Congrats Ryan on your first ride.
With the family too Awesome.
Hate to be a bugger as I don't know Olds like you do but isn't that steering wheel upside down? LOL
Enjoy many memories coming in your beautiful ride.
Reserve one night to come by my house and go to my local cruise with me one Thursday.
Cheers

I can only imagine your excitement Ryan. It has been a complete joy to watch you and your dad start this project and you and your family complete it. The video shows just what that us all about. Congratulations!

If Danny is correct on the steering wheel being upside down the likely error was in the installation of the CV cup on the topside of the intermediate steering shaft. It is possible to assemble that 180* out and that would cause your potential issue. That is the only place I can think of that will cause this.

Your help at every single turn has been the greatest influence to move forward over and over and over again.

I have been thinking about Dad so much lately. I am so happy he was able to be a big part of this big part of my life!!! Rest is peace Ralphy.

Danny is pulling your chain!! Olds steering wheels look upside down in 1969, and they are the same but flipped over for 1970. (1970 guys!!!)

I appreciate all the support so many people shared through this whole process!!! Especially you Rick!!

Big congrats to you Ryan also your family plus everyone else who's been part of this whole W-31 Post car adventure!
Are there plans yet to take the Stagers for a rip, maybe a drive out to Ayr and the original County Garage Dealership location?

So another life bucket list item checked off!!!

Take our daughter to prom in my Cutlass. CHECK!!

This was such an honour and there was an option to go in a Limo but she wanted to go with Daddy!!! She wouldn’t even come home in the Limo, I got to pick them up later to get them to the after party.

Note to self, check where the venue is before going... it was on a gravel road.... not kidding. Baptize the Cutlass CHECK!!

Honestly the venue could have been at the bottom of the ocean and I would have still taken Emily in the Olds.

Our kids have such great friends a whole bunch were here after the after party...

Life is good, my car is filthy, now time to start fixing the bugs!!
