For a while my dad drove Oldsmobiles. The first was one he inherited or bought from my mom’s father. He must have liked it because he bought a new fire engine red 1966 Delta 88, with a 425 and a four barrel. It wasn’t slow, but it was not nearly as quick as Oldsmobile’s entry into the muscle car wars, the 442 (4 bbl carb, 4 speed manual transmission, dual exhausts). Here are a selection of 442s and other assorted Olds cars, including a rare Hurst Olds, the actual pace car for the 1970 Indy 500, and a 455 Rocket V8 powered traditional rod.

"...I've been over to Cars In Depth on many occasions. Barring the whole 3D thing which drives me up the wall (that's a personal thing, though), I like the content, the writing, and the simple formatting. You do a great job over there, and I am impressed."
