About “conestoga (connie)”

i was almost done rebuilding this car when a drunk high school kid in a stolen pickup totaled it in a mall parking lot. the body was straight, the rust was gone, and it was in primer. get good insurance so the other guys insurance co. can't say your car is only worth $300!

i'll put some pictures on here when i find the picture disk they're on.

About “Olds”

I dont have a clue what I own. I just know that it is Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon 1979 its written on a pinkslip ( in estonia greenslip :)) engine has been canged, original was a diesel engine.
My father bought this car 15 years ago, from finland. (its located in estonia right now ,so... very far away from its original home) He drove it for a few years and when the transmission broke he abandoned it.
So...
I wrote because i want to restore the car, but I dont know nothing about it . Seems like it has never existed, there´s no information in internet, only few owners has wrote about this.

I think this is an ugly car,so ugly that its beautiful. I have really good memories related to this car.
Olds was the first foreign car in our family, before that, my father drove a russian moskvit? (IZ-21251 "The Bucket" Kombi)
...after the soviet union collapsed and estonia become republic(1991), people had a chance to buy foreign cars.
I cant describe the feeling that I had when the car accelerated, it was soooo.... different from russian cars that...Then it looked so cool, but now it´s just a chunk of metal on the field behind barn .
All I need is little info ...
Don´t judge ...
