dream about my first car, a 1950 Olds Futuramic 88 coupe.
I bought it in 1959 while in my senior year in high school.
It cost me $350 from the original owner and was in very good
shape with low mileage, however the paint was faded from the
Oregon coast weather so I and a friend spent many hours sanding
and doing prep work for a new paint job. I had it repainted
'56 Buick banner blue which was close to its original color.
The photo I am sending was taken after the paint job and adding
a set of Starfire hubcaps that were in style at the time.
I still wonder why I was so stupid to sell it after only a
year or so, and only hope it still exists. The last time I
saw it was 1961. I was working in a gas station and a woman
came in to the station for fuel. I didn't even own a car at
the time and nearly cried when it drove away. If there is
a heaven, I only hope I am reunited with my '50 Olds!
If anyone out
there in Oregon thinks they know where this car is drop John
a line. It was possibly last seen on Coos Bay, Oregon ______
