My first Olds!

Hi, My name is Martin and I bought my first Olds about 2 months ago. This sounds like the start of an AA meeting... Haha. I bought a 1969 442 convertible. I have some questions for the group that I will address in the tech forum. I live out on the left coast near Santa Barbara, CA. She's a beauty, isn't she?

Nice Ride! Love that color combo! As a first time owner, you should be WARNED that Oldsmobile ownership can become habitual!! Bought my first one in High School almost 45 years ago and have been chasing them ever since!! Welcome to the Club.

Santa Barbara is the place to cruise in a nice car like yours. Good choice. Doesn't get any better.

If you're into hardware, I'd say you'll be bringing some home this spring and summer. Enjoy!
