Oldsmobile Ninety Eight Regency Coupe "cream Puff" on 2040-cars

Year:1983 Mileage:46000
Location:

New Carlisle, Ohio, United States

New Carlisle, Ohio, United States

This Olds 98 Regency is truly a super clean luxury automobile. It has approximately 46000 original miles, no rust anywhere and mostly all original paint.....some minor scratches. The interior is nearly perfect....one minor "start-to-a" crack about an inch long on the back side of the driver's door arm rest. It did not show up in the pictures....not vivid enough. I filled this small crack with a thin bead of super glue to stop its progress some time ago as the door panel otherwise is so nice that seemed to be the best option. That is the car's most serious flaw. I replaced the stock intake with an Edelbrock Olds 350 Performer and this very minor change has added serious "pick-up"/acceleration and raised HWY MPG to as high as 24 mpg. This is definitely not a "doggy" 307! I saved the original cast iron 75 pound intake in case a future owner would like to go back to original condition. The car runs/shifts and stops as new. In have owned this since 2006. This year we are trying to sell some of our collectors (13 cars). We also have an very unique/nice 1984 Fleetwood Brougham Cadillac currently listed (modified PWR- TBI fuel injected 425 Cadillac V-8) and hope to list some more excellent collectors soon. Happy bidding.....there is NO BUY IT NOW AND THE AUCTION WILL NOT END EARLY. Please email or call with any questions (email is preferred); thank you for your interest.
I can deliver the car for an agreed-to additional fee depending on distance & time to the winning bidder/purchaser.

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

Thu, 09 Oct 2014

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?

Jay Leno bangs up his own Toronado in GT6

Wed, 11 Dec 2013

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.

GM recalling 8.4M cars, 8.2M related to ignition problems

Mon, 30 Jun 2014

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.
