heres my buddy howards, and a dinosaur!
Here's my buddy Bill's, 41 OLDS (Joker 41 here on the HAMB)
His son bought it for him and sent it out from Chicago. Very cool car, flathead 6 and a hydromatic. I should try to adopt that boy
Here's a couple of pics of Howard's Gasser
Here is mine, air ride and some cheep customtricks
some tecnical shit...but now?
Heres my 64 I bought from a fellow HAMBER. Its a work in progress, but can be driven anywhere....unless its raining
I really like you '56, nice and subtle and well done, not 100% sold on the engine colour though, but hey, mine was ford blue when I got the car. Would love to know what your MC and booster set up is off and how you set up your swinging pedals ?
Heres a shot of my 54 hard top.
Here a few pictures of my 57 Olds Super 88, 2 door hardtop. Facrtory J-2 "W" car.
Now that is BEAUTIFUL!!!
Hey, I sold this car to a guy in Long Island. Anyone ever see it up that way? I just wonder how it's doing.
I raced this car for years at Mt. clemmens and Flat rock speedways in mIchigan,,,350 OLDS V8 beat a LOT of chevys.
Still build and race 350 olds V8's for 1/4 mile OVAL racing.
Note on the picture,,,the tech guys would measure from the firewall to the distributor to see if the engine was in stock location.
but, I wanted to move the engine back to get more rear weight,
sooo,, I just slid the whole body back on the frame about 4 inches, and moved the engine back, then cut out the wheel wells...never got caught.
Just picked this baby up last month, a 1965 Cutlass It's really hard to find an Olds in Thailand. We do things a little different over here since import tax is so high we put Jap engines in as they are cheaper (1/3 the cost because they come out of wrecked cars already in country)) so if you do not recognize the motor it is a Lexus V-8, 32 valves, 4 overhead cams, fuel injection, dual distributors (one for each bank) and variable valve timing (when I got it it had a 6 cylinder Toyota in it). With a set of Flowmasters she sounds and runs great.
Take a look at my webbsite and look at "tvärnit", that`s hard braking in Swedish. There are some pics that maby helps you a litle. MC and booster is from an Olds -85 but anny GM G-body will fit really nice. About the color, I mixed it myself... it`s low budget
and cheers to you or "skål" in Swedish
I have two more pics from Dennis aka Young Mans 56 Olds sitting in the weed.
Here is my Toy, slowly coming along.
My comfortable 56 Olds on my deck.
Heres mine, Not the prettiest, but it runs! Olds 455

Some more 57.
figure ill add to the olds thread.... my ugly bastard!! 65 delta 88 holiday 4 door hardtop 425 super rocket, long, loud, low, and slow
Thought I would update my photos as i just got back the bumpers from the chrome shop. I like the chrome look better than the painted bumper look.
Here's my '49. It's taking me forever, but i'm tryin'.
Heres my 64 F-85 driver. Put in a mild built 468 olds, and 700 trans. Drive it every day. I love this car.
Also my old 64 Super 88 (sold to my buddy) its a driver too.
Just an FYI, I have this posted in the classified, but the rear end is now sold.
1960 Olds 373 w/auto trans, out of a 2200 mile car. Everything is factory original, motor has been sitting in this garage since 1960.
$600 takes the whole thing, to be picked up here in Columbus.
Send me a pm if interested.
BTW, the first car I ever wrecked was my mom's 1969 Cutlass. I still think about that car.
this is my baby. Had it ten years now. 455 with a th400. She's ready for some color.Any suggestions or photo shop ? I was thinking of a grayish green with off white cream colored wheels. eather that or compitition orange.
