"Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard."

1975 Oldsmobile Toronado. Oldsmobile's "personal luxury coupe" entry on GM's E-body platform. This thing stretches most of eighteen and a half feet between stem and stern.
Front-wheel drive, with a longitudinal 455 c.i.d. V8 (that's 7.5 liters for those of you who live places that have never been to the moon) driving a 3-speed Turbo-Hydramatic transmission via a chain off the output end of the crank.
Notice how much of it hangs past the Subie forester parked behind it... .
