Build a 1901 OLDSMOBILE 3/4 size car Plans

Build a 1901 OLDSMOBILE 3/4 size car: Plans THIS REPLICA EYE-STOPPER GETS 70 MILES PER GALLON AUTHENTICALLY DETAILED, this automobile is not a toy or plaything but an honest-to-goodness horseless carriage sparing none of the quaintness or character that was embodied in the original. Not meant for heavy driving, of course, but ideally suited as a second car, this rig is excellent for those weekly super market trips, short-hop errands, gated communities, pep rallys, parades, etc. Sure, today’s sleek metal mastodons will get you there and back in extreme comfort, but if you’re hankering for an enjoyable old-fashioned car ride, plenty of free air-conditioning, for pennies a trip, ...

Curbside Classic 1959 Oldsmobile Super 88 The Truth About Cars

Curbside Classic: 1959 Oldsmobile Super 88 Contrasts and extremes; it s what keeps things (and this gig) from getting dull.  Today I give you the ultimate contrast to yesterday s Porsche 356A. Both were built at the same time, and were the pride and joy of their respective countries. A reasonably affluent buyer could afford either of these, although even the 60 hp Normal 356 cost somewhat more than the 315 hp Super 88 in 1959. Either way, their respective owners would have enjoyed the prestige and envy of their neighbors when they drove them home new. But look at these two cars forty years later, and what do we see? Contrasts; and lots of them. They re about as different as two cars can ...

Oldsmobile Returns! Car News Car and Driver

Oldsmobile Returns! April Fools! Toyota didn’t buy the Oldsmobile name, and nobody is reviving the brand yet. But we can still hope. Nearly four years to the day that the final Oldsmobile rolled off the assembly line in Lansing, Michigan, comes word that Oldsmobile is back. More startling than the announcement itself is its originnot from Lansing, not from Detroit, not from Michigan, not even from anywhere in North America. A statement from Tokyo, of all places, reports that Toyota has secured rights to the Oldsmobile name. Asked for comment, GM is remaining extremely tight-lipped on the issue at the moment while presumably trying to sort out internally what oversight allowed this to ...

Oldsmobile 98 Classic Cars Wiki

Oldsmobile 98 The Oldsmobile 98 (originally Series 90; a.k.a. Ninety-Eight) was a full-size automobile and the flagship model of the Oldsmobile division of General Motors. The name first appeared in 1941 and was used again after American consumer automobile production resumed post-World War II. It was, as it would remain, the top-of-the-line model, with lesser Oldsmobiles having lower numbers such as 66 and 76. These were replaced by the Oldsmobile 88 in 1949, and the two number-names would carry on into the 1990s as the bread and butter of the full-size Oldsmobile lineup until the Aurora would replace it for 1996. General Motors developed a system of sharing body panels between models of ...

Driving Today Oldsmobile Rocket ’88

Oldsmobile Rocket ’88 Oldsmobile is the senior American automotive marque. Its imminent demise after becoming so ingrained in the fabric of American life is more than a tragedy; it is a sacrilege. Perhaps no automotive brand is as quintessentially American as Oldsmobile. Oldsmobile has been smart, innovative, popular, and fearless through the years since that day in 1895 when Ransom E. Olds and his partner Frank Clark got together to build a horseless carriage. In 1897, Olds and some Lansing, Michigan, businessmen founded Olds Motor Vehicle Company and thus began the mass production of automobiles in the United States. Of course the Olds Curved Dash Runabout was the firm’s calling-card ...

Curbside Classic: 1972 Oldsmobile 98 Hardtop Coupe Not Just Another Pretty (Huge) Car April 19, 2011 I first spotted this 1972 Bill Mitchell-era General Motors C-body a couple years ago down here in sunny Daytona Beach, Florida. Yeah, I m clear across the continent from the publisher of this blog out in Eugene, Oregon. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to stop at that auto repair facility and get a few images of it. These gentleman s coupes were built in both Lansing, Michigan and Linden, New Jersey back in the heyday of this now defunct automaker. I have been unable to locate any production numbers [Ed: 37k] for this sweet old coupe but I am fairly confident they are a rare breed ...

It was late June 1986; we had come up to Revelstoke as tomorrow would be our wedding, then back to Coquitlam. We’d come over the Coquihalla in the ‘54 Dodge, trouble-free as usual, getting 26Ѕ MPG from Abbotsford. If only my best man had been so lucky. His ‘78 Oldsmobile Toronado only made it halfway to the Toll Gate and had to be towed to Hope for distributor repairs. I was trying to find downtown Revelstoke and was bouncing down ...
