  2. with the crank stuck out the bottom of the pan and drive shaft shoved into the rear axle, i am afraid that there is probably not much left to start with. but i'd sure give it the old college try.

    Someone still needs to redo that orphan. A lot of stuff will have to be made new, one off. Not a job for the average fabricator/hobbist, huh.

    ROLLING DOWN THE HILL? He parked it on a non-level ground without making sure it was secured? Careless mistake cost him a bunch. Too bad.

    Bad luck :( The R.I.P comment the poster on that board made seems a bit hasty ... That FINE Olds will probably be back on the road in a year or two .. or 3 . Wonder what it looked like when the owner bought it ..? Might have been found in a far worse shape than what it`s in at present.

    Doesnt look bad to me, I'd fix it! Sheet-metal is just that, as long as it hasn't been in a fire its fixable? Feel bad for the guy, hope he has enough years to see it through.

    The wrecked car was purchased by Rick Quirin. The Before shots of the car and the wrecked shots are posted on
    It is the first vehicle listed under the menu tab of "Share your pre-1930s Oldsmobiles" If you click on the photo you get the before shots and if you click on the text link you get the wrecked shots. Check it out... it's a heck of a project.

    Very sad! There are no parts for these cars, what is left is a doner for other restorations. Makes you think about all the car shows on unlevel lots filled with people, if you part it set the parking brake or chock the wheels.

    I remember that. Something about a train car full of them at the bottom of Lake Michigan.
