Hi I am a new member as of today (13/05/09). I live in Huntingdon UK. I own an Oldsmobile Dynamic 88 (4-Door Bubble Top)

I dont know if it is allowed or if it will work but i have put a link/address of another website where there are some pictures of my car plus a bit of info. This article and pictures were posted by the previous owners son in law on a mini forum as he was into minis.

http://www.theminiforum.co.uk/forums/in ... opic=53088

I hope to put some of my own pictures on in the near future (when i work out how to upload them).

As can be seen in the pictures the original colour was a bronze or brown colour but is now metallic copper mist with the roof done in old english white.

The previous owner did/had the bulk of the restoration done and i bought it as you see it in the pictures. I have done some more to it over the last two years and will try to post pics as it is now.

The engine is the 371CU with auto trans, A/C and Power Brakes.

I would love to hear from anyone in the UK that has got a 1960 Oldsmobile (if there is anyone). I have never seen another one yet.

Anyone wishing to talk to me please feel free to call me on my mobile 07762 - 747643.

I feel i must say a big thankyou to scott/toolbox ? for setting up this site as i have already seen some interesting articles and am looking forward to reading a lot more of them over the next few weeks.

Its a pity i couldnt find the site a couple of years ago when i first bought the car, but better late than never.

Unfortunately i must sign off now as it is midnight over here and i am up for work at 0600.

Will post again very soon with more details about myself and the car.

Regards to all Russell.

Welcome aboard!! I went ahead and embedded your photos since they were already hosted on photobucket. If you have them hosted there, you can just cut and paste the [img] tag line and paste it in here. Great looking car!! There's a few other guys with '60s on your side of the pond...Germany, France, and Finland so far. I've got some really cool vintage photos from a guy named Geoff over in your neck of the woods...he had a '60 back in the 1970s and he scanned some of his pictures for me. I'm going to make them into a special feature when I have time. I also got an e-mail from a guy in Japan with one the other day...that's a first :). Doesn't look that was originally an export car...I think they all had little round reflectors on the bumpers. I like that color combination too...looks great.
Anyway, welcome :P . Glad to have you hear.

Russ,

I don't know about the car, but I sure would take the dog!

Do those valve covers say "Holden Rocket" on them? If so, was your ride built in Australia?

Nice looking car. Like the gauge pod on the dash!

Hi, OLDS D88--------------As far as i know the dog now resides in Canada with its owner who emigrated from the UK shortly after selling me the car.

Someone may well correct me here, but as i understand it all the 371CU and 394 CU were rocket series engines the 371 being painted gold when they left the factory and the 394 green. As mine is the 371 its gold so i guess when the previous owner did the engine up he deceided to paint GOLDEN ROCKET on the rocker covers. I think it is a nice touch so i have left it that way.

The gauge pod is also a nice touch (previous owner) and is painted the same colour as the rest of the car so does not really look out of place and houses the all important Tempreature and Oil Pressure gauges.

Just as a piece of trivia, (I WAS TOLD THIS BY A RELATIVE WHO LIVES IN AUSTRALIA) It is against the law to drive a left hand drive car on the road in Australia. So any car purpose built for their market at home or abroad would have been RHD. You could import a LHD from say USA or Canada but it would still need to be converted to RHD before you can drive it on the road. There has been some talk of changing this law but to my knowledge this has not changed yet.

I will double check when i do a more in depth post about my car but if memory serves me correct my car was built in Delaware USA If i am honest i havnt got a clue where that is in USA and i think i should really study a map and find out.

Many Thanks for your questions and comments.

Regards. RUSSELL.
