1972 Ford F-100 pickup

Excellent examples of classic American trucks are all the rage in the collector car market these days. And why not? They’re simple, reliable, and can haul just about anything.

1968 Oldsmobile Toronado

Oldsmobile stepped out onto a limb in 1966 with its Toronado— the company’s first mass-produced front-wheel drive car. But it was stylish, ruggedly built, and featured decent performance from its 425-ci V8 (or 455-ci V8, starting in ’68).
