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.

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".

Priced a 442 lately? Auction results show that these under-appreciated cars
are finally getting the respect they deserve. They're still not quite
competing on equal ground with big block Chevelles, but I don't think the
market is done with the Oldsmobiles yet, either. This 1967 Oldsmobile
Cutlass 442 most certainly will get a ton of admiring glances at the local
cruise night. It packs the potent 442 formula: 400 cubic inches, a 4-speed
transmission, and dual Exhaust, making
it a blast to drive.
Painted in a near mirror finish black paint, this car looks awesome in
person. Oldsmobiles were for adults, and this is a sophisticated color that
doesn't scream "muscle car!" the way Carousel Red on a GTO does. The panel
gaps are fantastic all around, and the sheetmetal is smooth and straight,
just like it needs to be in order to pull off such a color. There are no
patches in the wheel wells, or anywhere else on this car. This is
definitely a car that you will be proud to own and show one that will
reward a Saturday afternoon washing and waxing it with a Saturday evening
of gawks and stares as you go cruising. All the stainless and chrome is in
great condition, as are the headlight surrounds and grille. All the 442
badges have been reinstalled, a nice styling touch that makes cars like
Under the hood, you'll find the 442 400ci (casting number 390925E), with
fresh paint. This motor runs awesome! The engine compartment is has clearly
been freshened up recently, and looks great today. The giant 442 air
cleaner up top is shiny and beautiful. Up front is a huge radiator. The
restoration includes coated headers, HEI distributor, MSD wires, a new
alternator, a new gas tank and a recent alignment. There is power steering,
and upgraded disc brakes with a fresh power Booster. This car uses a newer Exhaust system and stainless steel mufflers. It
runs extremely well, with that distinctive Oldsmobile sound, and will be
one of the most bulletproof muscle cars you'll ever own.
The engine is partnered with a Richmond 4-speed. The rest of the
undercarriage is solid, with no patches and no rust on the frame or
floorboards. The rockers are rust free, you can see the spot welds and the
fenders are beautiful. The rear lower control arms are reinforced and the
sway bars and upper and lower bushings are all in good shape. There are new
spindles as well. Power gets to the ground via a GM 12-bolt 3:73 posi rear
Settle into the black bucket seat interior and you're surrounded by one of
the most inviting driving environments available in 1967. The black vinyl
buckets have a cool, upscale texture to them that matches the door panels.
The Hurst shifter comes up out of the floor instead of a console. There is
a column mounted tach along with a trip of aftermarket gauges mounted under
the dash. An AM/FM/CD radio with remote sits next to that trio of gauges
under the dash. Most of the stuff in here is recent; including the carpets
and headliner. All of the interior lights work. The wood steering wheel is
If you've been watching the market, you know that underrated cars like the
442 and Buick Grand Sports are now coming into their own. Personally, I
like them more than their Chevelle cousins; they're every bit as fast, but
are more upscale and unique. This one is exactly the kind of car I like
best, one you can get in and drive without worries. The mechanicals are
solid and it looks spectacular inside and out, perfect for a weekend show
or local cruise night. Heck, this is the kind of car I would drive to work
every sunny day and not think twice about it, and no matter where you go,
it'll get people talking. The pedigree is such that you can buy with
confidence knowing that it won't lose value in the coming years, and any
money you spend on it between now and then can be considered a smart
investment a matching numbers 442 will only go up in value. There have been
people having fun with this car for more than 40 years. Now it's your turn.

If you're in the market for a spectacular summer cruiser with tons of
character and an unbeatable price, this incredible 442 is the car for you!
This super clean 1966 Oldsmobile Cutlass Holiday coupe was originally sold
to Mr. Willis Foltz by Central Carolina Motors in Winston-Salem, North
Carolina. Recently, the car underwent a professional body-off restoration
which added all the correct trim and details to transform it into one of
the finest 442 tributes we've ever offered!
The 455 cubic inch Oldsmobile Rocket V8 that's bolted between this car's
freshly painted fenders is certainly not the measly short-deck 400 that '66
442s originally came with. In fact, it's a fully detailed torque monster
which sounds meaner than most of the cars in our RK Motors showroom and
wears a deceitful coat of Bronze paint that looks fantastic against the
car's satin black engine bay. Turn the key and a chrome Holley carburetor
sends air from a stylish aluminum air cleaner and fuel from braided hoses
and polished stainless lines into an Edelbrock Performer Oldsmobile 455
aluminum intake. Fire for that air/fuel mixture is provided by an HEI
distributor which shoots sparks through Xact plug wires that are loomed
around pristine chrome Edelbrock valve covers. And spent gases from that
air/fuel mixture are jetted through fully restored cast iron Exhaust manifolds that are bolted to a true dual
Exhaust system. At the front of the
engine, fresh hoses and new belts snake around a fully detailed alternator,
a correct seven blade fan and a rebuilt power steering pump.
During its restoration, the bottom of this Cutlass was over-restored to
include glossy and spotless Burgundy Mist floorpans which contrast
brilliantly with its satin black frame and top notch driveline. At the
front of the car, a factory correct double A-arm suspension holds stiff
coil springs around road ready shocks which provide a smooth ride and good
handling. At the back of the car, an original equipment triangulated four
link suspension hangs road ready shocks next to a 10 bolt limited slip rear
end which provides excellent launches. And at the center of the car, a turbo-Hydramatic 400 3-speed automatic
transmission does an excellent job of managing the 455's massive torque.
Braking is provided by factory equipped power drums which scrub speed at
all four corners of the car. Turning is aided by factory correct power
steering that is surprisingly competent. Exhaust flows from the restored manifolds into a
mandrel bent, true dual system that is complete with great sounding
Flowmaster dual chamber mufflers. And throwing the big engine's power to
the ground is a pristine set of 14 inch Oldsmobile stamped style one wheels
which spin 225/70 Cooper Cobra Radial G/Ts around chrome, rocket branded
Inside the car, you'll find a nicely restored Saddle interior which is both
comfortable and appealing. Stylish, freshly covered bench seats sit on
like-new tan carpet that extends up the car's vertical surfaces to cover
both its kick panels and lower door panels. Those door panels, which have
to be some of GM's best design work, hang pristine rocket emblems and great
looking trim pieces on fresh vinyl which mirrors the pleat pattern of the
seats. At the front of the car, a body-matched dash pad, which shows no
signs of sun damage, hangs 442-specific round gauges above a correct AM
radio and a modern Sunpro three pack. And at the top of the car, a tight
and pliable headliner stretches from the windshield to the package tray to
frame awesome, C-pillar mounted courtesy lamps. In front of the driver a
satin finished, two-spoke steering wheel spins a red Oldsmobile rocket logo
above a column mounted shifter for the 3-speed automatic transmission. And
behind the cockpit, a Burgundy Mist trunk props fresh decklid decals above
a full-size spare tire and a fresh houndstooth trunk mat.
You know, it's becoming pretty hard to find nice Oldsmobile muscle cars;
and when they're built and priced like this Cutlass coupe, it easy to see
why! Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com for more information

Mopar Meet at Motegi, Drag Race Compilation
A video compilation of the drag race event held at the 2008 Mopar Meet in
Motegi, Japan on June 22, 2008.
It was pure heads-up drag racing just for the fun of it, with no classes
and no time-keeping, although there was a christmas tree for starts.
The field consisted of beautifully restored pure stock classic Mopars,
modified street/strip machines reminiscent of the classic Super Stock/Pro
Stock cars of the 60's and 70's, some modern Mopar muscle, and even a few

anything! No exploded diagram or video or even pictures. So, to help others
once I figured this out, I made this video. Make sure to leave a comment

Classic Custom Car Show Muscle Car Auto Racing
A Day at the classic car show. Some home video footage of classic muscle
cars cruising around the OC Fairgrounds. Revving their engines and melting
rubber around corners, those cars made my day. One of the cars was a custom
fiberglass Camaro, with
fake animal interior. All type of custom work rocked this classic car from
zebra skin, cheetah, to leopard (not the Def kind). A slammed lowrider
purple roadster puttered by us, and that was only one Low rider. There was
a Gravedigger low rider, 1 inch off the ground. Awesome footage of a red Mustang racing around the
track to pull of a great lap time. One muscle car race driver made it
around in 29.8 seconds. All in all a great day at the Classic Custom Car
Show. I love muscle cars.
