CHERISHING OUR VALLEY 2013
When Gerald Olson was in the eighth grade in the fall of 1954, General Motors presented a new Chevrolet in its showrooms. Jerry says " I loved the looks of the '55, right from the start." It was the first year of the Chevrolet V8s, and "the first year of the Chevrolet V8's. The engine turned out to be a classic in and of itself. The new Chevrolet V8's including the Corvette, still have the same Bore Centers, albeit none of the parts."
Glendale born, Jerry Olson attended Pierce College in Woodland Hills, and graduated from California State University Long Beach. One of his retirement dreams came through when he displayed to old friends recently at a lunch at Barone's in Valley Glen, his new/old 1955 dream car.
