1960 Oldsmobile commercial

Recommended Posts

No offense to you, 98, but this is only either the first or second Olds vid you've posted I've clicked on. The '70s-80s stuff just doesn't butter my biscuits.

The aspect ratio of the vid is altered, because that profile shot of it looks like it's about 23-feet long, but having owned a '60 Bonneville, I can tell you the entry/exit on the 4-dr hardtops is adequate up front but distressingly poor in the rear. Here tho, it looks like you could slide a rowboat into either portal.

As to seat belts, I'm not in love with them 100% of the time.
Front outer belts weren't required by federal statue until Jan '66 and belt laws are NOT retroactive, so you can cruise your O-60 all day & night with no belts on OR in the car.

That said, I have been planning on front outer belts in my B-59... but then again I may pass on that feature.
