If I'm not mistaken this was  very unique as it was actually a FWD drivetrain.

Very nice shape. I always think its like a 1970s version of cord had they been around at that time. This and a 1971 Buick Riviera Boat tail I would be happy.

The early Toronado, Riviera and Grand Prix were the best designs to come out of GM in the 1960s. I remember seeing them when they first came out and even though I was a dedicated Mopar nut I wanted at least one of each. Still do.

That's a great shot, Michael!  My favorite U.S. car remains the first-year Studebaker Avanti, but the first-year Oldsmobile Toronado places second.  What really caught my eye, interior-wise, was the drum speedometer (apologies for the lousy over-lit photograph) as it was the first one I'd ever seen.  Subsequent generations of this car looked like crap by comparison:  a typical Detroit phenomenon, wherein corporate executives go all stupid a few years after an excellent car's debut; e.g., Chevrolet Corvette, Ford Thunderbird, Pontiac Fiero.

I drove one just like that one many years ago. It was my first time driving a front wheel drive car. Also as well as a tilt steering wheel it had a telescopic steering wheek. It was way cool. :)

My father used to have a 1977 version of this. I'd love to have that car. Just not the fuel bill.

This is the first car I feel in love with...a neighbor had one and I was so ga-ga over it he said as soon as I could drive I could have it. Well...I think I was 10 when he said it. But my love for classics started here!
