"Big Olds"     1947 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser

Introduction / Overview:

I purchased Project Big Olds from Steve Henderickson in 2001 as a black primered project.  Over the years I worked on him during the winter months and cruised him around in summer months.

Took seven years but in March 2008 I debute" him upstairs at the Detroit Autorama.

As of April 2010 I've driven him over 103,000 miles with my butt in the drivers seat.

Drivetrain: Odls 455 w/turbo 400

Body & Paint: Mike Howell from Volenteer Autobody and myself did all the body and paint work.  I learned how to weld, grind, prime, paint, clear on Big Olds.  I learned how to use a plasma cutter and torch.
