     A few words about me...

    I have been a Toronado fan since the first one came out of the assembly line, in the fall of 1965.

    They were so different in body style that I was hooked on the spot. It was their aero-dynamic body shape with their long hood and short back end, that first attracted me. I got seriously involved with these cars after I bought my first one in early seventies. I have tried to rescue as many of them as possible from the crusher, but unfortunately some were too far gone.

    If I could own only one of them, I would choose a '67, luckily, I have room for a few more.

    I have been a member of the Oldsmobile Club of America and the Toronado Chapter for over 35 years, as well as a charter member of the BC Olds Club.
