YAK Car Pic of the Day

’60 Olds Super 88, Ramsomville, N.Y.

Dig those fender skirts, side pipes, and spinner hubcaps; not to mention the scalloped paint job and dummy spotlight. Looks like one of my old AMT model kits with all the trimmings, but it’s an actual 1960 Oldsmobile Super 88 Holiday Scenicoupe, parked in a Ransomville driveway. According to the book Cars of the Sizzling ’60s, they drove some 1960 Oldsmobiles on the old television show Hawaiian Eye, which starred Robert Conrad, Connie Stevens, Anthony Eisely, and — one of my favorite tv names, Poncie Ponce who played cab driver Kim.
