History:  Steve Double bought this car in Summer 2011 from Vic Zimmerman of Ottawa, IL. Vic found the car on Traderonline.com in January 2005 (see ad below). Prior owner from Texas; was originally a California/Arizona car. Built in Fremont, CA.

In September 2011, Steve said the following:  "I have actually spoken to the 2nd, 3rd, 5th and 6th Owners of my V Code.  I haven’t yet spoken with the 1st Owner, but he’s the older brother of the 2nd Owner.  Apparently their Dad owned a Oldsmobile dealership in Colusa, California. The car was special ordered by the 1st brother who had it for about 10 years and then gave it to his younger brother who had it the next ten. Apparently the 1st brother decided not to check the W30 box on the order form only because he was concerned the hood wouldn’t do well if he drove it in the rain." 

October 2012 info: "(These pictures are) after it’s recent paint job.  It was stripped to bare metal and the good news is that it has all it’s original sheet metal, except the front left fender. Not much body work was needed.  I spoke with the original owner about the front fender bender. It seems that being in inland California for most of it’s life helped save the car. This Viking blue V Code has it’s original drivetrain and is all numbers matching.  Most the interior is original and it has about 110,000 actual miles.  I have the build sheet, protect-to-plate, original warranty and manuals."
