    Not one, not two, but FOUR Y-body Oldsmobiles at cruise night at Mt. Airy, MD (Jimmy Cone) last night. Not only that, but of the four, TWO were Jetfires (ok, one was a real Jetfire and one was a phantom).

    There was my 62 wagon, my friend Scott’s 62 Jetfire convert (the “phantom”), a 63 Cutlass convert, and a single-family owned, all-original 63 Jetfire. I don’t know how many people looked at Scott’s car and said they’d never heard of a Jetfire before, whereupon we pointed out that there were two of them on site. In prior weeks there has also been a 61 F85 four door at this cruise.

    I have so much fun at car shows with our Jetfire. We get the same thing, people just look all confused when they see under the hood.
    Is that 63 original paint or did you look that close?

    The 63 Jetfire is nearly all original, including the paint. The engine hasn’t been apart. The turbo was rebuilt 20-30 years ago. It was bought new by the current owner’s father.

    The red Jetfire belongs to John Cuneo. Met him back in 1982. His dad’s car and its a 4 speed.
