My favorite car: '70 Oldsmobile 442, Jim Marshall, 74, Seminole

'70 Oldsmobile 442

I purchased this car in 2003 from eBay after it had been restored about 85 percent. I spent three months tweaking it, adding the hood and side stripes, replacing the front and rear bumpers, adding some new grille trim and interior finishing work. The original 455 V-8 had been rebuilt and modified for even more power than the factory original. It had automatic Hurst shifter, bucket seats, factory air, power steering and brakes. It also had the rear wing on the trunk that really gave these cars a great-looking muscle-car appearance. Back in 1970, I was busy raising a family and having a muscle car was not in the picture, but 33 years later I had the muscle car I always wanted.
