    Presidents Trumpet December 2016

    In 1968 Oldsmobile, or shall I say Youngmobile like their brochures, found a clever way of skirt- ing GM’s 400 cu. in. limit in the intermediate car lines (A-body) by collaborating with George Hurst to custom build a limited quantity of Hurst-Oldsmobiles. These cars featured a 390 HP, 455 cubic inch Rocket engine backed by a special Turbo Hydramatic, installed by Demmer En- gineering in Lansing. In case you happen to own one of these cars, the Hurst dual gate shifter is still covered by an unlimited lifetime warranty!

    Hurst-Campbell Company, led by George Hurst, was financed by Lawrence Greenwald who is credited as one of the inventors of stretch nylon hosiery! Hurst also developed the ‘Jaws of Life’; however, the company gave away the patent without compensation. The association with Oldsmobile lasted through 1984. Today the company is owned by B&M racing products and is still creating special interest vehicles and manufactures some of the finest manual transmission shifters available.

    Here are some other interesting trivia facts about 1968. You probably used one to access this article, your computer mouse which was first demonstrated in 1968 along with ‘window’ type displays. Your computer may also use a processor manufactured by Intel, also founded on 1968. If you were an engineer, you might want a new calculator…right? Well HP started offering the HP 9100 desktop calculator for a retail price of $5000 (equivalent of $34,750 in today’s dollars)! This is $500 more than the base price of the most expensive Ninety-Eight Luxury Sedan.

    20 families attended the Bastrop Area Cruisers Veteran’s Day Car Show. We had beautiful weath- er and a fun time eating and shopping in the downtown area. NTOC won the Club Participation Award with 18 entries. Special thanks to Bill & Mary Szelag for co-organizing the car show and auction; Harry & Cheryl Green for opening up their home to us on Saturday night; and Richard & Debbie Hirsch and John & Karen Koenreich for helping with food and hosting duties.

    “Youngmobile thinking: it’s kept the oldest name in the business the youngest name in the business!”
