Selling my 1952 Oldsmobile Holiday 98 two door Hardtop. As Near as we can tell this car was restored around 20-25 years ago. This is a great looking 98. One of a kind color of Cascade green bottom and Palm Green Top. Those are the colors it should be according to the paint code.]
All window hydraulic cylinders have been changed and the seat also! Right rear window needs some coaxing sometimes, Has new springs shocks and all bushings in rear. Nearly all the chrome has been redone and looks awesome. It still has the original head liner that is in good shape and no tears.
Some things that come with the car are new coil springs for the front. Original wheel covers plus the wire baskets on the car and the one in the trunk. The bottom to the oil bath breather. Brand new original style plaid covering for the trunk. New 6 volt temperature sending unit.
Things that I know of that don't work are:
- Back-up Lights
- Interior Lights
- Has a very small oil leak on the front seal on motor
- Battery Box has some rust in the bottom
- Temperature gauge shows warmer than normal but actual motor is around 180 degrees
As you can see by the pictures it has some paint issues but still is and awesome looking driver. I've been over this car with a magnet and couldn't find any bondo. The paint on the bottom of the drivers side door came off at some point and has had a touch up that shows some wear! Passenger door paint has small crack, look at the pictures to see.
This car is a crowd favorite where ever it goes. It has won 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place awards at nearly every car show its been at. I've owned this car for 8 years and it has been a lot of fun. Got a new project and don't have room for 2 cars.
It runs excellent and has the original 303 V8 and Hydromatic trans. Dual exhaust that sounds great.
I will expect $1000 non-refundable pay pal within 3 days of the end of the auction and the balance within 10 days of the end of the auction.
Call for additional pictures.
I will deliver this car within 700 miles of Omaha, NE in my enclosed trailer for $1.25 per mile

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?
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.
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.
