2012 Oldsmobile Toronado Concept ?

I know, I know it has to be the most unrealistic concepts, but combining the styling of a 66' toro and either a camaro concept or a ford mustang sounds interesting to say the least. Please reply and add your thoughts.

A Future Toro Sounds promising, but the Original '67 Camaro was designed on it's own, where as the '66 Toro was somewhat based off of the '66 Riviera's design structure(Firewall to deck lid).... Oddly enough design wise, the New 2010 Production Camaro Concept is somewhat Structurally Closer to the Toronado/Riviera/Eldorado than it is to the Original Camaro.... 2010 Camaro '66 Toro '67 Camaro Notice the Toro Trademark Pronounced Wheel Openings on the '10 Camaro, something that clearly wasn't on the Gen I Camaro's.... The Toro's Sportier Roof C-pillar is also noticable on the '10 Camaro, where as the Gen I's was much bulkier looking... Also the '10 Rear window to Decklid area is more of the Toro's Fastback design, rather than the Gen I's over staggered..... Hmmmm Looks like a Toro/Rivi/Eldo is in the New Camaro just waiting to Pop Out!!! Although if you are going to attempts Toro's "Step Out In Front" Styling, Front Wheel Drive is more than Natural for it! Personally what I love about my Fullsize '66, is the fact it has Gentleman's Styling, and 385Bhp to the Wrong Wheels!!!

Thanks dragon for the info- And yes the styling of 1960's toronados is quite breathtaking. I should know, since my grandfather collected toronados up until 1972. Since he passed away in 2002, my father and I have the job of upkeeping most of them. This is a fun job, and I have grown attached to the futuristic styling.

You are Very Lucky to have had such a Grandfather, but For the Longest time, I was always a snob for '66's Only, but then the rest of them just grew on me like a Fungus! LOL!!

Rivs/toros have always been extremely unique in their styling thru the yesrs.
