Better than NEW: 1970 Oldsmobile 442 Sports Coupe
This is not your Father's Oldsmobile and definitely not one of the cookie cutter redone 442's that are out there,
but a one of a kind 442 that at every car show, both National and local, draws swarms of people who look at it in
awe. In the short time that I have shown this car, it has received "Best of Show Engine" at the Blacktop Nationals
in Wichita KS, and "numerous" 1st place Muscle Car recognitions. From front to rear new paint, no "orange peel or waves", on a scale from
1-10, 1 being a disaster and 10 being absolutely perfect, this cars paint job is a 9. New chrome locking hood pins
and chrome latches. New chrome hood hinges and springs.

front windshield, new tinted side glass, and new tinted rear window (tint matches side glass), new window channels
and new rubber.

covered dash, new satellite radio (face matches stock radio). Air compressor gauge and switch are mounted in the

Did away with all wood grain on dash and doors and replaced with carbon fiber. New LED lights on doors and back
side panels. New Billet aluminum door jamb louvers with new u-shaped door jamb seals. New "American Made" window
crank handles. Complete new interior and new perforated headliner, absolutely no wrinkles in entire interior (all
interior is chalk white). New black carpet is of the 1955 Corvette style close knap. All inside panels on both door
and rear sides are done in plexiglass instead of "cardboard", this way will never warp. Kick panels have new
speakers mounted. All new stainless steel trim around doors and widows. New sound insulation and heat barrier
added under carpet and headliner.
New aluminum shroud with two heavy duty electric fans (heating not an issue: in 97 degree weather, driving at 65
mph, with a/c on, water temp stays at 180 degrees), new aluminum radiator (built with 10 fins per square inch and
three 1 1/2 inch rods). Engine completely rebuilt that is now a 455 cubic inch with 400 horse power instead of the
375 horse power. New serpentine belt system, new water pump, new polished stainless steel overflow tank for
radiator and new polished stainless steel storage tank for power steering, new chrome alternator, a complete new

new drive shaft and new universal joints plus a new electronic over drive from Gear Vendors which gives you 8
forward gears and at 70 mph the rpm is at 2,100. Drive shaft is only 31 inches long, the third member is a 323 posi
tract. New chrome power brake booster. New front and rear brakes, new 2 inch dropped spindles, front with new 1

proof and same type of carpet used as in the interior. Lastly, I have full documentation for everything done to

eBay Find of the Day: 1976 GMC Motorhome is a jolly green giant

Wed, 18 Jun 2014 18:01:00 EST

If you have a need to relive the 1970s, then here is the vehicle for you. This groovy blast from the past is a 1976 GMC Motorhome currently for auction in Florida on eBay Motors, and it is one green machine - just not in the modern sense.
The seller claims that this beast has had just two owners and has covered a mere 61,308 miles in its decades on the road. It's reportedly never been restored or repainted and comes with all of the necessary books and manuals. A 7.5-liter (455-cubic-inch) Oldsmobile V8 with a three-speed Turbo-Hydramatic automatic transmission powering the front wheels propels this far-out RV, and the double set of rear wheels out back use a self-leveling air suspension to provide a cushy ride.
The purported low miles and good condition really make this GMC a stand out, though. The exterior combination of lime stripes and beige with just a touch of green is like nothing else on the road today. Plus, the polished bumpers and wheels make it all pop. Inside, it's even better with monochromatic green upholstery and shag carpet. It features everything you'd ever need on a long trip, including a bathroom, kitchenette and lots of seating. The only hint of modernization is an HD TV next to the stove, but its size is a perfect fit for the hole there.

This Or That: 1980 Oldsmobile 442 vs. 1989 BMW 635CSi [w/poll]

Thu, 09 Oct 2014 12:45:00 EST

The last time I roped a coworker into an automotive debate, I lost. Resoundingly, I might add. Still, 2,385 voters chose to cast their lots for the Fiat 500 Abarth, as opposed to 5,273 choosing the Ford Fiesta ST, and so I can rest easy in the knowledge that at least 30 percent of you, dear readers, see things my way. I still like to think we have more fun, too.
My loss in the first round of our This or That series, in which two Autoblog editors pick sides on any given topic and then attempt to explain why the other is completely wrong, didn't stop me from picking another good-natured fight, this time with Senior Editor Seyth Miersma. Last time, our chosen sides were eerily similar in design, albeit quite different in actual execution. This time, our vehicular peculiarities couldn't seemingly fall any further from one another: A 1980 Oldsmobile 442 wouldn't seem to match up in comparison to a 1989 BMW 635CSi.
How did we come up with such disparate contenders? Simple, really. Seyth and I mutually agreed to choose a car that's currently for sale online. It had to be built and sold in the 1980s, and it had to be a coupe. The price cap was set at $10,000. The fruits of our searching labors will henceforth be disputed, with Seyth on the side of the Germans, and myself arguing in favor of the Rocket Olds. Am I setting myself up for another lopsided loss?

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.
