1966 OLDSMOBILE TORONADO Selling my much loved Oldsmobile Toronado. It reads 21,000 miles but there is no way to prove it. The history is the car sat for years in a Palm Springs California garage. I bought it and brought it back to Indiana. This is the most rust free car you will ever see. Rock solid, underside is beautiful. I decided that to have the engine rebuilt, due to the fact it had sat so long it had a timing chain failure. I spent over $5,000.00 on just the engine. It was returned to factory specs. all the way. The engine was painted in factory color before the install. It looks just like new. The paint is very nice. The tires are new. It runs beautifully. The brakes are great. Bumpers are beautiful. The seats are in great shape. No rips or tears or dryness. The carpet is new. (I still have the original floor plate with the vinyl if you want to put that back). The front door panels are fair, but should be replaced for perfection. Dash has a couple of cracks from heat over the years. All power windows work fine. Power seat works fine. I have the original radio for it, but it has a period am-fm installed now. Have extra comfortron head, also have the original California Emission system. Have 2 or 3 boxes of extra parts for the car, including all of the old engine parts that were replaced during the rebuild. All will be included. The original chrome toronado wheels are beautiful. The Toronado is not perfect, but very close. It is a very nice car. I have priced it to sell at a very big loss to me. I have recently moved to a new house and have room for only 4 vehicles now. Please email or call with any questions. 574-220-6661. Shipping if needed is up to buyer. I can provide you with a name of a very reasonable shipper if needed. Thank You for considering the Toronado.

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.
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.
