Charley Buehner's Rockets

'81 Cutlass, Purchased in 1989 for $2025. (It was supposed to be $2000, but it was from a Ford dealer, and they tacked on $25 'cuz it wasn't a Ford! Worth it, tho...) Came with a 260, Air, Tilt, Power Steering, AM/FM/Cass (Sherwood), bench seat, 2.29 open diff. large full sweep speedo, green interior, and spoke hubcaps. I've since added a '69 350 Rocket(Which earned it the plates "Rockit 1" and the nickname), '77 403 (from a Firebird), '70 Rocket 455, (not all at the same time!!!) and the current '67 425 Super Rocket.

I've been asked how much money is in this car, but I really have no idea. A lot, I tell them. The same answer to the question "how many cars do you own?" Alot, but still, not enough!


    Here are my other Olds's: '83 Cutlass Supreme Brougham; Black, T-Tops, 60/40 Bench, loaded, 3.8 V6 '77 Toronado; Blue & Rust, 403, loaded rough, Front Wheel Drive

'67 Ninety Eight Convertible, newest project. Many options. Obviously rough! The engine pic is the '67 425 from the convertible, that went into the Rockit. It's all stock except for the intake, fuel pump, and carb. The headers don't fit in the car, but they made great picture props! The Holley carb has been dumped for a Q-jet. The hood closes with a different air cleaner.
