Wheels in the Grass

TOO MUCH LIPSTICK!! What were they thinking when they painted the bumpers red on this 1956 Oldsmobile Super 88 four-door sedan? Yikes! I spotted it a while back sitting in front of a collision shop in Yorkshire, N.Y., and it has since had a “for sale” sign attached to the window. I don’t know; to me this would be a tough sell — although the rest of the car still looks pretty good. Olds made nearly sixty-thousand of the Super 88 four-door sedans that year. And I’ll bet none of the rest of them have red bumpers.
