A 1967 OLDSMOBILE TORONADO NOW SHARED WITH OUR SON...
Here are some pics of a beautiful story...Our son Bertrand has been in love with the '67 Toronado we owned when he was 7 and he HAD to possess a "clone" of it. In 2006, he found one in Long Island, NY, that was much like ours except ours had a vinyl top. We traveled with a trailer to bring it to Québec and spent 4 mos renovating it back to (near) perfection. Now that our 1960 Super 88 has found a new home in Melbourne, Australia, we will share the Toronado with our son from now on...
so we can pursue our adventures in the hobby we love... at least to our 90s, God willing !

THE LAST, BUT NOT THE LEAST...
 
This rare 1960 Oldsmobile Super 88 convertible - much like the 1960 Indianapolis 500 mile race Pace Car- was acquired in september 2014 from a Brantford, Ontario, couple who owned it for more than 25 years. The 4200 lbs -and more than 18 feet- ragtop was equiped with a 394 CI & 325 HP high compression 8 cylinder engine, a 4 speed Jetaway Hydramatic Drive transmission, power steering, power brakes, power windows, and (AM) radio. The "Merry" Oldsmobile has been sold and reached it's new owners in Melbourne, Australia, just before the 2017-2018 holidays.
