Today’s featured ride is a 1984 Oldsmobile Toronado. The third-generation Toronado gained independent rear suspension, which helped maximize space in a body that had been significantly downsized in 1979. The second generation’s prominent beak was tamed for the 1979–85 cars, but the quad headlights remained, mounted above an oh-so-’80s fascia that featured air intakes tucked into the bumper. Despite these changes, the Toronado retained its characteristic front-wheel-drive setup and longitudinally mounted V-8.
This particular Toronado belongs to David Feehan, who has admired these cars from his teenage years.
