Watch Video:

No evidence of collision damage or rust deterioration
Body is straight, doors shut smooth & tight.   Dash is uncut.  Gauges are all intact.  Speedometer makes a irritating clunking noise but Im certain someone with good eyesight could correct this. All gauges are functional.  The battery is fairly new.  The fuel pump gasket was also replaced 4 months ago.  Lack of operation resulted in fuel leak. 
I have owned this car for 6 years and driven no more than 50 miles due to health issues and losing driving priviledge. During period of my ownership , the  radiator and carb has been rebuilt.  I lowered the car by shortening shock springs.  This  allowed for better handeling and provided the  look I wanted.   
Paint has  some odd scratches on hood, top and passenger rear quarter panel from what was described to me as an awning collapse in sudden windstorm. ( See last few pic's).

This car is  reliable to start, runs strong and has no known mechanical issues.    If you don't like attention, this car is not for you.

Previous 2 owners were also California residents.  Documents/ repair records are consistent with odometer reading (mileage: 76,981)


It is my hope that enthusiasm of new owner will  give this fine automobile the attention & care it deserves.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.  I will respond as soon as possible, usually in evening hours.  Thank you and happy bidding!

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.

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.

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.
