The Toron­ado ef­fect

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

It was with nostal­gia that I read Myth

Buster about the Oldsmo­bile Toron­ado ( Clas­sic Car Weekly, 15 March). As a boy I lived over the fields from MIRA and one of their engi­neers lived next door. One day he brought one of these fab­u­lous beasts home.

It was as­ton­ish­ing, in a world of Hill­man Minxes, A40s, Jaguars or Hum­bers if you were for­tu­nate, or even, if you were dar­ing, a Ford Zephyr MkIII. The en­gi­neer­ing de­tails were as­tound­ing by Euro­pean stan­dards, and its pres­ence was mytho­log­i­cal in­deed. I’m not sure that I have re­cov­ered, even yet!
