1956 Oldsmobile Olds Super 88 Convertible
Widely acknowledged as the first “rock and roll” song.
The Rocket 88 was highly desired by the hip crowd.
A V8 motor baby, it’s modern design
Black convertible top and the girls don’t mind
Sportin’ with me riding all around town with joy.
The song was first recorded in 1951 in Memphis Tennessee.
