I'd love to drive this to the Dairy Queen



 Here's another picture/clue


... the Oldsmobile F88 sports car:

It’s  what the Corvette Oldsmobile Division wanted, but never had. This experimental sports car would have been
in direct competition with the Chevrolet Corvette. While debating the matter, GM built three Olds F-88 showcars,
each one slightly different, all with concealed folding tops. It is powered by a 324-cid 'Rocket V8' producing 250 bhp.
Brought out of GM styling in pieces, and owned briefly by financier and
luxury auto magnate, E.L. Cord
(CEO of Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg). One version was gifted to Harley Earl upon his retirement in
December of 1985. The only surviving F-88 was sold at auction in 2005 for $3.2 million.

The XP-20 project, commonly known as F-88 was a pet project of Harley Earl (working wîth him was Bill Mitchell,
Ken Pickering, Zora Duntov etc.). Four cars came out of the project, but only styling order #2265 (this car) survived.
It was sold or given to E.L. Cord (Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg owner) in 1955. Hundreds of internal
GM documents and original blue prints are still wîth this sole survivor. 

Luigi, that was nice - thanks,
