Where are they now?



  1. Had eight. I was raised in a Ford family. One of my uncles said, "If Ford Motor Company don't make it, I don't need it." When we got married, my wife had a '68 Cutlass. I never looked back until the General stopped making them. We had our '95 for eighteen years because we couldn't get another one. Sometimes we wondered why we kept doing it but they just fit. More than a Chevy but less plush than a Buick. An edge of performance tradition for me. I wish I'd had one of those 49's or 50's.

  2. "Der Bingle sometimes stuttered a bit when singing"

    Come away with me, Lucille
    In my merry Oldsmobile
    Down the road of life we fly
    Automo-bub-bub-bubbling, you and I

    To the church we'll swiftly steal
    Then our wedding bells are gonna peal
    You can go as far as you like with me
    In my merry Oldsmobile.

    1. "Rocket 88", Ike Turner and his Kings of Rhythm or maybe Jackie Brenston and his Delta Cats depending. Same personnel.

  3. That's a beautiful show room. Modern looking, not over powering. Not like today. Just way too much hype.
