Buster Christenson's '66 Jetstar 88
After getting quite sick enduring the summer
heat of Tucson on a motorcycle, I decided I needed a car.
I needed a car with Air Conditioning.
I had owned older cars in that past, and no new
cars catch my fancy. So, I started reading the classified
ads, with hopes of finding a classic.
I came across this '66 Jetstar 88 for $1000. I'd never
seen a Jetstar before. After seeing Bryce's parts Jetstar
I decided I liked the body style, and called the owner.
$800 later I was the proud owner of a 1966 Olds Jetstar 88
with an almost perfect body and 110,000 miles on it.
With a few dings fixed, and a fresh coat of paint, I now own a
classic car that turn heads all over Tucson. I'm constantly
asked what kind of car it is, and they reply "a Jetwhat?". It
sure is nice owning something unique. I still haven't seen
another Jetstar in Tucson.
Next up is converting the A/C to R-134, a valve job, a new
drag(center) link and whatever else pops up. It's
a daily driver that gives me some relief from the scorching
heat of the desert while being fun car to drive.
