In celebration of post #455......

I fondly remember my first car....my 1970 Oldsmobile Toronado GT

Ever have a ROCKET in your POCKET?

455cid / 4bbl carb / Dual Exhaust - 8-Track in-dash, baby......

Good stylin' car, threebutchers........my uncle had two Toronado's, a '67 and a '70 back in the day. Can't beat the 8 tracks, or at least you couldn't back then since it was the only thing around then.

My father had (2) 1967s, 1970, 1974...I bought his 1970 and had a 1969 for a short while. Most motorhomes today get better gas mileage!

The 67 was my favorite. I agree, some motorhomes would get a lot better gas mileage than those 455 Ultra High Compression Rocket V8's.....but they could get up and go.

We never had an Olds but we had a Caddy Eldorado with all the goodies at one time. It was fond of lots of premium gas. It was the same platform as the Toronado with a bigger engine.
