Default Ummm, Hi there!

I found this site kind of by accident looking for ways to fix the AC in my car. I have a 1995 Oldsmobile Regency Elite (sorry it'* not a Bonneville, Dad always drove Olds or Chevy). Hope it doesn't matter too much about the branding, it was the info sharing I really wanted. Anyway the site navigation is easy to use and has some other options that other sites I am a member of don't have.

I'm in Edmonton Alberta up in the GWN. Let'* see if anyone knows what that is. I'm an old guy who has always loved driving my cars and working on them. Do just about all the mechanical work on em myself and they seem to still be running. Don't know why I have so many leftover bolts though

As you can see from my signature pic, my toy car is a 1972 Cutlass * that Dad bought new from Edmonton Motors. My brother inherited it, trashed it and sold it to me for $1.00 Since then, I've restored it to better than new. Original 350 Rocket with 119,236 miles.

My Ninety Eight was sold in Barrie Ontario in December of 94. It spent 5 years there and was auctioned to Western Alberta. Resold in Wetaskiwin in 99. Traded in and auctioned in Edmonton 2003. When I got it, I didn't know the headaches I was in for. This 3000.00 car has cost me over 9000,00 in repairs to the rocker panels, quarter panels, Door rust, suspension and exhaust. In our household alphabet you'll find every letter except L. Thats because I'm wearing it for buying this car and sinking all that money into it. I guess my love for big cars is what drives me. I keep saying to myself, now nothing can go wrong...... Anyway here'* a couple of pics of my 95 98, or project agony.....
