Howard Hosenbold's '84 Hurst Olds
Greetings from sunny Central Florida. I purchased my pride and joy in
January 1994. I'm the second owner. The first owner traded the car in at
the dealership I work at. Needless to say it never got to be displayed for
sale. After a quick look under the hood, a once-around on a lift and a
quick road test I told the Used Car Mgr. to lock it up and park it in the
back and we'll take care of the paper work in the morning. It was hard to
believe this car was 10 years old, that it only had 50,000 miles (currently
61,000) and it came from a snow belt state (New Jersey). The first owner
knew what he was doing when it came to car preservation. It was apparent
that this car had not seen any bad weather, if at all, and was used
sparingly as well.
Now what did I have? An absolutely gorgeous, pampered, low mileage 1984
Hurst Olds with every available factory option right down to the t-top bags
and owners manual. No scratches, no nicks, no dents, perfect interior
(vinyl seats), sounds good, runs great, I'm in love!
The only non-original items on the car are an Accel Super Coil, a Sony
30Wx4 AM/FM-CD w/JVC 6x10 rear speakers (my addition) and BF Goodrich
Radial T/A's w/RWL. I've recently (fall '97) replaced all the t-top seals
and door weatherstrips.
I've shown the car twice at the first annual and second annual Olds Club of
Florida Car Show and Swap Meet and got a second in class (1996) and first
in class (1997) of "Hurst Olds All Years".
The car is a joy to drive and is a sure head-turner. I get lots of "thumbs
up" while cruising this beauty. I garage it of course and usually get it
out at least once every weekend.
