February 2012 Runabouts to Rockets



President Larry Reid's Message

Well, here we are in 2012 already! Amazing just how fast the time goes by. It seems as though it is already time to begin making plans for this year’s national meet in Indiana. I’ve been in contact with Paul and Sharon Mang, 2012 meet directors, for sometime about their plans for the meet. They will have some interesting activities planned and we all are hoping for a large turnout. Watch your Runabouts to Rockets for specifics. Begin now checking your calendar and making plans to attend.

By now you have all received the newest NAOC Directory. This is the product of a great amount of effort by Membership Chairman, Paul Hartlieb and Runabouts to Rockets Editor, Wendy Crosby. Thanks to both of these dedicated people for a high quality job.
I’m wondering about members’ restoration that have been started or finished over the winter. It’s always interesting to see or hear about the current projects that our members are involved with and just when we can look forward to another fine Oldsmobile on the road. Let us know, through Runabouts to Rockets “Letters to the Editor” how you’re coming on your car.

As for me, my current project is a 1950 Oldsmobile “98” convertible that I purchased last summer from member Wayne Ardo. This is a rarity in that it has only 44K on the clock and has no rust anywhere. We’re doing a complete restoration on the car and it should be ready for the 2013 NAOC Nationals in Elmira, New York. Stay tuned.
Hope that you are looking forward to spring and many fun outings.

—Happy Oldsmobiling,
Larry (#5069)
