Default '69 Olds 442

My cousin sent me a couple pics of his recently completed "labor of love". My uncle (his father) bought the car new and drove it until he passed in, ummm... 1992 if I recall correctly. It was in sad shape then and sat in storage for several years before the rebuild began. Several more years later, it's back to its former glory, plus a few performance enhancements.

I kid you not, seeing it again brings a tear to my eye. I first rode in the car when it was new and last in the '80s sometime. I have two more cousins who also caught the car bug from our uncle and his 442. Four young boys were forever influenced and one of those boys is responsible for the bodywork and paint.

RIP Uncle Glen
