The 2017 Dodge Challenger GT Is the First AWD Muscle Car

For the last 50-plus years, muscle cars have been confronted with a basic problem: more power than traction. Thanks to low(ish) curb weights and rear-wheel-drive, even entry-level Camaros, Mustangs, and so forth can be convinced to burn rubber on cue. (We’d consider that a feature, not a bug, but that’s neither here nor there.)

This Gorgeous and Rare 1970 Oldsmobile 4-4-2 W-30 Was Once a Basket Case

The passion Bob Stokes has for cars was formed early. He drove his dad’s 1956 T-bird in high school, and he has owned a diverse array of classic and muscle cars since, from a 1963 Impala to a 1959 Rambler Cross Country station wagon he used as a hauler for his wife and two children. His interest in Oldsmobile muscle cars goes all the way back to 1970, when a friend going into the service needed to sell his 1967 Cutlass 4-4-2 Holiday Coupe. “He didn’t want to put it in storage, and I was in need of a good work car. He sold it to me for $1,200, and I have had the car ever since.”

Andy’s advice: 10 cars to buy while they’re still affordable

It has been an up and down year in the world of auctions with top tier collector cars such as the Jaguar D-type and rare racing Ferrari cars achieving some serious gains while cars that were hot a year ago, think the Ferrari Testarossa of the 1980s and ’90s and early Porsche 911 cars softening a bit. While that has been happening we have seen an upsurge in demand for muscle cars, notably ‘70s and early ’80s Pontiac Trans Ams and the like.

1960s American station wagons such as this '65 Buick, are No. 6 on Andy's better-buy-'em-now list

Use These Paint and Bodywork Steps to Achieve a Show Car Finish

Despite the trend embracing the “don’t care” look of ratty muscle cars, nothing says quality like perfect paint. No, were not talking an exterior blow-over here. We mean paint that is crisp at every edge and blind corner, the kind that makes the vehicle look brand new. Getting there necessitates major disassembly, removing everything extraneous to the bodywork and going for perfection from there. The end result far surpasses the OEM level of detail. Thanks in no small part to today’s paint systems, such as the Axalta products used here, the result is eye-popping looks that dazzle and amaze.

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

Alan Knott

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.
