Default Back in the game...

For those that don't know, I recently bought the 1972 C/B Cotington combination advertised in these forums. While it's a 46 year old car that isn't perfect, it is VERY nice. Kudos to PCS member Rich Groeber for how this car has been treated and maintained while in his possession!

This car is complete except for the roof plug and one window crank knob; if anyone here has (or knows of) any extras, please let me know.

Here are a few photos:

Congratulations on your new vehicle. It is a very attractive car, and I know how dependable and good handling that era of Oldsmobile's are. If you need any help with the mechanicals, we are here for you.

I will give you a window crank for it if you put me at the head of the list for when you grow tired of it! PM me your mailing address.

Last seen in public at the 1995 International meet in Fort Wayne. Looks like it has held up well over the last 23 years! Both it and it's sister car were at that meet.

Congratulations Steve, real nice car and I also really like the way those Oldsmobiles of that era run and drive. Enjoy your new ride!

Congratulations, my friend! That's one beautiful looking car. It couldn't have ended up in better hands. Glad to see that you're finally "back in the game."
