The cool thing about cars is that people can like what they like and it's an expression of
who they are..... I've actually pondered some Pontiacs, because I'm a fan of headlights that are
stacked instead of next to each other, but I really understand the Oldsmobile motor better than
the rest of them. I've had a Pontiac or two that were good to me, but want an Oldsmobile. I'm
stuck in a rut!!

I haven't seen that one yet... but I do all of my Craigslist searches on "Oldsmobile" and this
guy never mentions that his Cutlass is an Oldsmobile. Seems like a nice car. I'll add it to the
"watch" list.

Well... we are in a bit of a holding pattern with the trip to Michigan to look at the stick shift, 66 442.
The owner doesn't have the title in his name, and I told him I wasn't a potential purchaser unless he
had the title in his name. This process takes 7-10 days to clear up according to the Michigan Secretary
of State. The owner started the process on Monday, 9/11. Hopefully, I will be able to go see the car
on Wednesday 9/20, but no promises. In the meantime, I keep looking for other potential candidates.
This one popped up on Ebay the other day:

That '64 looks real nice for the money, but seems to be a little too much like the Dynamic IMO.

I was thinking that way a bit too. I've been avoiding that color because I had it on
the Dynamic 88. Hopefully I won't have to consider this car.

I just got off of the horn with the owner of the 66 Olds in Vassar, Mi. We are slated
to meet on Sunday. The goal is to go up there with a Penske truck and auto trailer
and haul it home. Hopefully, the deal will go down!
