RealRides of WNY - 1955 Oldsmobile 88

Saw this 1955 Oldmobile 88 Holiday coupe last summer in Newfane on my way to the Olcott Beach Car Show. Hard to tell from this example, but in 1955 the 88 was at the bottom of the Olds lineup. Holiday was Olds-speak for their pillarless models. And here’s a bit of Olds trivia for you: after the 1950 models, Oldsmobile didn’t offer a station wagon again until the 1957s came out. Not sure what their thinking was. (Note the gold ’69 parked in front of the ’55 — possibly a 4-4-2.)
