Originally bought for his partner, in the end Bryan Rasmussen just couldn’t part with this rare Oldsmobile
When Bryan ‘Raz’ Rasmussen purchased this 1957 Oldsmobile Super 88 Holiday Coupe two years ago, he had the best of intentions. He originally bought it for his partner, Sheila. It was to be her new weekend car, something she could drive, something she could enjoy, something she could love. Sheila never quite got to do any of those things, but at least it’s still in the family.
It was only after Raz saw the large, swooping car in person for the first time that plans began to change. “I’ve always loved the shape of a ’57 Chevy, but they are too common for my liking,” says Raz. “I found this car online when I was looking for something for Sheila, but when I went to pick it up, I couldn’t get over how good it looked. It had so many similarities to the Chev but it was still completely different and unique. I could see the huge potential in it.”
Sheila never got her car but at least Raz gained a new project vehicle — one that eventually became one of the coolest cruisers in the country. (more…)
