67 Olds 442 Burnout at Lorentz Wedding

This was a video I took of my best friend and his wife after their wedding. I purchased the car in origional condition in 1999 when I was in high school. It then was a Cutlass Supreme with the origional Rocket 330 and 2 speed Jetaway auto trans. I drove it without any mods for about a year then I decided to fit a Olds 455 in it. I built the engine from a Vista Cruiser and put a turbo 400 behind it with a full manual shift. I then completely rebuilt the rear axle and put lower gears in it with the olds cone type posi. I call it a 442 but it was a CS. I ran it down the strip a few times and it got mid 14's. One day testing on the track the float in the carb failed and ran the engin dry at full throttle halfway down the quarter mile. The resulting super lean mixture at 6000 rpm cracked #8 piston. I did not know it was damaged at the time since it was running well so I readjusted the carb a drove it home. On one of my trips from WYOTECH to home I gunned it hard up a hill and the piston let go. It was fun while it lasted. I then removed the engine and took the car to my Chassis Fab class at WYOTECH where I completely removed the body, boxed the frame and control arms and installed an NHRA certified rollcage. I was then deployed to Iraq for a year and then was married-----I never had the time or money to finish my project. I sold it to my best friend for $1000 and he has turned it into more than I could ever afford. There is most likely 10 grand in the engine alone and more mods are being done everyday. Its great to still be able to see the car I fell in love with 10 years ago being enjoyed today by a great friend.

1937 Oldsmobile
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

Information about Oldsmobile V8 engines
In this video I talk about the "late" Oldsmobile V8 and offer tips on how to identify them by number. "Late" in this instance means 1964-1990. Early('49-64) Olds engines are an entirely different block, etc. Sometimes my info gets a bit twisted when it stays inside my head for a while, so a correction is that '77-80 heads are 3A, not 4A. 4A heads are 403 pieces. Also, to clarify and avoid confusion, this...7 A is a 350 head, this...7A is a later 307 head. You can also tell the difference easily by the ports. Late 307 and 260 ports are half the size of any other versions. Trivia: The Olds 403 was used in 1977-79 Pontiac Trans-Am's, but not all of them. Of note...the engine in the video is painted the incorrect shade of gold, which appears to be the Krylon generic gold. The proper shade is slightly darker and less "glitzy"

132684 / 1968 Oldsmobile Toronado
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/bqnsftq You're looking at what is without question the nicest 1968 Oldsmobile Toronado on Earth. With just 10,042 original miles, this triple black luxury cruiser is at the leading edge of an emerging trend. As stunning as this car is, imagine the reaction when it hit the streets in the late 1960s! Finished in black with a black vinyl top, it's a rare color combination from an era when bright metallic were all the rage. As a low-mile original, you know the car has never been apart, rusty, or damaged, so all the body gaps are just as the factory did it, and it fits together extremely well. The guys at Oldsmobile knew they were building something special, and it would become a halo model for the entire General Motors corporation, a symbol of their engineering prowess. The big news for 1968 was indeed big—455 cubic inches big! Generating a very impressive 375 horsepower and a towering 510 pounds of torque, the wonderful V8 easily moves the Toronado in a way that says muscle car more than luxury coupe. It is also beautifully and expertly detailed, with proper Oldsmobile Turquoise paint on the block, a correct air cleaner and decal, and a lot of bright hardware that looks fresh off the factory assembly line. Thanks to its outstanding originality, this car is a veritable road map for restorers and will be a contender at the highest levels, and not just in survivor classes, but in any class. At first glance, one would think that a big coupe with an American V8 up front driving the front wheels would be a recipe for understeer, but the truth is that the Toro is quite well balanced and even agile for a car of its size. GM engineers did a spectacular job of packaging, which puts the torque converter behind the engine in the usual place, but the special TH425 3-speed automatic lives next to the engine, not behind it. The whole assembly is driven by a chain that GM called "indestructible" and after years of real-world testing in the field, that has proven to be largely true. This one also features power drum brakes at all four corners, with the finned drums themselves used as design elements poking through the wheels. Those handsome wheels are unique to the front-wheel-drive full-size GM vehicles, and carry period-perfect narrow white stripe radials. The black interior is brilliant, with avant-garde design and beautifully executed detailing that shows you that GM was pulling no punches in the 1960s. The unique drivetrain allows a completely flat passenger compartment floor, which means six can ride in true comfort. The wide bench seats offer an inviting combination of fabric and vinyl seating surfaces, with the front seat giving the illusion of buckets thanks to a wide center armrest. The gauges flank an extremely cool rotating speedometer, just behind a steering wheel clearly influenced by Olds' rocket insignia. There's also an AM/FM radio, a power antenna, and just enough chrome to offset all the black upholstery. The giant trunk carries a full sized spare and jack assembly tucked way up in the front, leaving plenty of room for a week's worth of luggage. Make no mistake, the first generation Toronados are appreciating quickly. Of course, the trick is always to find a low-mileage, solid example, and there just can't be any nicer than this. Add in the highly desirable triple black color combination and its simply stunning presentation, and you have a Toro that will win fans wherever it goes. Compare this car to any of its muscle car cousins and you'll see that it represents a screaming bargain at the same time. Big horsepower in a trim, 2-door coupe package has always been a winning recipe, and Oldsmobile fans have known it for years. Now it's your turn. Call today!
