Jay Leno’s 1966 Olds Toronado


Here’s a couple of photos of Jay Leno’s 1966 Oldsmobile Toronado I took while visiting his studios that some of you might enjoy…

Originally a front-wheel drive powered by a 7-liter generating 385 HP, Jay stepped up the game by transforming his into a 1,070 horsepower real-wheel drive rocket ship, sitting on a modified C5 Corvette chassis.

Among this group of free-spirited high school students from 1972 Long Beach, California, include a future doctor, CPA, film maker, felon, college professor, bank vice president, school teacher, master stylist, and an organic farmer.

Photographer was Mable Martin, mother of Janet and Jerry (and the unofficial mom of everyone else in this photo).  Photo taken in El Dorado Park Estates (at 7911 Cramer Street) in Long Beach, California.
