WELCOME TO THE CURVED DASH OLDSMOBILE CLUB!

We have over 200 members sharing information and helping each other restore and maintain their cars and to learn about the Curved Dash Oldsmobile via a newsletter, email distribution list, website and shared parts production.  Much of this website is open to visitors so please look around.

CLUB MEMBERS PLEASE NOTE
We have an email distribution list which allows any member to broadcast a message to all of the other members.  To use it, you simply email your message to curved-dash-oldsmobile-list@gmail.com.  You will need to use the email account you used when you joined the club.  Please remember to limit your messages to CDO topics.

We encourage all members to stay on the list as this is the only way to have technical questions answered in a timely fashion.
