Cutlass S Convertible
While enjoying a few stories and cold beverages in the garage one evening with friends, I remarked “I am going to own a nice convertible before I am old and gray”, a statement that left my friends rolling on the floor in laughter. Their reply was simply, “Have you looked in the mirror lately?” Okay, the gray hair has out numbered my natural colored hair for a few years, and while I am in my late-fifties I seldom consider myself old. Perhaps my friends had a point, and it was time for me to seize the moment. After discussing it with my wife (Sandy), we agreed to see what was available and get an idea of what we could afford. Soon we discovered, a friend and fellow Oldsmobile enthusiast had decided to part with his ’68 Cutlass S Convertible. I had seen the car at countless car shows over the years and knew the whole story behind the car. It came from California as a rust free, straight-as-an-arrow car, and was repainted a few years ago. I knew from the moment I heard the car was for sale I had to make it mine. We soon agreed on a price, and even though it was a little more than I hoped to initially spend the quality of this great car made up for the difference.
