Oldsmobile F88

The crown jewel of the museum is this Oldsmobile F88. Now if you are thinking that you have never heard of this car before, there is a good reason. It was a 1954 GM concept car. 4 were built and 2 destroyed by GM when they decided not to take them production. One got out "into the wild", but was destroyed in a fire, and this one rumor has it, was snuck out in crates by the designer. It was bought by Hendricks at the Barrett-Jackson Auto Auction in January of 2005 for 3.2 million dollars. I wonder if he got a warranty....I wonder why GM never asked for it back......I wonder wonder who, oouu who, Who wrote the book of love........Could you consider this a monotone car? Wait, that was 1958.....Sorry, caught myself wandering around my mind again :)

When I saw this, a song started playing in my head, "Don't fall in love, (she's a beauty) one in a million girl. . ." I guess if a car could have a theme song, that would be it. You really showed it off nicely, too.
