Photographer's Note

Todays three uploads will finish my coverage of Wheatons Vintage Rides event of Aug. 16 2019. The main entry shows a 1966 Oldsmobile Toronado, a car that I thought was very elegant when I saw advertisements for it in American magazines that my dad used to get.

The Oldsmobile Toronado is a personal luxury car manufactured and marketed by the Oldsmobile division of General Motors from 1966 to 1992 over four generations. The Toronado was noted for its transaxle version of GM's Turbo-Hydramatic transmission, making it the first U.S.-produced front-wheel drive automobile since the demise of the Cord in 1937. The Toronado placed third in the 1966 European Car of the Year competition and won the 1966 Motor Trend Car of the Year award in the U.S. Firestone designed an 8.85" x 15" tire especially for the Toronado called the TFD (Toronado-Front-Drive) tire. It had a stiffer sidewall than normal, and the tread and stylishly thin white pin-stripe were also unique. (From Wikipedia.)
