Sometimes its just two letters that make the car. The Mustang GT, the Cobalt SS, and the Spirit R/T, for example, tacked on a bit more driving involvement with two extra majuscules. In the case of the Oldsmobile Toronado, however, this gets you a back glass that looks like it was constructed by a team of workers who normally do upscale bathroom renovations. Find this 1977 Oldsmobile Toronado XS here for sale in Tempe, AZ for $8,000 via craigslist.
No legendary 455's were available anymore in 1977, instead, the 185hp 403 was subbed in while nobody was paying attention. A vehicle of this status deserves a good running, high compression 455 for which to liquefy the front tires.
