Default Dealer sold a Toronado

While I worked at my last job, I would occasionally drive past a used car dealer, and amidst the 1990'* and 2000'* they would have closest to the street, there was this 1970'* second-generation Oldsmobile Toronado, same green as my Bonneville. (Wish I could've stopped for a picture, but it was on a busy street.)

Surprising in this day and age that it'd take center stage at a dealership, but judging by the body alone, it was practically in showroom condition.

Well, I was up in that neck of the woods this week, and I noticed that in its place was some ricer Honda. I certainly hope the Toronado went to a good home.

If some new Toronado owner is reading this, welcome to GM Forum.

Nice list of cars, but I am sure all of us could argue against many cars in that list. Guess the word collectible and desirable have very different meanings.

Unfortunately I don't think I have pictures.. Well I know I don't have any... My mom might have some tho, I will ask her when she gets home !!!

I loved the syclone, But I loved my Stepside 454 SS more.. 2 trucks I should have kept but it was at a point in my life where I spent money as fast as I made it ... **** happens when you do that and they were quick cash LOL

Since I'm a bird lover, I'm surprised the 89 Turbo Trans Am and 91-92 Firehawk wasn't on there. What about 96 Impala SS?
