This is my 1983 15th Anniversary Hurst Olds. It is #495 out of 3001 built that year. It was produced at the Lansing, Michigan assembly plant on Dec 21st, 1982. The car was originally sold to John Brasco by Olympic Oldsmobile of Chicago,Illinois.
The car has just recently completed an extensive 2 1/2 year restoration done by Andy Skic of Skics refinishing in Des Plaines,Illinois. The car was restored to its 100% factory stock condition
The car was just recently shown at the Oldsmobile Quad state meet in Gallena,Illinois and was judged by OCA (Oldsmobile Club Of America ) guildlines and it won a Best of Class, scoring 992 points out of 1000 points!
Checkout the custom factory 160mph that I had made for the car. It is a GM factory converted 140kmh Canadian speedo that has had a silk screened on faced like the original one, not a decal! Granted these cars will never see 160mph, but they sure look a lot nicer than the lame 85 mph factory ones that the cars came with.
This is one of my other G Body Oldsmobiles. Its a rare FE3-X car,given the nickname of Darth Vader. It is the son of the Original Darth Vader car which is in the RE Olds museum. In front of the car is the Oldsmobile designer who headed up the FE3-X project Bill Porterfield. This picture was taken at the 2005 Hurst Olds Nationals, and Bill was kind enough to sign the dash of my FE3X at the event, and take a spin in the car. He said the car brought back alot of good memories for him. Bill was also the one who was in charge of the Oldsmobile Aerotech project that broke numerous speed records.
This is the original Darth Vader.
