Mike M 1965 Oldsmobile 442

One year joy ride

While preparing for our 1972 wedding in a few weeks, I had the opportunity to buy a 1965 Oldsmobile 442 from my boss. It was in excellent condition, white, wire wheel covers, automatic, air conditioning. I sold the 66 Buick GS I had and bought this beautiful car. We drove it everywhere, including cruising down Atlantic Ave. in Virginia Beach on Sunday afternoons. On our first anniversary we splurged and bought a brand new Oldsmobile and traded it in. Almost right away I began to miss the 442. Now 42 years later it is still the one car I wish I had kept. I lost track of it right away and have not been able to find it. One day I hope to find one and refurbish it to original.
