I intend to remove the emblems to clean things up properly. Thanks for the heads up on the sealer Eric.

So, to continue with my story: Imagine my surprise – less than 2 months following our ‘discovering’ the existence of the Jetfires and thinking I would love to ‘someday’ be lucky enough to find one – one pops up on an Oldsmobile Buy & Sell page. Mark & Harrison Cole (father son team at Sierra Auto Restorations) pulled an original 4 speed car out of the drive in shed of the original owner in California on May 4th.

Among all the people commenting on the car was my comment – “OMG: totally interested in this car: keep me informed if you decide to sell it.” That car would not leave my mind so within a few hours I sent a private messaged to Harrison asking about the car and working towards ‘trying to buy it from them.
The more I saw, the more I knew this was the car for me: all my hopeful ‘tick boxes’ had tick marks – Turbo intact, factory 4 speed manual, original, unmolested, rust free, Plus a white exterior and red interior is a favorite of mine (my 61 Fiesta Wagon is white w red too) All I had to do is convince them to sell the car to me’
