April 2012 Runabouts to Rockets



President Larry Reid's Message

Spring is finally here, at least in most of the country. Here in the Pacific Northwest, winter sometimes lingers awhile and when spring comes, one breathes a sigh of relief. With spring also comes the annual re-birth of our Oldsmobiles. A happy time to say the least. Car shows, rallies, caravans, and just driving the cars always provides a regeneration of our zest for life. How can you replace the friendly wave or honk of a passing motorist or the “nice car” shout of the kids in the street as you drive proudly by? Hard to keep that smile to yourself, isn’t it?

Our national meet is fast approaching. For those of you who have not yet attended one of the meets in various parts of the country, they always prove to be fantastic experiences. Not only the fine Oldsmobiles that attend but the bringing together of people with like interests and the always interesting activities as part of the meet make them something you will never regret participating in. Sharon and Paul Mang are this year’s meet hosts. Columbus, Indiana is the site. We will be in a very historic area of the country as far as car manufacturing and racing. For example, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway is not far away. The dates again are June 20-23. Make your reservations early to be assured of having a room on site.
You may have read in some past issues of Runabouts to Rockets of the NAOC’s “Gathering Points.” These seem to really be picking up interest. If you have an opportunity in your area, where you are able to “gather” with your Oldsmobile friends, please let Wendy Crosby, Editor know so that an article and pictures can be included in an upcoming issue. These meets are meant to bring our members and their cars together at times other than just our national meets. So, take advantage of one in your area as they come along.

—Happy Oldsmobiling,
Larry (#5069)
