Up for auction is what I think is a real 1972 442. I have pictures from the previous owner when the car was repainted once back in the late 80's in the correct factory orange color. I will provide the winning bidder only with previous owners name, phone number and pictures. He owned this car for 20 plus years and parked it in the early 90's next to his shop. It runs and drives around the yard but has been sitting for 15 plus years and needs fuel lines and brake line work. Has an original GM OAI ram air hood, 442 grilles, 442 rear bumper with cut outs, rear spoiler and like NOS front fenders. Previous owner said he put on the NOS front fenders and trunk lid when it was painted. A local painter who did the work responded to this add back in the winter time when I had posted it before and said that was true. I took out the passenger side inner fender and took a pic to show you how nice the bottom legs of the front fenders are. 350 numbers matching engine with 4 bbl carb and non matching 350 turbo trans which was rebuilt before being parked and looks to also be true by the looks of the case and pan. Has power front disc brakes, open 10 bolt rear with original spiral GM factory shocks. 4 core radiator with 4 core top plate. In 1972 you could get the 442 package on any cutlass and it did not show up in the VIN like the previous years did. The doors have scaly rust, but rockers look great. Rear trunk pan is gone and so are front floor pans. Worst spot is around the tail lights in the rear panel. Radiator support has rust under the battery tray area. All glass is good but some of the interior stuff is missing. This was a bucket seat console car. It has a tilt steering column. I hooked up a shifter from my 69 cutlass to drive it around the yard and also put the tires and wheels on it from my car and they are not included in the sale. When the car is loaded onto a trailer I will remove my shifter and wheels. I have the orange rally wheels with tires and they hold air for about 5 min but are very dry rotted. There are no centers or trim rings on them. Again the shifter and wheels on the car are not included in this auction. The frame has scaly rust and back next to the gas tank there are 2 very thin spots where the box part of the frame stops and goes to the rear bumper area. You could sell the front fenders, ram air hood, rear spolier and deck lid for more than my asking price. Must be removed within 10 days after auction ends. Clear title. Take a look at my other auctions.

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.
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?
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.
