This automobile HAS NOT been restored,
just well taken care of.
We have always taken a lot of pride in this car.

After much discussion we decided it was time to allow our beloved Ozie to be adopted by someone who would care for her as we had for her first 18 years. After many candidates applied to adopt her we selected Craig from Erie PA.
Craig is an avid fan of the classic Oldsmobile and a former owner of a black 87 himself. He is almost as bazaar as we are when it comes to giving an automobile human qualities and referring to Ozie as a member of the family.
Craig sent a carrier to bring his adopted child from Mississippi and bring her to her new home in Erie, Pennsylvania as pictured below:

'The Rest of the Story'
Craig came back to Mississippi to purchase "WICKED" our 1998 Pontiac GTP. Now "OZIE" and "WICKED" are together again.
