1966 Olds 442 W30 MuscleCar Nationals Race & Show Fun
Great memories racing and showing my 1966 Olds 442 Tri-Carb W30 with friends at the MuscleCar Nationals in Sacramento. I restored it to showroom condition in the 1980's, including balancing and blueprinting the original Olds 400 engine and drivetrain to factory specs as documented in the 2-part article I wrote for Musclecar Review magazine. It's all 442 including the original Olds 400 "E" block, heads, carbs, intake/carbs, etc, and raced on DOT legal street tires through mufflers and full Exhaust per Musclecar Nationals factory stock rules. I raced my first 442 in stock eliminator during the 1960's, and had a ball with my friends showing and racing this one at various events around the country. I hope you enjoyed sharing this trip down musclecar memory lane with me.

This video is dedicated to my good friend John Seguin, who died shortly after he videotaped some of the racing scenes in this video for me. Here's to John and our other friends who share our passion for cars: cars and shows may come and go, including the MuscleCar Nationals, but our memories make sure that "Good Friends are Forever".
Follow the Leader is the sales introduction film prepared for dealers to let them know all of sales advantages to be found in a 1937 Oldsmobile. In 1937, Oldsmobile was a pioneer in introducing a four-speed semi-automatic transmission called the "Automatic Safety Transmission", although this accessory was actually built by Buick, which would offer it in its own cars in 1938. This transmission featured a conventional clutch pedal, which the driver pressed before selecting either "low" or "high" range. In "low," the car shifted between first and second gears. In "high," the car shifted between first, third and fourth gears. S134

1967 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme 442 Commercial
In 1967, the 442 was only available in the Cutlass Supreme Edition of Old's midsize. The 442 was still a performance package available on the Sports and Holiday coupes as well as the convertible. When you look at at the cowl tag, the car series and body ID number should include the "338xx" sequence after the "67" designation. Olds 442s from 1967 should have a "C" stamped into the front of the left cylinder head and inside the right rear cylinder head. The model year also featured the new QuadraJet four-barrel carburetor, an auto or manual turbo HydraMatic transmission and a bronze-colored 400-cubic-inch engine. An odd third number in the cowl tag series number means the car in question has had its original V-6 replaced with a V-8 and is thus not a true Olds 442.
