Hi, there's a 1960 Oldsmobile club in USA (which I belong to) and I suppose that the president (Dick Major) could answer to your question. His email is : dmajor@netonecom.net
It would probably take place in Lansing, Michigan. I'd love to come with my 60 Olds but USA are so far away from home... :cry:

Good idea...I actually know Dick Major. I was a member of his '60 Olds club about 8 years ago. I found his site and sent him an e-mail asking if he still had his club. He does, and I was actually really surprised that he remembered me :o . He said membership always starts every June, so I might sign up again then.

Good idea though...if anyone would know it's probably him.

I'm pretty psyched for the 50th. We've been working on our car since late '04. Well, maybe I should say we, along with others have been working on it. So far, the motor was rebuilt and the body is presently being done. Just picked up all the chrome yesterday.
We've taken around the Midwest to shows. Last year we headed to Green Bay WI (120 Miles away) As part of the weekend, we stayed in a wonderful little town, Seymour. Each year they have "Hamburger Fest" A one day event that celebrates the first hamburger sandwich, alleged to have been made right there in Seymour! Down the road from Seymour is a place called Freedom. Three years ago, a guy opened a brand new outdoor theater. Here's a kicker, they serve beer! Ah, Wisconsin.

Gotta go. Definitely be back soon.

How cool is that! We had a drive-in up in Missoula (about 45 miles north of here). I went there a few times when I was in college, but they shut it down probably 7 years ago. They took the screen down, and now it's just a big lot overgrown with weeds :cry: . The parking "humps" are still there, but that's about it. They had a bunch of old advertisement reels they would run before the movies...I remember a Dr. Pepper ad from the early '70s that always ran...the film was pretty beat up at that point, but they were always fun to watch. Going in a convertible must just be the ultimate though.

And I'm curious what events are going to be happening in Lansing for the anniversary...will OCA have anything official? I was wondering if GM would do anything, but since Oldsmobile itself is extinct, I kind of doubt it.

1. Yes, the 50th is comming up and my gal and I couldn't be any more excited about it. She'll be done by then and so will I, probably. hah $$

2. Welcome, DAN. Love the convertible, glad you found us.

3. I plan on joining Dick's 1960 Olds club when my car is done, but I've been a faithful follower for years. Glad to hear he's still around, been wondering a lot about 'em and the club lately.

I'm still a member the 60 olds club. Haven't gotten any "newsletters" of late. Members tend to forget or are no longer interested, my guess. But, every once in a while... France, Italy, Germany, New Zeeland, Switzerland, Canada etc. My turn will be in 2011!

Yes Dan, I'm a member of the 60 Olds club too and didn't receive any letters since few months. Either there is a loss of interest from the members, or I forget to pay my due and was erased from the roster... :lol: :oops:

Whatever we have to live with our time and progress (even if we love antique cars) and forums like this one are the best way to keep in touch beetween Olds lovers. Letters are fine but forum is finer and more living.

Hum... about the 50th anniversary of the 60 Olds, I will drink some Champagne with some friends, antique car nuts like me. And if there is no champagne beer will be fine...HIIPS !! :oops: :lol:

I have a feeling some have passed away or just lost track of time. As far as I know, Dick sends out a reminder to the person in charge of the newsletter. Email is way fast but, not all the members have email or have any interest in email.
I really love getting letters from France, Italy etc.
During the 50th, I wish there was some way to "ship" members on a budget. I'd pay something to meet them, even if they don't have their car along. Just meeting them and sharing stories would (could) be worth the $$.

Wish I could do something special for the 50th...as of right now, about all I'll be able to do is buy a t-shirt :oops: . Speaking of such things, I ordered one of the "50 years of fun" mugs to use at work. It hasn't gotten here yet, but I'm looking forward to parking it on my desk...it'll be fun to show it off to my coworkers.
Since there's virtually no chance that I'll be able to make it to any events for the 50th anniversary, maybe someone who can make it could wear a t-shirt for me one day...

We're saving our pennies 'til we can afford the gas n room. The car was out at a show last weekend... the crowd was diggin it. The wife was pretty proud. Four years ago, she probably was trying to figure out why she got involved with a goof like me... now, it's different. We've still got the interior to do. I'm thinking of holding out until after the fiftieth. I've got a couple of other things to do with the car. I'd love to put duals on it.

We're still at a point where there just aren't any pennies to save :( . We've still got some time though so who knows...although with the kids being the age they are, any kind of trip automatically becomes an adventure of a whole different kind :P . Still haven't gotten mine to any kind of show at all...maybe next summer. Wish I had the money to just finish the interior...it would be pretty much done if I could get door panels for it. Well, that and the exterior stainless...but I don't have any door panel on the drivers side at all, so I'd call that a bigger priority.

And yes, you need duals...years and years ago I bought an original block off plate for dual exhaust and used that when I had all new exhaust put on it. I've seen repro plates on ePay before. Or you could make your own...it's just a triangular piece of metal with holes drilled in it. The original is cast iron, and is somewhat concave on the side that faces the manifold...not that it matters at all. A new plate would work as well as an original one. I had big long glass packs put on it...if I was looking just for better performance I would have used Flowmasters or something, but the sound of a V8 running through packs just screams 1960s :twisted: . It really does sound good...just the right combination of loud enough to get your attention, but quiet enough that it's not irritating when you're in the car for a long time.

Okay, so we are heading into the fiftieth year... I'm trying to get my local new car show to feature our sixty. Truthfully, in Sept or Oct of 1959, Olds was starting to produce the 60 model. The converts were probably being ordered etc.
Anyway, I'm hoping that the group that host the shows, ADAMM (auto dealers of mega milwaukee) will allow us to show. The have an area every year that features "classics" The local D.A.R.E. sheriff cars are there and all that.
Cross the fingers. I plan to be very persistant. (irritating)

I think in 2010 either OCA or NAOC National show will be in Lansing MI. Should be a great show of cars in that city. Maybe we could try to have a get together at that show.
I will confirm which club is having the national show there.

I like the NAOC but have never participated in an OCA National. The antique show is funny because our cars are so "new"
