oldsmobile starfire : This car is the rare Starfire Model. Garaged for the last 10 years.Presently located in Caldwell, Idaho, but could deliver to SacramentoCalifornia or location between Caldwell and Sacramento. It runs good,has minor body damage on right rear quarter panel. No significantrust. Needs paint. Good glass and chrome. This is a solid #4 carand is complete and could be easily restored. The Oldsmobile Starfirehad the high performance 394 CID "Rocket-8" and this particular carhas Air Conditioning. The standard package came with floor mountedautomatic transmission and tachometer as well as leather bucketsin front and leather in rear. The leather in the car is useableand probably repairable but a full restoration would probably necessitate newleather. It has all the options, power steering,power brakes, power windows, etc. Unfortunately, I need the garage space asI also own a 1961 Starfire Convertible, 1983 Hurst Olds, 1991Olds Toronado Trofeo, plus the 2 cars we drive on a regular basisand a 1962 Ford F-100 Pickup which I am also considering selling.Email me if you have any questions. -- Gary N.

oldsmobile starfire : Since winter is almost here (in Sweden at least) I need a few new buildingprojects to keep me company now that it's to cold to go outdoors. Youreallyget a lot of modelcar building done when the polarbears take over thestreets of the city (Stockholm)!Therefore I was wondering if some one knows if there are any kits (plasticor resin) made of the 1960 Buick and the 1961 Oldsmobile Starfire?Somehow I've got the feeling that the answer will come from our own carguruMr Art Anderson. Can anybody beat him to it?AMT made both a 1960 Buick Invicta 2dr hardtop and a convertible in 1960 only (these are currently being produced by The Modelhaus)No styrene kit was ever made of the 1961 Oldsmobile Starfire, although there have been a couple of resin kits done over the years. I am not sure, but I don't think there are any 61 Starfires in resin production currently.AAMRESIN skrev i inläggThanks for the information Art. Somehow I knew you would be the first tocome up with the answer to my question.How does he manage to keep all this information about model cars? Is it allin his head?
oldsmobile starfire : Aliens in a flying saucer followed me home© Copyright 1997By JEFF LANGLEYThe country went crazy for stories about aliens and UFOs even before the50th anniversary of the "Roswell Incident," the reported crash of analien spacecraft in the first week of July 1947.The U.S. military supposedly recovered the space vehicle and severaltiny aliens aboard and worked ever since with the highest levels ofgovernment to cover up the incident.Houston Chronicle reporter Stephen Johnson wrote a story about theRoswell, N.M., crash for the anniversary coverage. Johnson reported thatsheep rancher William Brazel found wreckage of the spacecraft on July 3,1947. Believers now argue over the site of the wreckage, but they agreeit was on a New Mexico range, about 30 to 60 miles north to northwest ofRoswell.Johnson's story said Brazel took pieces of the wreckage to the sheriffand the U.S. Army air base at Roswell.On July 8, 1947, the story said, Col. William Blanchard, commander ofthe nuclear bomber group based at Roswell, issued a press release sayingthe base had custody of a "flying disc" from outer space. A statementthe next day from higher up the command said the original press releaseabout a flying disc was wrong, that the object was a weather balloon.The Air Force continues to debunk the story of recovering the craft andperforming autopsies on alien passengers. On June 24, 1997, the AirForce issued a 251-page denial, "The Roswell Report: Case Closed." Therecovered "space aliens" actually were aluminum and plastic crashdummies used in parachute tests from high altitude, the report said.Critics said such test dummies weren't used until several years afterthe 1947 incident.Unusual lights over Phoenix and other parts of Arizona on March 13,1997, also stirred the alien craze. Gov. Fife Symington -- booted fromoffice after a criminal conviction later in the year -- said he wouldorder the Department of Public Safety to investigate the lights. Helater said he only was joking.Many believe in the existence of space aliens, but private investigatorand UFO buff Bill McDonald said at the anniversary celebration atRoswell that people invent most alien stories."Out of every 100 people who claim to have information on UFOs, six arelegitimate, 50 are after either sex or cash, and the rest have mentalillnesses," The Associated Press quoted McDonald.Count me among those who had a "close encounter" during a brief mentalillness.I was 16. I was driving home in my first car, a 1962 Oldsmobile Starfireconvertible. The new electric top was down to take advantage of the coolair about 2:30 on a beautiful, clear summer morning.A late night had turned to early morning after my teen-age friends and Idrank Southern Comfort whiskey straight from the bottle. I supposeSouthern Comfort was some of the first hard liquor to cross our lips
oldsmobile starfire : El asunto de Rosswell es como el asesinato de Kennedy, la bomba de la Amia o la muerte de Marilyn, Nunca se sabra con exactitud lo que sucedio.Si en cierta forma todos esos incidentes tienen una relacion.La excepcion es la Marilyn respecto de quien todos sabemos porque murio.Ella fue utilizada para desplazar al Chicho Sinatra y este les dio elvuelto a los hermanos Kennedy y a la Marilyn, all in my way...A veces me hacen acordar a esas trenzas familiares en argentina...Cosimo."El asunto de Rosswell es como el asesinato de Kennedy, la bomba de laAmia o "la muerte de Marilyn, Nunca se sabra con exactitud lo que sucedio.""un abrazo""Viktor ArevaloExactamente lo mismo sucede con los desaparecidos: por más que los organismosde derechos humanos insistan, anden por las calles pataleando, nunca jamássabrán el destino de los desaparecidos.Es como una incógnita, una película de terror, que sus familiares se llevarána las tumbas cuando se vayan de este mundo, sin saber realmente qué es lo queles ha sucedido a sus seres queridos.Alguien dijo que no había archivos de la represión, en tanto que otrosdijeron que sí, que los hay. Pues bien, parece ser que sí los hay, peroninguno de los que hablan tienen la posibilidad, ni la más remota, de llegara conocerlos.
oldsmobile starfire : I believe (please correct me if i'm wrong) that the 1975 Monza was thefirst U.S. car model introduced offering *square* headlights--all U.S.models previously had round headlights (which we're now returning to).Chevrolet also put square headlights in a couple other models thatyear, including the Impala. Was there any reason why there was a sudden shift to square headlights in the70's? Did square allow for better visibility or was it just for style (similarto how cars in the late 70's got progressively boxier).Actually, the 1975 model year was the first to bring *square*headlights; this design appearance appearing en mass, with the Monza(and its Oldsmobile Starfire and Buick Skyhawk sister-clones) as amongmany 1975 model year automobiles to feature these.It sure was. I was 12 at the time and thought the Chevy Monza was thecoolest car in the world; somewhere in a box is the 1/24 scale model Ibuilt of said car, painted a very tasteful purple-on-black. Mmm.The original spy photos of the Monza circa '73 showed the traditional5" round lights. It was certainly a shocker when it came out with thenew rectangular lights.
