Up for auction is this 1956 Oldsmobile 98 2 door Holiday hard top coupe. This belonged to a good friend of mine who had a massive collection of mid 50's oldsmobiles through out his life. This was his favored one . He had done it up special for himself. The outside was done in red and black 2 tone paint scheme, 54 Desoto front grille,custom lake pipes, cruiser skirts, continental kit, dummy spot lights, sunvisor, and wire wheels up front. The interior is red and black crushed velour absolutely stunning. Beautiful original head liner with the chrome bows, excellant padded dash, custom console for gauges , am-fm cassette player , cb radio, 8 track tape player and switches that control under hood and body lights, and small compressor in the trunk that pumps up the rear air shocks. Car has the original 324 V-8 4bbl,dual exhaust, auto trans, ps,pb,power windows, tinted glass. Also has a custom made center arm rest that is removable.The trunk is also done up similar to the interior.A lot of the add on items can be removed if you feel it is too personalized. I sold this car for him 25 years ago to the last owner who has had it since. He updated a few things , added a lot of stainless steel dice items and had the motor and trans completely rebuilt. This car has been driven and shown at just about every show in the New England area. I have had a lot of people comment on it , some saying they have seen it in Vermont and New York just to name a couple. The last owner recently passed away so we had a chance to purchase it from his estate. The car was always garaged and babied . We also have 48 trophies and a number of dash plaques from the various shows he attended that will be included. The car runs and drives excellant. A real head turner where ever you go.We have a Nh registration and proper dealer paper work for a smooth transaction.

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.
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.
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?
