PostSubject: The small world we live in   Sat Apr 29, 2017 10:27 pm

I've been a regular participant,vendor at the Pate Swap Meet in Ft Worth, TX now for decades.  This year my normal space partner from NM had previously scheduled plans and I was forced to find another individual to help cover the expenses of leasing the spaces for the weekend.  I've known Richard from Austin for 25 plus years, and credit him for "biting" me with the B body wagon bug.  He has personally owned 14 of these magnificent machines.  He arrived to my house Wednesday with a super clean white '92 Olds Custom Cruiser with an aluminum car trailer loaded with parts for sale in tow.  When we discussed the car, he mentioned that he had purchased the car from a local guy "Mike Massey".  I replied, " I know who you are taking about!"  I had purchased my Buick try shield centers from Mike.  So I had the privilege of spending the weekend with my fellow B Body wagon friend, as well as riding and driving a fellow long roof forum member's previously owned rides.  1992 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser 75,000 miles, white with blue leather interior, loaded! Richard had added a set of Impala SS wheels with my signature "rocket" centers.  What a great way to spend a weekend!

My old car! I miss it! Happily I see it around town now and then. Richard is an Olds nut, and I know it went to a good home.

For anyone interested, Dad and I flew to North Carolina to buy that car and had a great road-trip home in it. I posted all about it on the forum here: http://gmlongroof.4umer.com/t7102-1598-miles-of-custom-cruising-across-the-usa?highlight=Custom+Cruiser

I like my Roadmaster wagon better, so all things work out in the end, but that '92 OCC is a beautiful car!
