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.

132198 / 1957 Oldsmobile: Golden Rocket 88
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/blcwa26
Don't be fooled by the large-by-huge chrome wheels it's wearing today, this
particular '57 Golden Rocket 88 is an authentic J2 car, and is extensively
and thoroughly restored to original condition from top to bottom. Our
documents suggest that this is one of only four Golden Rocket 88 2-door
sedans in existence with the J2 engine.
The two-tone bodywork on this car is spectacularly done and looks
especially striking in black and white with a red stripe in the chrome trim
that separates the two halves. Bodywork is beautiful, with straight panels
and excellent fit throughout, evidenced by the miles-deep reflections in
The real story on this Olds is the J2 371 cubic inch engine under the hood.
Fully rebuilt during the restoration, it runs like new and the passing of
years has proven that these are some extremely durable engines. Detailing
is first-rate too, from the 'Oldsmobile J2 Rocket" decals on the valve
covers, to the correct 2-barrel carburetors, to the original power steering
system that's fully functional. You'll note that this engine sports a trio
of shorty air cleaners on the carbs, but the original dual oil-bath air
cleaner is also included.
The engine is backed by a 3-speed Hydramatic transmission, and drives the
original rear end. Brakes were rebuilt to stock specifications, as was the
suspension, although the car was given a subtle, aggressive look by
tweaking the spring height slightly. The car wears a set of chrome Billet
Specialties wheels, but the original 15-inch steel wheels and plain hubcaps
From the tri-tone seats with patented GM comfort weave cushions, to the
positively breathtaking instrument cluster, this interior is new. The
original radio has been upgraded to include an iPod interface. The trunk is
sporting a custom carpet, but an original trunk mat is included.
This Olds is fast, comfortable, luxurious, and about 2/3 the cost of a
comparable Chevy. There are no irreversible modifications, and this car
could be put back to 100% stock condition in an afternoon. Act fast and

2008 Escape Throttle Cable Escape
My 2008 Ford Escape had a problem with the accelerator pedal. It was all
the way to the floor, and would not return. My Escape has a manual
I found that the cable came off of the accelerator pedal linkage.
Fortunately it happened in a parking area. I reached up under the dash and
put it back, so I could get home, and it stayed; however I did not trust it
would not come out again. You can see in the video how easily the cable
can slip out of the slot.
After further research, I found a technical service bulletin TSB-09-21-9,
describing the same situation I had. Ford has a fix for it, but it is not
considered a warranty or recall. Ford part number for repair kit is
8L8Z-9825-A. My local Ford dealer, where I purchased this vehicle brand
new, charged me $6.33 for this plastic clip. I would not let them install
it, because their service department broke my oil filler cap and left the
valve stems off my tires on my very first "3000 mile free oil change and
inspection". They also left a plastic cover loose near the passenger wheel
well when they installed a new belt tensioner and new belt. I lost faith
in that dealer, and probably would not even let them work on my bicycle.
I figured I had better do the repair myself, rather than letting the
problem go. I sure don't want to find out that my accelerator stopped
working as I let the clutch out on a hill, possibly rolling backwards into
a vehicle or pedestrian.
This video was shot with my cheap cell phone, so pardon the low quality.

1957 Oldsmobile Super 88 Tri-power 371 Rocket V8 - Rare J2 Option
I thought you'd like a look at this nicely restored 1957 Olds Super 88 2
dr. This awesome car also is equipped with the rare J2 option, which means
it has the Tri-power set-up atop the 371 Olds Rocket V8. The 371 Rocket has
the same bore as a 350 Chevy, but it has a longer stroke, which means it
cranks out a bunch of torque. This engine was factory rated at 400 LbFt of
torque and 277 horsepower. I hope you find
it interesting....thanks for taking a look!
