 4 SALE this 1969 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme (442 Clone)  Recently painted, but has a couple of blemishes. It is a 3 speed auto with a 455 ci engine, still has the original drum brakes, transmission has just had all the seals replaced, new carburetor, new starter, new alternator, new fan,new plugs, new rocker covers,new airfilter, new wiper motor and wipers, new radiator.  Starts instantly, drives nice, stops, you will have to wind up the windows,(little handles on the door,for the younger readers), lock the doors individually,only has two so no biggie, has Florida aircon (open the window) but it looks great (recent visitor said the photo's make the car look prettier than it is, but I thought it does look fine), and sounds awesome. It still needs some TLC, all the dash airvents are gone? don't know why but need to be replaced, the glove box lid needs a new lock and the glove box needs replacing,  would be better with disc brakes, speedo not working, but HUD speedo (displays speed on screen) that plugs into cigarette lighter is included, no spare no jack, no sun visors, but body is solid, floors are solid, trunk solid.   Will trade this Olds for a European style Ford Capri (Only) the European Capri is NOT a little 2 seater sports car, like the Mercury Capri. This is a readvertisement, it didn't sell the last time, but I did get a ton of emails from people wanting to know the reserve price or a sell it now price, neither will be released, the auction will run to the end. Sorry have no photo's of underneath and I'm to old and fat to get down to take any, but when I was having the transmission repaired, I took the opportunity of walking underneath while it was on the lift, and the was nothing to be concerned about, at least not that I could see. Thanks for reading this, happy bidding.

Ferrari FF pitted against Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser in crazy Generation Gap comparison

Thu, 13 Nov 2014 19:58:00 EST

The folks behind Generation Gap have lost their minds with this latest video. The goal here is to determine the ultimate family cruiser, but the choices are what you would least expect, with a heavily modded 1970 Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser going up against a 2012 Ferrari FF.
You might anticipate an over-40-year-old Oldsmobile to pale in comparison to any modern Ferrari, but this wagon has a ton of secrets under its skin thanks to Lingenfelter. First, it packs a supercharged LS3 V8 with a claimed 650 horsepower and a six-speed manual gearbox. That big upgrade in power is further helped with air suspension and massive Wilwood disc brakes. The result is nothing short of deafening, with blaring yelps whenever the driver even nudges the accelerator.
The alternative sounds just as good, albeit in very different way. The Ferrari's 6.3-liter V12 pumps out 651 hp and 504 pound-feet with a part-time all-wheel drive system. While the FF lacks a lot of the hauling ability of the Olds, it makes up for the deficit in handling, luxury, and in many eyes, simply by having the famous prancing horse on the grille.

Jay Leno bangs up his own Toronado in GT6

Wed, 11 Dec 2013 12:33:00 EST

Ever since Gran Turismo 4, Jay Leno has had at least one of his cars included in the popular racing simulator (starting with the Tank Car), and more of his machines appears in Gran Turismo 6. They include this nose-heavy, front-wheel-drive V8-powered muscle car. Yes, that aptly describes a 1966 Oldsmobile Toronado - except Leno's is rear-wheel drive. And it has a Cadillac CTS-V race engine modified to pump out 1,070 horsepower.
For the latest Jay Leno's Garage episode, he takes his real Toronado out for a cruise and then drives the virtual one like he stole it, accruing some body damage along the way. Leno also drives the virtual supercar Mercedes-Benz designed for GT6, the AMG Vision Gran Turismo Concept that debuted at the LA Auto Show, along with the real one, which is a 1:1-scale model. The model is radio-controlled and equipped with a small electric motor, sufficient to move it on and off of auto show floors.
Head below to watch the episode, which includes a few words from GT6 creator Kazunori Yamauchi.

GM recalling 8.4M cars, 8.2M related to ignition problems

Mon, 30 Jun 2014 15:30:00 EST

General Motors today announced a truly massive recall covering some 8.4 million vehicles in North America. Most significantly, 8.2 million examples of the affected vehicles are being called back due to "unintended ignition key rotation," though GM spokesperson Alan Adler tells Autoblog that this issue is not like the infamous Chevy Cobalt ignition switch fiasco.
For the sake of perspective, translated to US population, this total recall figure would equal a car for each resident of New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Montana, Delaware, South Dakota, Alaska, North Dakota, the District of Columbia, Vermont and Wyoming. Combined. Here's how it all breaks down:
7,610,862 vehicles in North America being recalled for unintended ignition key rotation. 6,805,679 are in the United States.
