 barrel & that roared
    Three on the tree & Zephyr gears

    The current 88 has a 57 371 4 barrel & 57 Olds 4 speed hydro not running as of yet

    Thanks to Flop's tip i got my Olds here from Florida & my fenders from California

    Heres my coupe coming from Fla

    the 3rd looking a lot like the 1st, except the 55 Plymouth bumper

    my friend Larry's, Hot 52 Olds Super 88 Ragtop fresh off the transport from Arizona cooling down in the snow

    this Olds 455 goes down the road just fine

    Thats funny....and so true. :D
    I just did the Oldsmobile Nationals with folks from all over the country about 500 cars total. I was the only 1940-1948 Oldsmobile there and the only 30's model was a 1938 stocker. I was expecting upturned noses but was quite impressed with the number of people that actually complimented me on the build. Most were shocked when they learned I had another one waiting in the wings.:D

    Here's a pic of mine... '64 Cutlass F-85. I hope to do a motor refresh (stock original 330 still in place) in the coming year or so. I have more pics in my gallery. I love this car.

    Coupe ute sounds interesting, did they make more and your one is the only survivor or is it a Chev 1/2 breed ?

    Here should be my 55, really need to get some decent pics.

    Don't be shy about that UTE! Post some pics to get others excited.
    My favorite thing about Billetproof was seeing people have fun with their cars even if it wasn't finished.

    BTW I just started an Olds group in the Social Groups section. Doesn't seem to be a lot of activity online for Olds groups but there are a few Olds gearheads on here.
