PostHeaderIcon Oldsmobile 442 Convertible

The Oldsmobile 442, or 4-4-2 as it was advertised and sold in period, was one of the first muscle cars to appear after Pontiac released the Tempest-based GTO. The 1967 model featured a 6.5-liter V-8 that pushed out 350 horsepower but lacked the styling to match its performance figures.

The 442 debuted in September of 1963 for the 1964 model year as the performance trim level of the Cutlass. As a consequence, it was equipped with the biggest engine that GM would allow on a mid-size car at the time, a 5.4-liter V-8 with a four-barrel carburetor that was rated at 310 horsepower. In fact, the 442 nameplate originally pointed out to the car’s setup: its quad-barrel carburetor, four-speed gearbox, and twin-pipe exhaust system.

Oldsmobile’s first muscle car was available as a two-door hardtop, a two-door convertible, and even a four-door sedan. Up until 1967, you could have the 442 trim level on either the F-85 or the Cutlass base. However, for the first generation’s final production year, the 442 was based on the ultimate version of the Cutlass Supreme, further proving the 442’s special status. It became a standalone model when the second generation debuted in 1968.

PostHeaderIcon Jay Leno Reviews James Garner's '72 Cutlass Banshee: Video

Unless you’re a child of the 70s, odds are you’ve never heard of the Rockford Files. It was a TV program featuring the adventures of private investigator Jim Rockford, as played by James Garner. In the show, Garner can be seen performing one of the all-time classic stunt driving maneuvers. It starts with a pinned throttle in reverse, followed by a swing of the nose to orient the car forward, then a grab of a forward gear and the conservation of momentum into glory. Some call it the J-turn, some call it a bootlegger’s turn, but really, it should be called the Rockford.

James Garner is remembered as one of the all-time greatest Hollywood “car guys,” and not just for this one trick of automotive hooliganry. The man was also an avid racer, including several off-road stints in this 1972 Cutlass Banshee.

The car is a 2/3-scale model of the production vehicle, with a shorter wheelbase, tube chassis, and fiberglass body. You could call it a predecessor to the modern-day trophy truck. The engine is mounted where the passenger seat should be for better weight distribution during the occasional flight. According to the owner, you can literally tune the carburetor as you drive down the road. The transmission is an upgraded version of the original Turbo 400. The tachometer is mounted externally on the hood, like the Pontiac GTO.

It’s a unique slice of history, one that’s still raced today. Thankfully, Jay gives it a proper moment in the sun, with a romp on public roads and even some dusty donuts.

PostHeaderIcon Video: Elderly Driver Crashes Through CA Car Wash, Literally

It’s definitely easy to make jokes about elderly drivers when it comes to unintended acceleration, but a recent video gives us a rare look at how terrifying such an incident can be. We hear stories all the time of drivers who mistakenly apply the gas pedal instead of the brake with sometimes lethal consequences, and that seems to be the case with this scary car crash… minus the lethal part, fortunately.

Captured by security cameras, the driver of this Oldsmobile Intrigue can be seen barreling through the Quick Quack Car Wash in Sacramento, CA at a high rate of speed, and a report from ABC News says that he was an elderly driver. As the driver approaches passes through the payment area, it looks like an employee can sense something is amiss as she tries to run after the out-of-control Oldsmobile, but it then suddenly speeds up and narrowly misses hitting an employee who was standing just inside the entrance.

As if it wasn’t scary enough, an additional security camera facing the vacuum area showed that a motorist avoided being collected in this incident by mere seconds. In total, the report estimates that between $60,000 to $100,000 worth of damage were caused by this incident but adds that the car wash was up and running again within days. Fortunately, nobody was injured in the accident, and the driver of the car was able to walk away with only his ego bruised.

Making light of the whole situation, the car wash uploaded the security footage to YouTube dubbing its commercial music over the video.
