The Hurst/Olds Club of America was formed September 4, 1983 by a group of 16 enthusiastic people dedicated to the pleasure and preservation of the Hurst/Olds automobile. An organizational meeting was held on that date in Lansing, Michigan at the R. E. Olds Museum.

The membership has grown over the years and currently numbers over 600, with members in nearly every state, many Canadian provinces, and several other countries.

The H/OCA has a network of volunteers to help with member questions. Each year of H/O has a dedicated advisor to answer questions and offer support. The Club maintains a Research Library. This information is used to help members and the media with questions about our special cars.

The Thunder and Lightning is published six times annually and has won many awards for excellence over the years for providing a quality magazine to Club members.

Our official website, is a wealth of information. It contains photos of prototype cars, photos of production cars and much historical information about the Hurst/Olds. It also features a classified section and information about the National Meet and Annual Hurst/Olds Day.

The R. E. Olds Museum in Lansing, MI is the only museum in the world dedicated to the Oldsmobile marque. It contains a display, which was designed and built by the H/OCA, about the history of the Hurst/Olds. Also on display is the Hurst “Hairy” Olds, a 1966 Oldsmobile 442 powered by two blown Toronado engines. This car is a recreation of the exhibition car from the 60s and was donated to the H/OCA.

The Club hosts an annual National Meet each year at various locations around the country. As a group we have had the privilege of driving parade laps around Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Charlotte Motor Speedway, Michigan International Speedway, Poconos Raceway and Bristol Speedway. We have also run at many different dragstrips across the country and have visited many scenic areas like the Wisconsin Dells, Missouri Ozarks, Hershey, PA. and Disneyworld. The Club meet is not a judged event, but rather a fun time that the whole family can enjoy.
