1970 Oldsmobile ToronadoReview
Powerful Sport Boat — This was Oldsmobile's flagship model back in the day, and it features front wheel drive. The 455cid Rocket V8 was standard, and so were front disc brakes. It accelerates and cruises effortlessly and can handle its 4,700 pound weight surprisingly well. There is no torque steer at all (this can be a problem in FWD cars with lots of power). Has been a reliable car considering its age.
Pros: 455 power, comfortable ride, classy looks, flat floor, reasonable handling, front wheel drive traction
Cons: 455 gas mileage, 38 years old, a tad gaudy

Best Car Ever
This was my first car, and will probably always remain my favorite. Sturdy build, and the ride is fantastic- rides so low to the ground you feel like you're driving a racecar. For a mid- 80s vehic... Read More
This boat is a classic. Made back when cars were suppose to offer a comfortable ride. Bench seating in the front makes for great dates. ;) Not a fan of the 'red' or rather orange paint, but still shar... Read More
