"55 2 Door Hard Rod"     1955 Oldsmobile Eighty Eight

Introduction / Overview: This is my 1955 Oldsmobile 2 Door hardtop that I bought when I was 13 (I worked by the hour to pay it off).  I never got to drive it before I foined the army, even though it was nearly road worthy from a frame off resto that i did the previous 4 years on it.  Now in 2009 she will get the royal treatment she deserves.  Keep an eye on this project.  PS If you are interested in being a sponsor or donate something for this project, email me .  Being that I am a fully Disabled US Army Veteran, I want to give it a patriotic look.  I'm on a fixed income and so that means that there is not a lot of money to go for the project.  Anything you could do to help would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you, Andrew Campbell.
