    I just scored a 1969 Olds Toronado W-34. The W-34 package included a high-lift camshaft, specially calibrated transmission, and dual exhaust. It raised the 455's horsepower from 375 to 400. According to the Toronado chapter of the Olds club, only around 20 of these are known to exist. This one is absolutely pristine, with only 24K on the clock and all original, including paint.

    1972Mach1 Just some M.M.O.G. guy.....

    Had to give in and put the retro/winter rolling stock on the beater finally. Made it clear to the end of November. It's a little squirrelly with the 20 year old rock hard pokerchip studs even on dry pavement.

    Jon, I've seen you on the Hellcat site (actually posted on your thread). Did you sell the F8 widebody?

    No, decided to keep it. Sold a different car instead.

    That looks nice. And a 4-speed! The price seems fair, too.

    I told the wife that I put her Cougar up here, and she wanted to know if I had put her other cars up here. I hadn't, so here they are:

    1953 Studebaker street rod with 350 Chevy, vintage air, electric power steering

    2017 Hurst Mustang convertible, the only one built

    Still a pretty cool thread.
    But what other special cars did anyone have owned in the past?
    To me, a very special ‘69 Lemans factory 400” 4 barrel , 4 speed, 373 rear gear. Orbit orange.

    ‘69 GTO.

    ‘74 454 4-speed Chevy Laguna. White, red, swivel buckets. Come to find out only 8 were built with the 454 4-speed. With the original rims and tires cause when bought new, the new owner immediately put cragars and wider tires on it.

    ‘96 Mustang Cobra pos. With the Dohc engine it made zero power down low. Was not fun to drive unless over 4,000 rpm’s.

    oh and a ‘69 GS Stage1 4-speed car that I sold back to the original owners kid. That car had a warranted replacement engine that the original owner insisted that during the warranty work it gets the “upgraded 1970 bigger valve heads”, and it did!

    Just off the top of my head (there's more, but I can't think of them right now):

    '61 F100 unibody 2wd
    '67 F100 2wd 390
    '62 Chevy Shortbox 2wd
    '64 Chevy big back window 2wd
    '78 GMC Jimmy
    5 87-93 5.0 Mustangs, all 5 speeds
    '71 Delta 88 2 door factory with the "W-30" engine
    '71 Olds 98 2 door
    '71 Ranchero 429
    '73 LTD
    '74 Torino
    '78 Cutlass Supreme
    Multiple '85-'97 Yamaha V-maxes. (lots of other bikes, but nothing "special".)

    The '61 Unibody and the '71 Delta 88 are the only ones I wish I still had. And I always want another V-max.
