Following solid sales and critical success for the Buick Riviera, General Motors came out with a groundbreaking design for its next “personal-luxury” car.
I worked at Clark Oldsmobile in West Palm Beach, Florida, right after graduating high school in 1978. This (formerly) beautiful but still rare and unusual Oldsmobile Toronado came in for service and oil changes.
For the 1966 model year, Oldsmobile rolled out a relatively revolutionary car — a full-size car pulled around by its front wheels rather than pushed around by those at the rear.
