Special Feels: 1986 Oldsmobile Toronado Brougham

The Oldsmobile corporate slogan in early 1986 was "There's a special feel in an Oldsmobile"...which is ironic because that "special feel" wasn't necessarily a good thing...but the corporate goons at Olds changed it in late 1986 to "Oldsmobile Quality. Feel it!"...also...funny in an ironic sorta way...but I have to admit that this Toronado has a certain charm to the entire hearing aide beige package...from the hidden headlights to the odd proportions of the truncated rear window..it's almost nostalgic.  Find this 1986 Oldsmobile Toronado Brougham here on eBay bidding for $4150 with a few hours to go, located in Palm Harbor, FL.

  1. Worth it for the center console alone! So many toys to play with plus a horseshoe shifter. Awesome. The next driver gets to push it past the 40K mile mark. All the money, but find another.

    Definitely the cleanest (and the only?) Toronado still living, unless an abandoned Olds dealership has one stuffed in a basement with the plastic still on it. I can't remember the last time I saw one of these cars, but it must be years.

    The problem is, do you drive it and enjoy it? I think this is one of those that you garage and use sparingly until it gets close to 50K miles, then sell. Probably break even.
