Well I lived in the day when that model came out and I drooled when I saw it. Unfortunately with my wages at the time it was unaffordable. I settled for a Hurst Olds 442 at 3,100 out the door. :-)

An Olds 442? Love that car, one of my acquaintances had one back in the day, and that was a really super auto.

There was one at the same auto show, so here are some shots of it:

Nice. I had a newer model, a 1968.

Oh my, that is a beautiful car!

The 68 model was the one my friend drove. I loved the lines that started with the 68 models. A timeless look, they still look good today.

Well that is not my car but another photo of the same model and color I had. About two years after I bought the Olds I sold it and bought a 396 Chevelle Super Sport. Big mistake. Thanks.
