1966 Olds 442 W30 MuscleCar Nationals Race & Show Fun
Great memories racing and showing my 1966 Olds 442 Tri-Carb W30 with friends at the MuscleCar Nationals in Sacramento. I restored it to showroom condition in the 1980's, including balancing and blueprinting the original Olds 400 engine and drivetrain to factory specs as documented in the 2-part article I wrote for Musclecar Review magazine. It's all 442 including the original Olds 400 "E" block, heads, carbs, intake/carbs, etc, and raced on DOT legal street tires through mufflers and full Exhaust per Musclecar Nationals factory stock rules. I raced my first 442 in stock eliminator during the 1960's, and had a ball with my friends showing and racing this one at various events around the country. I hope you enjoyed sharing this trip down musclecar memory lane with me.

My Fathers Oldsmobile
The 1970 Olds 442 my father ordered through my grandfather in 1969. I was brought home from the hospital in this car after I was born in 1972. Now my kids get to enjoy this awesome machine with my father.
