1985 Oldsmobile Toronado Brougham Caliente on 2040-cars

Year:1985 Mileage:150437
Location:

Hackensack, New Jersey, United States

Hackensack, New Jersey, United States

   You are looking at a very attractive and good running Toronado Caliente. The Caliente was the upscale version of the Toronado, notice the special trim along the upper body lines and the thickly padded landau vinyl top. The engine runs strong, with no smoke, or noises. The transmission shifts properly. The steering and brakes are responsive and are as they should be. The air conditioning blows ice cold, the heat works properly, the  power windows, seats and locks work properly. All lights, wipers and horn work properly, as does the radio, although the sound is marginal, I think the speakers are a bit tired. The tires have decent tread, but I don't know how old they are.


  The car looks good on the outside, inside and underneath. The vinyl top is nearly new, it was replaced last year. The bumper fillers, which were all broken, when I bought the car, were all replaced last year. The car has been painted, at some point over it's twenty nine years and it looks good, but is not perfect. In addition to some clarity issues, which are minor and mostly confined to around the corners of the car. Perhaps some wet sanding would improve the clarity greatly. There is a small ding on the hood, maybe a couple of inches and very minor. There are several minor chips and scratches around the body, but nothing to worry about.


  The interior is quite nice! The leather seats and steering wheel are immaculate. The dash, the door panels and headliner are in very nice condition. The carpet has no rips, but there is discoloration on the carpet on the driver's side front floor "see picture" The trunk is clean, dry and solid. The engine compartment is good, but could  use a better detailing if you are particular.


  Please look at all of the pictures and read my entire description. This is a very inexpensive way to enter the collector car hobby. You can drive and enjoy this car just as it is, but please remember that this is a twenty nine year old car, that has been driven and enjoyed for all of these years. PLEASE don't expect a "show car" because it is what I would call a very good "driver quality" car.


  This car has a low reserve and I have the car listed to be sold. I have another toy coming, so this car needs to go. It will give somebody a chance to get a good car for a low price. Please bid to own. The car is for sale locally, so I reserve the right to end the auction early.


  You are invited to come see and drive this car before you bid. If you have a question, please ask, before you bid, please don't "assume" anything. I have tried to describe this car thoroughly and completely, but your opinion may be different than mine. The car is SOLD AS-IS, with NO warranties expressed, or implied. My name is Bill Marcy, you are welcome to call me at 201 954 3159, if you would like to speak to me personally. Thank you for viewing my auction and reading my ramblings. I would appreciate a $200 paypal deposit at the close of the auction and the balance within seven "7" days, preferably by bank wire transfer, money order, or cash in person. International buyers MUST pay by bank wire transfer, NO EXCEPTIONS..


  Thank you and have fun bidding!

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.

This Or That: 1980 Oldsmobile 442 vs. 1989 BMW 635CSi [w/poll]

Thu, 09 Oct 2014 12:45:00 EST

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?

Ferrari FF pitted against Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser in crazy Generation Gap comparison

Thu, 13 Nov 2014 19:58:00 EST

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.
