  1. Will be in the Family Forever!

    “I can’t believe I didn’t run across the Oldsjetfire website before.  Fantastic.  The ’64 to ’72 Cutlass crowd are very lucky to have all the resources they could ever wish for.  I know the ’61 to ’63 folks will probably always be swimming upstream but your website is great news...

  7. My First Jetfire

    When my wife and I were only 19 years old, we purchased a beautiful  1963 Oldsmobile Jetfire, 4-speed manual, red/white with a black/white interior.  It was the only car I ever bought brand new!  We  had to have my parents co-sign, which was a mistake because I certainly could not...
