RealRides of WNY #2359  - 1956 Olds

Another beauty from this year’s Olcott Beach Car Show is this 1956 Oldsmobile 88 Holiday Sedan. Some (me) say that style-wise, 1956 was the best year for GM’s four-door hardtops, a body style introduced the year before in the Olds and Buick lineups, and in 1956 in the Chevrolet, Pontiac, and (surprised that it wasn’t the first) Cadillac brands. As far as the Olds lineups go, I’m still trying to figure why there were no station wagons for model years 1951 through 1956. Anybody out there have any idea? This year’s Beach show, like every year, was held in Krull Park in Olcott.
