1.How it all Started



1956 Oldsmobile 88 four door sedan

Back in 1988, my niece in South Carolina called me and said she was buying a 1956 Oldsmobile, for $100 a month for 15 months, then a $1000 lump sum payment, well she didn't have the $1000, she didn't want a loan from me, she wanted to see someone in the family get the car, but the seller had buyer for $2500, if she couldn't come up with the final payment, she asked if her Uncle George could buy it for the $1000, he laughed at her, and said yeah if he can do it within 24 hours, 14 hours later, I was on his door step put a G-whiz in his hand, and drove the car from South Carolina back to New jersey

I never restored this car, I just drove it for three years, and later sold it for $750, but this old beast got me hooked on the old car hobby, here's the only photos I have of her, she was a lot of fun, and like all the cars, I wish I still had her
