    Attended the 2016 OCA (Olds Club of America) nationals in Kingsport, TN. It was hot as FUCK but still fun. Lots of shade and water made it tolerable.

    Brought my latest acquisition....1965 Starfire #3 but this one is special. The Starfire was the flagship Olds and was typically very well optioned. This car is the opposite. It has the mandatory power steering and brakes, and that IT. No side view mirrors, no reverse lights, nothing. The best part is this is 1 of 122 ordered with a 4 speed! With only 7700 miles on the odometer, I opted to trailer it the 300 miles.

    Took this from the shade. A bunch of people knew what the car was...it drew a real steady crowd all weekend

    There was a surprise hail storm last night during the awards banquet. The hotel made this room available first come first serve

    I opted for the balcony

    Came away with a second place. I should have put the car in a modified class but didnt know there was one. They deducted a ton of points but still won :)
