I know a couple Indiana guys follow along here. Just wanted to post that I will have the 62 automatic Jetfire and 63 4 speed Jetfire at the World of Wheels show in Indianapolis in February. I will also have the extra Jetfire engine on display between the two cars.
Sunday night will be a long night. The show is over at 6:00 and I have to get both cars home that night. I have one enclosed trailer and live almost two hours from the show. I figure I will not be done till 2:00 in the morning with loading and unloading two cars in two trips.February 8, 2018 at 1:04 pm #13450

Wow what a display. Let us know how it goesFebruary 9, 2018 at 6:52 pm #13464JimNoelParticipant
Looks great Eric! Have fun!February 9, 2018 at 9:07 pm #13467
Holy cow am I tired! It was only the first day from 3:00 PM to 10:00 PM ( I left at 8:30) and my feet are killing me and loosing my voice. They had a band that I had to talk over with many people wanting details about the car. Tomorrow is 10 AM to 10 PM. I should have taken a couch to relax in, lol. Lots of fun though.
I have two new leads on Jetfires. One parts car and another that is supposedly a good one. We will see if those pan out.February 10, 2018 at 8:43 am #13468macf85Participant
Nice Eric! Side by side shows how completely different the 62 & 63 bodies are, aside from the roof and windows. Wish I lived closer to Indy. I’d like to check out the 63 closer. Do you know if the passenger side mirror was factory installed? Or maybe dealer installed? Or one of the past owners? I’ve never seen one. Is it the same as the driver’s side?February 10, 2018 at 8:35 pm #13469
The guy I got it from had it installed when they done the paint and body work. I believe both sides are the reproductions that are offered but not 100% sure about that.February 11, 2018 at 6:32 am #13470
People sure love learning about the Jetfire model. It is fun to bring awareness to people that have no idea these cars were even made.

Over all there is not that much to tell about the show but sure had fun. Both Jetfires and the engine were for sure the buzz of the show. I had people coming to me saying that these cars are all they heard about all day till they got to my area to look themselves. I did not leave the cars much at all myself. I did have a guy looking pretty hard at the 63, not sure if he will follow through and buy it or not, will just have to wait and see.
Ryan Evans from Counting Cars in Vegas was looking at the cars when I showed up Sunday morning. He was there before the show was open to the public, I am sure to avoid the crowds trying to get pictures and autographs. I just pretended to not know who he was and said hello. He did not stick around so did not have a conversation with him.
Sure was fun getting to talk to people curious about how the system worked. I was even encouraged with the younger generation and their questions. There were a couple occasions where a “millennial” would be really wanting details about the system and some of them could understand most of what I was saying, lol. The funniest part is that most of them know what the modern “Snow System” of fluid injection is and thought it was something new. I just laughed and said that Oldsmobile was doing tuner cars long before it was cool…
Looking forward to going to another large show sometime.March 3, 2018 at 2:51 pm #1351062cutlassconvertParticipant
Very nice Eric. Luke’s looking forward to getting the 62 down to the Sat morning drive in show local to us here. You NEVER seem them around.
