But, the most important feature of the 48's was the bench front seat which made necking (and other pursuits) possible while at the drive-in!

I don't remember ever seeing that cartoon about the mutant deer.

Not to mention automatic transmission so the only "stick-shift" getting action was your own. :red:

In the Olds ad, I love the way he pronounces "tah-MAHR-ah", as in "...America awaits the car of tah-MAHR-ah".

How else is it pronounced? 2-MAR-oh like some Nawthern Yankee?

Wow I actually have that Rudolph cartoon! It's on VHS and something I got as a gift back in the 80's. It's resided in the box with the Christmas movie's and DVDs I've amassed over the years. Viewed it just this past Christmas with the kids!

So what I got out of that was "dah - DAH - dah" which seems to fit. :lol:
