A highly original 1970 Oldsmobile 442 W-30 4-speed convertible, will hit the auction ring in January during Russo and Steele’s 16th annual Scottsdale sale.
Three decades ago, my collection of Oldsmobile performance cars graced the cover of several editions of Muscle Car Review magazine.
The Oldsmobile answer to the Musclecar craze that began in 1964, was the F-85/Cutlass “4-4-2” mid-sized model.
The Pick of the Day has a strong presence despite its small size
