    Looks like a great showing, but I only count 7 Jetfires?
    How do the Olds people react to Jetfires? Is interest gaining?

    They really liked them. I don’t think many of them had ever been around one.

    Thanks for posting the pictures. It was truly good to meet some of you in person & see all of these great cars together in one place. Great to see the excellent cooperation & help from all the Oldsmobile enthusiasts. Can’t wait til next year.

    While at the Homecoming show I had three different guys come up to me to tell me about a Jetfire they had stashed away. Two of the guys had pictures of their cars and the other knew enough that I suspect he was truthful. The two I saw pictures of, those guys both said they know that nobody in the Jetfire community knows about them and have been in storage for decades. All three guys were not interested in selling. The reason I am telling this is because I keep thinking that not many more will be found but they keep popping up. Who knows, maybe someday we will have 100 of them on the road with working turbos!

    Another story, Scott and I were both standing next to my display engine and someone come up and ask if we would be interested in a couple gallon of Turbo Rocket Fluid for $20 each. I said I would take one and if Scott didn’t take the other I would take it also. Scott snapped up the other one also. Not that I really needed it but how can you turn an NOS gallon jug of it down for that. He said he had been storing it all these years and was time to let it go. They are in a different jug that I had ever seen before. I will post pictures of it later.

    Here is the style Jug that Scott and I got. All the gallon jugs I have had in the past had the little handles on them. I am seriously thinking about starting to use this original fluid from the gallon jugs in my 4 speed car after I am done restoring it. Some of the alcohol has evaporated through the plastic but I could add a little to top it off. Gas and alcohol over time will evaporate through a plastic jug. I have 4 gallons of it in jugs that have all the lettering worn off. I will likely use that stuff up before making more.
