For years I have been in love with the torpedo body style of the late 40's. Being a baby boomer myself (born 09/48), I became fixated on finding a 48 that I could turn into a cruiser. Buick was my first model of choice, however everyone else in Oregon was also of that opinion so I decided to hit the Internet. I expanded my search to include all of the General Motor's cars of 1948 and came upon Dan's site showing a 1948 Oldsmobile. I hit the little (more info) button and a few hours later I got a reply from Dan with several choices. The 1948 Oldsmobile (later affectionately named Anabelle) was the one Kathy and I chose to fall in love with. At first I didn't think that we could get it because it was a bit out of our price range and lets face it the darn thing was in Texas. I asked Dan if he could negotiate with the owner and fit my price including shipping. I actually gave up and told Dan to keep me in mind if something else came up. Then a few days later I got this message.
