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.
the second url is a link to our car at the movies last fall.
Gotta go. Definitely be back soon.

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.

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 !!

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.
