Other Fun Stuff
Identify This Car-We did thanks to YOU!
And finally, with many thanks, we’d like to thank both Allison Sullivan and Cordell Atkins for helping us to correctly identify the vehicle we spoke about in the presentation. I believe they both watched us via the RootsTech recorded video.
It’s correctly identified as a 1949 Oldsmobile Rocket 88. The Rocket was so powerful for its time that it was widely considered the first muscle car in America (Wikipedia). For those of you who are race fans, it won 6 of 9 late division NASCAR races in 1949 and an additional 30 over the next 2 years.
The Rocket 88 was so popular it even had its own song recorded by Jackie Brenston & His Delta Cats (Ike Turner). The song was covered by more artists. In the spirit of our talk, Allison provided fun bits for use in a family Facebook group which make identifying this car even more interesting to kids. These are PERFECT little tidbits to help engage everyone, not just the kids. Here they are in case you’re interested:
- These cars didn’t yet have seatbelts-not invented yet.
- Notice the dash was HARD metal back in the day. Glove boxes were about half the size of modern ones too.
- You probably already know the triangular window visible on the passenger door could tilt in for a shot of air (helpful before the invention of adding air conditioning in cars.)
A BIG thanks again to Allison & Cordell for their help!!!
Also a BIG thank you to RootsTech for choosing us to be a stage presenter and live streamed!
Thank you all once again for all your support and for your love of finding ways to bring family closer together. Kelli & Jamie
