Selling a storage yard find. 1964 Oldsmobile F85 Holiday 2 door hardtop. This appears to have been a project car that was left behind. I bought the car outright so title is in hand. It is currently registered until Dec/13. I've driven it around the yard so it does start, drive and stop as it should. Engine is a 330 4 Bbl V8, Has a 2 speed auto trans with T-handle floor shifter, Came with an A/C dash and firewall but compressor and brackets are gone. Heater core is disconnected. Has power driver seat, P/steering, P/drum brakes, Tilt column, the passenger seat is in pieces in the trunk. Tires are in good shape with good tread and no cracks. Paint is an obvious repaint but looks decent. Some rust issues in the back window channel but no rust in trunk. Trunk pan was replaced and painted gloss black. This model came with chrome moldings but the previous owner had them removed and welded in the holes before painting the car. There were no chrome pieces found in the trunk or the interior. The interior is the downside to this car, as seen in the pictures. The interior is supposed to be white but looks more like a storage shed. The dash is pretty much there, the driver seat is there, the backseat is there, No headliner, No door panels, No console. The black carpet is there but needs to be replaced. I was going to turn this into a 442 clone but the job went out of state. Now I've got to sell what could have been my kids first car. My loss is one mans dream car. I will not sell this American Muscle car outside of the country but if that is your option I would rather not know.

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 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.
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?
