Los Viejos

This is my 1964 Oldsmobile Super88. I bought this car around 2018 for $5000 Canadian from a gentleman out near Camrose Alberta.

The 394 Skyrocket engine packed a good punch in its day and was topped with a four barrel carb. Unfortunately for me the motor had sat for quite a while before the previous owner got it running and it lacked the power, torque, and luster that it once had. I drove the car for the summer without any engine work despite the immense amount of piston blow by and crank case pressure.
