38: 1970 Oldsmobile Toronado

Although you probably couldn’t tell nowadays, there was a time when Oldsmobile was one of the most forward-thinking automotive brands. Oldsmobile brought us the first consumer airbag system and a host of other advances. Their ’70s models were especially forward-thinking as the fuel crisis was going on at the time. The 1970 Toronado is not often characterized as a muscle car but it had just as exciting performance as the rest. The long sloping styling of the car and the two-door design made for a fun machine. Because the Oldsmobile Cutlass is the first car that comes to mind for enthusiasts the Toronado is still affordable.

The Toronado benefits from the vast catalog of GM performance parts, and upgrading to a modern LS engine is not hard to do. When it comes to classic coupes the Toronado is about as unique as you can get.
