A few notes on the Olds:

The interior was redone in PA in 1976, trunk interior and headliner were redone by Rich Perez - RP Interiors in the early '90's.

Don Renaldo from Glen Cove installed a 1 1/8" Nova Rally Sport front sway bar and custom made the rear sway bar, as wellas the motor mounts, front and rear shock mounts, and dash guage panel. He installed the AC, 5 point seat belts, and a second heater under the drivers seat for us old guys!

interior clock re-do by the late George Renaldo.

In '89, Paul "Woody" Wood nosed and shaved the door handles, removed all the stainless and filled 147 holes before paintind a two tone Rolls Royce pattern!

Paul Levine of Classic Craft did the under dash wiring, fuse panel, and cruise control.

Cocomo at Macungie, PA etched the glass in '90.

Don Figliozzi from Glen Cove pin stripped the car in '93.

Alcapp Auto Glass installed the bronze glass with bronze-on-bronze shaded windshileds.

From David: "I drove the car up Mount Washington in New Hampshire in 1994 and 2006. It is not a trailer or trophy queen. Nancy and I cruise whenever possible - rain or shine, (sunshine preferred)!!
