The Oldsmobile reminds me of a special order Super 88 of 1957 by
a pharmacist in the drugstore where I was working. He ordered a 2-tone with orchid pink over black. One day an Olds in just those colors pulled up out front, and we ran to get him. You see, the Olds had a doubled chrome strip in the rear side quadrant, and this one had a reflective red stripe in the center of that chrome. It glared against the pink! The pharmacist's eyes widened, and he headed for the telephone. A few weeks later, his Olds arrived. The stripe was there, but it was black, just like the lower color. The pink was an orchid pink, not the calm pink that seems to be that on the BRK Olds. Good memories!
