R.E. Olds Chapter History

The roots of the R.E. Olds Chapter are deep. From 1972 to 1983, an informal group of Oldsmobile Club of America (OCA) members had been operating as an informal chapter, organizing and hosting several OCA National car meets in Lansing and East Lansing, Michigan. In 1984, the R. E. Olds Chapter was officially chartered as a chapter of the parent OCA organization.
As stated in our By-Laws, this chapter is dedicated to: ". . . further the interest in all types of Oldsmobiles within this geographic region and to aid in the promoting of events of interest in and around the home community of Oldsmobile."

The R. E. Olds Chapter is best known for hosting the largest one-day Oldsmobile car meet in the World known as the "Oldsmobile Homecoming."

Our original Charter officers in 1984 include: President - Jim Russell, Vice President - Max Hineman, Secretary - Dennis Casteele, Treasurer - Tom Hummer, OCA Chapter Rep. - Jim Harsant.
Our original Charter members in 1984 include: Helen Earley, Bob Zimmerman, Ron Brabant, Fred Pirochta, John Pirochta, Rick Miller, Ron Koonter, Duane Allen, Doug Badgley, Penny Kalchik (Casteele) and David Jones.
