Picking up a lady in this chrome beast was a guaranteed way for a date to end with a happy ending.
Fifties cars are synonymous with crazy styling, big engines and plenty of chrome. A prime example is this 1959 Oldsmobile Super 88 that Jay Leno presents in his latest Garage episode. Half a century ago if you wanted to get laid, this was the car to pick up your date in. Everything about it is huge and loud; from the 315-hp 394 cu.in. (6.5-liter) engine V8 under the massive hood to the ridiculously oversized trunk with its shockingly-styled taillights. As always, the Denim Chin gets into the fine details of his latest build before taking it for a spin.
And the classic Olds looks absolutely epic on the road. No wonder girls would literally drop their panties at the sight of it. You can't say cars like this were the reason for the baby boom, but they were certainly a catalyst.
