1956 Oldsmobile Super 88 Holiday Hardtop Sedan

Note: The following story was excerpted from the December 2011 issue of Collectible Automobile magazine

By Don Sikora II

It’s hard to believe that the car on these pages is original from the tires up. This 1956 Oldsmobile Super 88 Holiday four-door hardtop was purchased by an elderly lady in Kentucky and used by her housekeeper for shopping. A nephew inherited the car, but didn’t drive it—although he did start the engine occasionally. The nephew sold the Olds to a collector of original cars who later sold it to current owner Jimmy Blackburn of Texarkana, Texas.

Los Angeles Auto ShowAlthough it’s hardly “new” — it’s been known about for some time — the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show marks the first U.S. public appearance for the trendsetting Porsche Taycan all-electric midsize sedan.

The 2020 Nissan Sentra kicks off the car’s eighth generation; it’s about two inches lower and two inches wider than the previous-gen model, and it gets bolder styling, a more-powerful engine, and new technology features.

Ever since the tenth-generation Civic’s debut as a 2016 model, Honda has stayed busy rolling out new versions and fine tuning the Civic lineup’s styling and ergonomic details. Coupe and hatchback body styles followed shortly after the ’16 Civic sedan’s launch, sporty Si models (and the racetrack-ready Type R hatchback) followed for 2017, and a freshening for 2019 included an improved infotainment system and other welcome updates.
