This was my 1968 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme convertible I had while I was in the Navy. I bought it from Operations Department Commander Meadows. I sold it to a Lieutenant Commander in Operations Department when I left the Navy. I wish I would have kept it.

Yes, that is a pink submarine in the backround! It was used for a 1959 major motion picture, Operation Petticoat. It was also used for a television sitcom also named Operation Petticoat in 1977 to 1979.
