But you can’t stop us from dreaming, and when we come down from our imaginary Jay Leno garage, we’ll find something like this next feature sitting in our actual (real life) garage. Who says you need money to have sweet stuff? Find this 1980 Oldsmobile Toronado XSC Grandeur offered for $6,250 in Los Angeles, CA via eBay.
