No more 442 - Brian @ 9:00 pm CST
It's been a while since I updated this page. As of August 2000, I no longer own the 442. I traded it in for an 87 Grand National. Yes, I've gone to the Dark Side :) I still hold a place in my heart for Oldsmobile and I plan to update this site as needed. I have a bunch of pictures of the 442 before I took it in, but I still dont have a scanner to scan them into the computer. If you are interested in reading/looking at my GN, head over to this page.

Message Board - Brian @ 12:15 am CST
Be sure and check out for some good ol' Oldsmobile discussion. You can talk about anything Oldsmobile as well as buy/sell parts and cars. The Message Board link to the left also takes you there. We are up to 114 members and there is usually several new posts a day so stop by and join the fun!

On another note, I have a roll of film of the 442, but since my scanner died a few months ago, it'll be a little bit before they get posted. Oh well.

Another Update - Brian @ 10:19 pm PST
Been a LONG time since I worked on this. As you can see, another layout! Still not done however... But I won't leave it unfinished long.

 12-14-99 Been a while since an update. Seems a few people are still ending up at the old address for the message board. One reason may be I have links to the old address on top of all my pages but this front one. I haven't gotten around to updating the url on the other 25 or so pages. I've done some stuff to my car which I will just add here: New package shelf (w/o the poorly cut speaker holes from prev. owner), junkyard new console and console lid (lid is in perfect condition!), new chrome seat side covers, junkyard new chrome around windshield, hood insulator, new from GM amber parking lights, and junkyard new center chrome strip for the hood. Never got around to posting those OCA Nat. pictures did I?

9-29-99 The Tips page has been updated with some brake light info and how to brighten your dash lights for night driving. New stuff is at the bottom of the page. On an unrealted note, some text got kinda messed up (too big or too small) when I switched from MS Frontpage98 to Macromedia Dreamweaver 2 so just ignore it :-)

9-3-99 I have made a new Olds Message Board. I hope you guys like it. It has new features, faster speed, and no pop-ups.  Be sure and tell your Olds friends about it.     Also, I'll get around to updating this site real soon.

8-5-99 Looks like I took longer than a week :) I scannend the dash plaques I've gotten. I'll get the pictures from the OCA Nationals and other stuff soon. Take a look at the plaques here.

7-15-99 I'm still here, just been busy. Things to come: Pics from the Oldsmobile National Meet that was in Dallas at the end of June, pics of that award my car won from way back in May, pics of dash plaques from the shows I've entered, and probably more stuff. I may get a new message board, one that has more features and doesnt require you to register (though registered users have more options when posting). Look for these updates to slowly happen over the next week or so.

6-13-99 Big update. I redesigned the site. No more frames :) There is also an update in the Tips section as well as on My Car. If there are any problems with the new site, please let me know.

5-15-99 Two new sections added to the Restoration tips page.

5-12-99 I took my car to the Wichita Area Chevelle Owners car show at Mid-America Dragway last Saturday. I entered it in the Buick/Olds class and won!!! I got a nice big plaque, which I will take a picture of soon. Hooray for me!

4-27-99 Added a new link to the Links page and added some more info to the 442 page.

4-14-99 Added the picture that I mentioned below. They can be found at the bottom of this page.

4-5-99 Fixed some typos. I have some pics of my car doing a burnout and pics of it with my dad's 87 Buick Turbo-T. Look for them this weekend. On an unrelated topic, go see The Matrix. One of the best movies I've seen. Killer special effects AND a great story/plot. I'm going to see it a second time :)

3-30-99 Anyone remember me saying I would redo the performance section a few months ago?? Well, finally started on it. Its about 65% done so I tossed up what I've finished so far. Enjoy. UPDATE: 3-31-99 Added more stuff to Performance Section

3-19-99 I tossed up some new pictures of my car w/ the 442 wheels. You can find them at the bottom of this page.

3-17-99 Added a new section with restoration tips. Here you will find info on fixing some common problems found on G-Body Oldsmobiles.

3-9-99 New Wheels!! I finally have a set of factory 442 rims on the car. The chrome is in good condition with very minor rust in the crease in some spots. No 442 center caps but I'm making my own on my computer to glue on in place of the faded rocket. When the weather clears up I'll take more pictures. Also don't forget about the Message Board. It took me several hours to get it working so I hope to see more posts :)

Olds fans have visited since November 10, 1997.
