No Reserve Convertible Project Car Barn Find Delta Resto Mod 350 Touring Classic on 2040-cars
Bronx, New York, United States
NO RESERVE 1970 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Convertible This car needs bodywork on the right side door and quarter panel due to a recent collision. It runs and drives smoothly and comfortably. - The top works perfectly - no rips or tears - Everything works except for the right rear vent glass it is there but does not go up. This car appears to have been very well cared for and has only 81169 actual miles (may be slightly higher by the end of auction) The rocket 350 engine has a 2 barrel carb, and both appear to be original as well as the transmission -apologies I don't know how to check if they are #'s matching. (The rear end is a 12 bolt.) It starts right up every time runs good / strong sounds good and the trans feels crisp - perfect. Motor oil and transmission oil are clean. It has a single pipe exhaust that looks rusted bad (maybe original) but has new brackets/hardware and tube looking muffler. Recent shocks give it a very smooth ride. It has an electric radiator fan and an aftermarket cd radio that looks nicely done with a similar matching wood grain surround. This car is very solid and must have been garaged for a long time, there's some surface rust underneath but it looks nothing like many of the other "project cars "I have seen here on ebay. The paint looks nice and shines great but has some small spots of rust, small chips, bubbles and scratches. A driver quality car and simply a pleasure to drive. This car is being sold in AS-IS condition and buyer is responsible for pick up. Buyer will receive a transferable registration document that is standard as a clear title for older vehicles in NY along with a bill of sale. Arrangements can be made to see this car through messages, I reserve the right to cancel all bids and end the auction early due to it being available for sale locally. Please don't bid if your not sure if you have the funds or permission or whatever reason you can think of. As this is a real auction for real buyers and a real car. This car needs a new owner to take care of it as the previous one had. Great for a daily driver or weekend car. Thanks and good luck. This is a beautiful example of a full size 1970 Olds Delta Rocket 88 Convertible.

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.
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.
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.
