Roamin’ Oldies Cruiser Of The Month

In 1968, Ron Gaither bought a well-used, four-year-old Oldsmobile Cutlass 442 convertible. Fifty-five years later, it is the Roamin’ Oldies Car Club cruiser of the month. In 1979, the 442 was retired as a daily driver and tucked away in a garage; in 2000, Gaither and son, Geoff, embarked on a 10-year frame-off restoration. They did pretty much everything in the home garage; only the seats and interior panels were sent out for reupholstering.

The Roamin’ Oldies host a cruise-in from 1-4 p.m. the first Sunday of every month, with a rain date the following Sunday, at the MiraBay Village Shopping Center at 206 Harbor Village Lane off U.S. Highway 401 in Apollo Beach. For more information, call Frank at 856 373-8497.
