1970 Oldsmobile 442 W-30 – Never Bested!

Oldsmobile hit its pinnacle of performance in 1970 with its 442 W-30. It was the hottest muscle car that Oldsmobile ever produced. Never again would Oldsmobile (now defunct) ever produce a performance car that would match the 1970 442 W-30’s sheer brute performance or its true muscle car mystique.

  1. A friend of mine had a 70 442 just like the one in the last 2 minutes of this video. Black with gold stripes. He bought it in 79 so it was a typical 9 year old “sort of” maintained” typical car but it was “stock” as far as we he knew and still had quite a bit of jam to it. I still can’t remember what happened to that car I believe he traded it in on the then “new” mazda RX7 which his brother was driving back home from a trip 100 miles inland and on the way back he “claims” a porcupine was in his lane and at a speed on “he claimed’ 100 moh on a slight “bend” he went airbourne off the concrete barrier and into the river.

Using aluminum foil to clean pitted chrome ... See MoreSee Less

Try it with tin foil and coca cola. Use diet Coke so you don't get all sticky and attract ants. Rinse the coke off and rub it with a good wax.

That trick is old as I am LOL

I use that also, but my friend told me about this and for some reason it fills in quite a few of the pits

Good to know

but anyway everything remains scratched, it needs a new chrome plating

Actually it's called Burnishing

I have used , SOS Pads 👍

Works good on wheels

I had three Oldsmobiles: 1954 Olds Super 88 with a 324 Rocket engine with a four speed hydramatic transmision; A 1964 Olds 98 with a 394 Rocket engine and a three speed Hydramatic transmission and a 1970 Delta 88 with a 350 Rocket engine and a three speed Hydramatic transmision. I worked for GM Hydramatic (now called Powertrain) for thirty one years and retired from GM in 2006. We had a museum in Hydramatic plant and saw all the Hydramatic transmissions that GM used in their vehicles. We also made transmisions for fifteen foreign makes including Rolls Royce, Ford, Jeep, Checker, Nash, Hudson, Volvo (at one time), Lamburguini, Studebaker, Jaguar and a short list of others. There is now a museum in Ypsilanti Michigan that features some of these vehicles and features the various Hydramatic transmissions that were used in these vehicles.

It can actually go for more than that

That has style, what a car. Love it!

Awesome!

The sheer size of my beloved 55 Olds rocket 88, saved my life from a combined 100 mph head on impact, back in1975

Sweet Ride

What a magnificent car

Gorgeous

My grandfather always bought Super 88s. This one's a beauty.

Now cars all look alike and made out of plastic.

God please let me win the lotto so I can buy this car thanks

Clean car

How much does he want for it?

Needs a little motor work but last ride

Let’s see the top operate down and up.

That's my style new paint job bling it up yo

But need rear fender skirt!

Timing seems a bit off

That's when they built cars. Not a bunch of plastic. Today's cars, one touch of the "bumper" and you end up painting the entire car to match. Very nice Olds. A real car.
