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.
Oldsmobile Alero Compilation
Usually runs around a 6.6 0 - 60 time, but in the video it was humid like

Supercharged Alero getting tuned
This is my car on a Dyno at Done Rite Automotive
Performance (http://www.doneriteautomotive.com/)in Mosinee. This was one of
the last runs while being tuned for the Supercharger. I'm using the limited run Eaton Gen
4 M62 which was found on the Grand Am SCT concept car. This is a rare Supercharger but sometimes can be found on
grandamgt.com. The blower can take more with a smaller pulley. My friend
that had this before me was running 11-12 psi with a smaller pulley and
really no other supporting modifications. The car is making 200 hp at the
wheels with 5 pounds of Boost.

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
