Another thing to do to wile-away the non-car season is to
view auctions, especially if you’re looking for a new
ride. Here is one example that will be coming up, with no reserve at an auction in Las Vegas.
Since a lot of you go there every winter and this year you
can watch an NHL
game (probably for the price of movie theater tickets) it
may be just the distraction you’re looking for. This
1970 442 convertible will be for sale.
It’s all about the numbers: This
1970 Oldsmobile 442 convertible is on its way to the 2017 Las
Vegas Auction. For a look at all the cars on the
Las Vegas Preview Docket, later in the month, click HERE.
Here’s wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving,
a reflective Remembrance Day, Merry Christmas and Happy New
is here and soon our cars will be put away for the winter
until the long anticipated spring. While I’m not going
to car shows, I like to stay in touch with Oldsmobile through
a few site’s on Facebook. I usually check in with the
following sites. You should too.
Our Site: The Oldsmobile Northern Lights Chapter
And a few others:
Another good past time would be a
story on your car. How you bought it, how long you’ve
owned it what do you like about it, etc. I will add events of the day to the article to bring back those memories.
When you finish writing it, you be that much closer to spring
and getting it running.
We have changed banks. Since 1991 we have dealt with the
TD bank, however lately they were not cashing cheques that
members were sending in. They said that
members’ cheques had to be made
out to THE OLDSMOBILE CLUB OF AMERICA, NORTHERN LIGHTS CHAPTER.
I asked why after 26 years will they not
deposit a cheque that that says Northern Lights Chapter when
they were taking them
before? The manager said that was not
the case, so I asked her to check. They didn’t so I
spoke with Gord Jackson our Treasurer and we decided to move
the account to The Bank of Montreal also in Sherwood Park. Cheques written
to the club should say Oldsmobile Northern Lights Chapter
or Northern Lights
Chapter. The bank is not charging a banking fee with a balance
of $5000 or more and we can write 100 cheques a year. We
write under 5 in that
period as we also have a PayPal account that handles day
to day requirements.
The club is looking for a new treasurer. Gord Jackson has
decided to step down. He spends the winter out of the country
in most cases, and feels that if we
need a cheque on short notice, he may not be able to deliver
until spring. So, the job is open for someone
that would like to take over the duties.
As with all official club positions, membership to the club
is covered by the club. If you’d like to
consider the position, please email me
Your membership in the club must be at least one year.
