In 2012, we were honored to be able to unveil a very special Oldsmobile...and in 2013, we will again play host to yet another remarkable Olds. It was November 17, 2012, and the excitement level was off the hook when Lovely Linda Vaughn stepped onto the rear platform and took a hold of the big golden Hurst shifter on The Collections’ 1969 Hurst/Olds convertible. Fresh from a complete restoration by Gary Riley and the Level One Restoration team from Arvada, Colorado, the cover came off for the crowd who snapped pictures and witnessed history in the making. Shortly after that unveiling, our good friend Fred Mandrick, (who was showing his 442 W-30 in our Class of 1972 Invitational), quite the Olds collector himself, hinted that he just may be able to help us in our quest to continue to raise the bar with another very special Olds. You see, Fred was finalizing a deal for a one-off 442 that had pretty much fallen off the map, as far as collectors go. This car, built by Hurst specifically for George Hurst, was a very special 442, with a long list of unique features. Purchased from a California Oldsmobile dealer around 1970, it was used as daily transportation for the owner for many years before being put away in his garage. This extensively modified front wheel drive 455 powered car was chronicled in both Super Stock and Popular Hot Rodding magazines back in the day, and then seemed to be least by most.

Fred spent years following leads and searching and was able to eventually add this one to his collection. And now, I am happy to announce this very significant 1968 442 is currently undergoing restoration in Arizona. And guessed it! This historical machine will be unveiled at The Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals show Saturday morning, November 23. We are honored to be able to host the Premier Unveiling of this car, along with some incredibly significant pieces of Muscle Car History to be announced later. We are again writing more Muscle Car history at the MCACN show! More details about this incredibly unusual 442 will follow, along with details on additional unveilings, so stay tuned!

Jason Stritesky  Oldsmobile Go Cart

Speaking of Oldsmobiles, we are also pleased to announce we will be hosting a very special gathering of real-deal documented Oldsmobile W-Machines this year. Our goal is to host one or two of the absolute best of each model year, so if you own one, or know of one that should be at our show, please contact me at . Our friend Gary Riley will be helping us out with this, and he has already lined up some incredible machines, including several that I can assure you, you have never seen.
Our featured car this week is a 1971 Olds 442 owned by Jason Stritesky. Last year Jason showed his immaculate 1967 442, and he is well into the restoration of this one now. Jason has incredibly high standards, (as seen with his ‘67!) and he tells us this one will be his best to date. And to make things even more interesting, he will also be bringing in his matching 442 Go-kart! Ever see one of those before? Well...plan on seeing it November 23-24, 2013 at The Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals show at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, (greater Chicago), Illinois.
