No Lou, not done yet. However, the hood, fenders, trunk lid and doors are at the body shop and he has been working his magic on them between his bigger jobs. I'm lined up to go in in the spring. I will do a thread on the car once he starts full time on it. I have been picking away again on various parts. I just finished assembling and restoring my column shift tilt steering column. I understand you've made some changes car wise. Good to hear from you.

Excellent. Looking forward to it. What is it that you are working on ?

I have been picking away again on various parts. I just finished assembling and restoring my column shift tilt steering column.

VERY nice. Looks fantastic.

Yes. A few since we last talked. Long story short, I have two projects and limited funds. At a stand still.

Good to hear from you.
Same here.

Now that I think about it.....I think there were some '72 - '73 Ford Mustangs that had a lime green similar to the Olds, too?





editted to add the Ford Grabber Lime

Them old farts at GM in 1971 would refuse to paint a car that bright lime green. May have been what caused the Fisher Body strike. What year was that strike again ?? 71 ??? mmmm interesting.

As a fan of both Oldsmobile and AMC cars, I believe the bright green is very close to to the 1970 only AMC color "Big Bad Green"
