Wasn't America always the land of happiness and prosperity? Where is the 'Sky the limit'? This dream world is not for everyone. But perhaps for Frans, because he found this extraordinarily special Oldsmobile in a reasonably good condition, which it now drives around after 7 years of restoration work (!).

However, he was purchased in the Netherlands and exchanged with his super fast Corvette, where the story goes that he was in the collection of the formerly known Autotron.
Yes, the body is original. However, the color was originally gray and a different engine has also been fitted. Its power source is now a 8 ci Chevrolet V350 small block. Frans is more builder than driver and so the American still got a personal touch.
Every enthusiast dreams of finding a special and striking car and for a passionate enthusiast such as Frans it is simply an object of pleasure. In other words, you could also say that it is a large piece of metal (?) with which you can experience a lot of driving pleasure. In any case, his happiness thermometer is very high.
Frans: “The sound is fantastic, you slide on the road. I thoroughly enjoy both. I notice the amazement on the way with this beautiful automobile. It's glamor on the road. An American would say: 'The body style is super cool'” Take a look at the dashboard. The design is phenomenal. And the body is spotless, not only the top, but also the bottom of this 'survivor' is 100 percent in order.”
By owning this beautifully lined classic, more and more encounters with special people are created and that gives Frans pure positive energy.
