Dave Engel’s 1970 W/30 Post Coupe
“As you know, it helps to be a quart low to own an “Olds”, and we fit that description at my house! My wife Patty and I have raced this car for 5 years and have had alot of fun doing so. Thanks to Lynn and all the staff at Mondello’s who have helped me all the way.”
