NICELY RESTORED, VERY RARE, 1957 OLDSMOBILE GOLDEN ROCKET SUPER 88 FIESTA WAGON WITH ORIGINAL 371 V8 AND J2
TRI-POWER SYSTEM...READY TO SHOW AND GO!!!
I recently acquired this very special 1957 Oldsmobile Fiesta Station Wagon from a true Oldsmobile enthusiast who
grew up hanging around the Oldsmobile Dealership where his father worked. He was a member of the Oldsmobile Club
of America and had the opportunity to buy this Station wagon almost 2 years ago from a 72 year old gentleman in
Michigan who owned the car for quite a few years. The body had been restored about 5 years ago and was
professionally painted in the original colors. Years went by and the owner was not able to complete the mechanical
rebuild so he decided to pass it along to the Oldsmobile enthusiast from Maryland who I bought it from. This
gentleman went through the car from front to back and rebuilt or serviced any mechanical systems that needed it.
This included a rebuild of the original J2 Tri-power carb. set up. He also decided to give it a slight resto mod
look with a great set of wheels but otherwise kept the look extremely original. While not flawless, this Wagon is
in exceptional condition overall and is quite rare. Station Wagons in general are becoming a hot category in the
classic car market and this '57 Oldsmobile Fiesta Wagon with the J2 Tri-power is definitely one to get excited by.

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.
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.
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.
