Newbie from France

Post by Superdupont on Wed Nov 19, 2008 5:10 am

Hey all, my name is Yann, i'm 32 and i live in France, near Paris.

I got the link by THE MALIGOON, a long time ago.

I'm a classic car nut, and i own a 75 olds cutlass salon, that i bought in 2005, in Switzerland. Here is a quick description of the car:

http://www.cardomain.com/ride/2672837

Hope you like it. Wink

It's in a good shape, but i have some job to be done during this winter: exhaust, front wheel drive, suspension..

This is my first US classic, i really like this ride, i thought about selling it once or twice, but it seems i can't do that, i'm so in love with her beautiful blue a** Razz Guess my other projects will have to wait until i have enough money to buy another car without selling the olds..

I'm also a Nascar fan, I regret the old times, when there were Torinos, Cutlasses or Chargers struggling on the track Sad I wasn't born then, but i wish i was! I came to USA in june, to see the Sprint Cup race in Sonoma.

The Baron, from Belgium, is a friend of mine. Hello Laurent Very Happy

Bye
Yann

Welcome to the site, Yann. The 70s Olds Cutlass's were a big favoerite of mine, maybe even more than the Chevy. The Olds out sold the Chevy in the 70s by a wide margin. I love the color of your car. You have a car to be proud of. Take good care of it, there will never be a better car made. JB

Thank you all Very Happy

JB2wheeler, you're right, they sold a lot of these cars in the 70s, but here in Europe, there are not much of them.

As finding parts for some 73-77 cars is quite hard, i let you imagine how it is here in Europe, especially for the olds. I always order my parts in the US, i hope i will never need body parts such as a front fender or a hood! Finding used body parts here is "Mission: impossible" Rolling Eyes and for mechanical parts it's not much easier.

Man, your right about finding parts, Its usually easier and cheaper to find a whole car and use as parts...
