Hemmings Gift Guide Cover Car: 1950 Oldsmobile 88

For the annual California Car Cover Hemmings Gift Guide catalog, we featured a very cool 1950 Oldsmobile 88 on the front cover. This vehicle belongs to one of our local customers and we were thrilled to have this Rocket on our catalog.

As the sun started to set, we prepared for our holiday themed photo shoot.The Olds has a lot of interesting details. Though the standard interior is basic, the dashboard and its knobs are uniquely Oldsmobile.
