Operation Mustang

66 MustangOperation Mustang: Clearly there are countless different sought after classic American cars and they all carry a unique brand of history. But if you were to conduct a poll and ask classic car aficionados about their top 10 of all time, the Ford Mustang would probably be on everybody’s list.

These cars took America by storm after being introduced at the 1964 World’s Fair in New York and they have been a part of the American landscape ever since. In fact, the Mustang is still going strong and the latest models are absolute head turners.

The Oldsmobile Toronado

When you take a look at the Oldsmobile Toronado, the first fun fact to consider is the name of the vehicle itself. What is a “Toronado?” Is it a city in Spain, or a bullfighting term? Is it the translation of the word “tornado” in Portuguese? Well, the mystery is unveiled here today. The word Toronado actually references nothing at all. Someone at Chevrolet attached the name to a prototype back in 1963, and it was slapped onto the Oldsmobile division’s entry into the personal luxury car market that made its debut for the 1966 model year.
