It's a TIE for me. Not fond of either color combo though. Now if you were to ask me which
Pontiac vs. which Oldsmobile for the same two years. I'd walk right by the Pontiac's in a rush to get to the Oldsmobile's.

And for those that would wonder (probably not many), I would choose 55, 56, 57 Oldsmobile's over ANY AND ALL cars of 1957 from any of the Big Three automakers.

With one slight declaration, I do think the 56 Cadillac is the best looking and styled car from any of the Big Three during the 1950's.

LOL, aren't you glad you wondered? :)

The '55, much cleaner-looking to my eye. Also greatly prefer that color vs. the '57. (EOM) by Barry Levittan #39655.2
Like 'em both, John, but the '57 Starchief has a slight edge. Thanks. (EOM) by Terry Daly #39655.3
The '57, but I'm not wild about the color shown. (EOM) by Brian Cox #39655.4
55, 57 and 56 - I like them all equally so it would be a tie (EOM) by John Roberts #39655.5
57 for performance (EOM) by George Burgess #39655.6

'57 all the way. It and the '58 are tied for my favorite of the fifties. (EOM) by Michael Rodriguez #39655.8
1957 (not a great color combo). The 1955 looks outdated esp with the suspenders on the hood. (EOM) by Tim Kubiak #39655.9
1957. IMO this year is when Pontiac started out of their styling slump. (EOM) by Ed Glorius #39655.10
57 please (EOM) by Bruce Parsons #39655.11
Tie for today! (EOM) by Randy Portwood #39655.12
Love both but the refined '55 gets my pick. It looks like TFM issue. (EOM) by John Bono #39655.13
the 57 for an edge in performance (EOM) by Ron Dietrich #39655.14
I am not crazy about either one. I will take a pass. (EOM) by Gary Rockwood #39655.15
