  1. …..At the end of 1963 we bought an Olds Cutlass convertable. 4 speed on floor, 330 cu in, 290 Horse power, in midnight blue. The magnificence of this car is pretty damn near undefineable…perfect in every way. In 1965 it got stolen…bahhhh, Humbug

  2. In November 1966 I ordered a new 1967 442 from “Rooster” Bush Pontiac – Olds, in Lenoir, NC. He gave me a choice, have it delivered or he would pay to fly me to Lansing, MI to pick it up on drive-out order. I got on the plane! It was gold, with black interior, close ratio 4-speed, and 3:90 posi-traction rearend. More than once I’ve dreamed that I stored the car in a warehouse, but can’t remember where it’s located! It was a great car that surprised more than one of my Ford and Chevy driving friends.
