1949 Oldsmobile Rocket 88 Futuramic  04/19/2013 : This is just like the first car my Dad bought me. I didn't even have a drivers licence at the time. Mine was burgundy & fast (for those days).
The one below is Red even though a few of the pictures look as if it is burgundy due to the sensor in my point & shoot camera not being able to adjust to changing light at when looking at the car from different directions. 
It out ran all of my friends cars & their Dad's cars including Ronnie's brothers 1957 Chevy
The 1949 Oldsmobile 88 was an image leader for Oldsmobile. It was one of the best performing automobiles thanks to its relatively small size, light weight and advanced overhead-valve high-compression V8 engine originally designed for the larger C-bodied and more luxurious 98 series but it also replaced the straight-8 on the smaller B-bodied 78, creating what was considered the predecessor of muscle cars of the 1960s.
Introduced in 1949, the full-size Oldsmobile 88 was produced until 1999 and became the top-selling line for twenty-four years
Produced in Wentzville, Missouri, and both Flint and Lake Orion, Michigan
The 88 which was considered to be the Grandaddy of muscle cars of the 1960s, it was first introduced in 1949
The Eighty Eight inspired a popular song 'Rocket 88' and a popular 1950's slogan, 'Make a Date with a Rocket 88'
Though designed independently of Cadillac's larger new 1949 V-8, the Rocket, too, was an efficient lightweight engine with great tuning potential. Even with mild 7.25:1 compression, this 303-cubic-incher initially delivered 135 horsepower, giving the 88 a 22.5:1 power-to-weight ratio -- outstanding for the day. With that, the 88 brought to thousands of buyers the kind of performance once reserved for high-priced cars -- or home-built hot rods.
