E-Mail Questions at: firstname.lastname@example.org .
I HAVE FOR SALE A VERY RARE 1967 OLDSMOBILE CUTLASS 442 CONVERTIBLE WITH BUCKET SEATS, FACTORY TILT SPORT WHEEL AND
FACTORY AIR CONDITIONING. ONE OF ONLY ABOUT 3,150 CONVERTIBLES BUILT. THIS CAR WAS SOLD NEW AT RUDMAN OLDSMOBILE
INC. IN HIGHLAND PARK FLORIDA ON DECEMBER 21,1966. THIS WAS A ONE OWNER CAR UNTIL 2001 WHEN THE ORIGINAL OWNER
PASSED AWAY AT 99 YEARS OF AGE. HE LEFT THE CAR TO HIS DAUGHTER WHO SPENT OVER $7,000 IN THE EARLY 2000'S TO HAVE
THE ORIGINAL ENGINE REBUILT, TRANSMISSION REBUILT, BRAKES AND NUMEROUS OTHER ITEMS REBUILT OR REPLACED. THE CAR
HAD JUST OVER 100,000 MILES AT THE TIME. I HAVE ALL THE RECORDS FOR THE WORK SHE HAD DONE.
I PURCHASED THE CAR FROM HER IN 2008, IT STILL HAD 100% ORIGINAL PAINT AND THE ORIGINAL TOP FROM 1966. THE
PAINT WAS A LITTLE TOO FAR GONE TO BE A NICE SURVIVOR PAINT CAR HAVING NUMEROUS AREAS OF LACQUER CRACKING AND SOME
SPRAY CAN TOUCH UPS IN A FEW AREAS WHERE HER FATHER HAD SCRAPED THE SIDES OF THE CAR ON THE GARAGE. IN 2009 I
STARTED THE RESTORATION OF THE CAR, I COMPLETELY STRIPPED THE CAR OF ALL TRIM,EMBLEMS, RUBBER GASKETS AND BUMPERS.
THE ENTIRE INTERIOR WAS ALSO REMOVED BEFORE GOING TO THE BODY SHOP. THE ENTIRE CAR WAS STRIPPED TO BARE METAL,

FILLER WAS USED TO SMOOTH THE BODY AND MAKE IT LASER STRAIGHT. THE ENTIRE FRONT END WAS REMOVED, BUMPERS, FENDERS,
RADIATOR SUPPORT AND INNER FENDERS. I BROUGHT THE CAR HOME BEFORE PAINTING WITH THE FRONT END OFF SO THAT I COULD
PERSONALLY DETAIL THE FRAME, ENGINE, HEATER BOX AND AIR CONDITIONING AND ALL COMPONENTS IN THE ENGINE COMPARTMENT.
THE RADIATOR SUPPORT, INNER FENDERS AND HEATER BOX WERE ALL POWDER COATED IN LOW GLASS BLACK. THE HEATER CORE,
BLOWER MOTOR, FAN SPEED RESISTOR WERE REPLACED. THE FACTORY AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM WAS COMPLETELY RESTORED USING
AN EXACT REPRODUCTION A/C CONDENSER, THE CORRECT STYLE ORIGINAL DRIER BOTTLE WAS REMANUFACTURED AND ALL RUBBER O
RINGS IN THE SYSTEM HAVE BEEN REPLACED. THE A/C BELT HAS NEVER BEEN PUT BACK ON THE CAR SINCE THE RESTORATION AND
THE SYSTEM HAS NEVER YET BEEN RE CHARGED WITH R-12 REFRIGERANT. THE VALVE COVERS WERE REPLACED WITH ORIGINAL
FACTORY STYLE W-30 CHROME VALVE COVERS, THE ORIGINAL AIR CLEANER LID HAS BEEN RE CHROMED. THE ORIGINAL NUMBERS
MATCHING DATE CODE CORRECT ROCHESTER CARBURETOR HAS BEEN CONCOURSE RESTORED AND LOOKS AS NEW. ALL PARTS IN THE
ENGINE COMPARTMENT HAVE BEEN REPLACED AND OR RESTORED EXACTLY AS FACTORY ORIGINAL JUST LIKE IT WAS STILL ON THE
SHOW ROOM FLOOR INCLUDING THE CORRECT ORIGINAL STYLE 1967 BATTERY WITH SPRING RING BATTERY CABLES. THE CAR WAS
BROUGHT BACK TO THE BODY SHOP, FRONT FENDERS PAINTED OFF THE CAR AND THEN REASSEMBLED. I PERSONALLY PUT THE ENTIRE
CAR BACK TOGETHER TO INSURE THAT IT WAS NOT DAMAGED OR SCRATCHED AND THAT ONLY THE CORRECT BOLTS, NUTS AND SCREWS
WERE INSTALLED EXACTLY AS ORIGINAL. BOTH THE ORIGINAL FRONT AND REAR BUMPERS WERE SENT OUT AND RE CHROMED. THE
ORIGINAL FRONT BUMPER VALANCE WAS POWDER COATED SILVER AS ORIGINAL . ALL EMBLEMS WERE REPLACED WITH NOS EMBLEMS.

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.
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.
