I had a great time at the Nationals as well. It was nice to meet Eric, John and their wives. I found it amazing that at an Oldsmobile national event that there are so many people who don’t know about the ’61 – ’63 215 aluminum V8 or the turbocharged Jetfires. Hopefully by binging our cars more people became aware of them and will share with others.
When we first got there I had a guy ask what it was. After I told him it was an all aluminum engine he thought I was full of it. After i raised the hood he couldn’t believe it. Not many aluminum engine parts in 61. Olds and Buick were way ahead of there time.
