1962 Oldsmobile F85 Jetfire Factory Turbocharged -

Body: The paint has aged very well with little exposure to the climate. There are now two spots of rust coming through by the chrome trim on both C pillar. There is very small evidence of bubbling at the lower front edge of the drivers door.
It is very small. I have pics of it but the spots just do not show . The stainless trim shows very nice. It is
original and not reproduction. The front bumper looks excellent. The rear bumper has poor chrome work. The
windows are original and in excellent shape.

Chassis The bottom of the car was not restored. It still has the original paint. It is greasy, but shows well.
As per the original invoice in the gallery the owner added "undercoating" at the dealer prior to delivery. It is
still in place. The suspension components are all well greased and maintained evidencing by the way the car drives
which is excellent.

Motor: As per the protecto plate the original motor number HH138823 is still with the car today. As is the
transmission. In 1962 many complained about how the cars turbo responded. The dealers Fix was to discarded the
turbos and replaced with quadra jets. This car was left stock. The turbo is original and works perfectly. This
car was subject to annual oil changes and multiple transmission fluid changes. The motor pulls hard and has no
strange noises. The extra "turbo rocket fluid" comes with the car. This fluid was methanol to keep detonation
down.

Interior: The interior is original with the exception of the carpet. Carpet was replaced in 1994. It appears to
be NOS. The original seats are showing small tears, and look to be a bit dry. The dash, chrome door panels, and
headliner show very well. The gauges as well as the lights all work well.

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.

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.

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.
