Troy’s 1970 Oldsmobile 442 W/30

“My dreams come true each weekend breaking the hearts of unsuspecting Mustang, Camaro, and Vet owners (and an occasional Viper too). These dreams have become a reality thanks to Joe Mondello and his staff’s dedication and commitment to Oldsmobile owners around the world. Thank you all.”
– Troy
