As far as deep and dark automotive secrets go, few were any deeper or darker than Oldsmobile's W-30. It was so secret, in fact, that most of the company's dealers weren't even aware it existed. The W-30 was meant to win races on Sunday and sell Oldsmobiles on Monday. It was the 1960s, and the Free World was fascinated with power and speed. "Speed thrills," became a rallying cry. Young drivers began to demand high-performance machines that could tear up a quarter-mile of dark, country road or the tarmac of the local drag strip.

The look, the rumbling sound emanating from the exhaust and the aura are what set these cars apart from the crowd. Back then, I had never thought Oldsmobiles were particularly attractive until the arrival of the 1960 models.
