September 2012 Runabouts to Rockets


  
President Larry Reid's Message

Recently we lost one of our long time NAOC members. Clay Mollman was, at one time, Runabouts to Rockets editor and NAOC Treasurer. He devoted many years to the success of our club. Clay restored several Oldsmobiles and submitted many technical articles to the magazine. Both Sky Borst and Fred Duesch have written tributes to Clay. We’ll miss you, Clay.

There is always a lull after the NAOC Nationals. Paul and Sharon have buttoned up there meet responsibilities and Dick White is busy preparing for the 2013 NAOC Nationals in Elmira, NY. Greg Minges will be returning judging sheets to those cars judged on the show field and the proud owners will be busy evaluating their Oldsmobiles and making the necessary improvements to make their car even nicer. It’s true - a restoration is NEVER really done.

This issue will recap this year’s meet. There were more Oldsmobiles on the show field than there has been in most of our past meets. Thanks to all those who were able to bring their cars for all of us to enjoy.

In regards to the NAOC ad hoc committee that was under the stewardship of Vice President Jim Schultz, after much careful research the collective committee found that we are, and have been, running a very tight ship. That was, of course, what we wanted to hear but we all were more at ease when the committee confirmed that in their report. We established an advertising budget for the purpose of getting our club’s name out there in automobile publications. Nice job to Jim, Judy Badgley, Mike Cibulas, Phil Fischer,and Bud Guyer.

As we move into the fall, enjoy yourself and your Olds.


—Happy Oldsmobiling,
Larry (#5069)
