"The Experimental Division"
The postwar Oldsmobiles have finally come of age as collector cars. The road was surprisingly long; Oldsmobile has always been the "experimental di-vision" of General Motors, the most progressive American car, ahead of its time with automatic transmissions, wraparound windshields and the first -popular-priced" car with a modern V-8 en-gine. Yet it is only recently that the glamour and appeal of the Oldsmobile has come into the collec-tor spotlight. The trusted Buyer's Guide series recognizes the Oldsmobile postwar cars. More than fifty models are profiled, from the 1946 Custom Cruiser con-vertible to the recent Pace Car replicas, with long looks at the blue-chip Rocket 88 and Toronado, and longing looks at the red-hot musclecars where 4-4-2 added up to more than ten. All are rated by the now-traditional five-star investment system, but few one- or two-star cars are included; this Buyer's Guide concentrates on the true greats—and the possible future collector discoveries.
Richard Langworth is more than just an expert car reviewer. He is also a creative wordsmith, blending history with criticism and anecdotes to make this a readable, comprehensive catalog, fol-lowing in the path of his Illustrated Cadillac Buy-er's Guide. This book is handy for helping you buy (or sell) an Oldsmobile, or simply for dreaming your way through the pages.
