Nice running and driving car. Original 425 engine (I believe), I'm not an Oldsmobile expert, but my Oldsmobile friends have told me it is original, front wheel drive. Factory air conditioning that WORKS. Brand new factory style exhaust from front to rear. Nice interior. New carpet and seat upholstery. Perfect dash, no cracks. Nice original door panels. Needs a headliner. Front bumper has excellent chrome. Good body. Paint is marginally decent driver quality. To make the car excellent , put in a headliner, rechrome the rear bumper, and paint it. Glass is good. Body is straight. When I bought the car, it had rust damage in the rear floor pan. I had a new floor pan fabricated and welded in professionally. It also had a slight lifter tick, but the car was sitting for about 2 years. It has since pretty much gone away, but I want to disclose it anyway. The car drives nice. The heater works. The tires have good tread, but do have some weather cracks. I'd say you could drive on them for a while yet. The headlights turn on, but don't pop up. I haven't looked at it yet, but at first glance, I don't see the vacuum hose hooked up that actuates them. Probably a very simple fix. I'd suggest giving the car a good look-over, and fixing the minor details before a long drive. I've only driven the car about 25 miles since I've owned it. I would suggest having it shipped, as I don't have enough time behind the wheel of this car to be able to accurately say that it would or wouldn't make a long journey. Trunk pan is very solid, and it appears to have the original spare tire still in the trunk. Car has a clean, clear, Florida title, that can easily be transferred to any state. The car is located in Santa Clarita CA, 40 miles North of Los Angeles.
Please don't hestiate to call with any questions. I'm more than happy to talk about the car on the phone, to make sure you understand and are happy with what you are getting. My name is Chad.

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.
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.
