1957 - 1960 Oldsmobile Rocket Emblem Long Sleeve T-Shirt
By the mid-1950s, American automobile manufacturers had recovered from the war a decade earlier and civilian life had returned to normal. Exciting new automobile design and innovations were constantly being introduced that kept its appearance fresh and modern. The original engine was to have been marketed as "Kettering Power" after chief engineer Charles Kettering, but company policy prohibited the use of his name. Instead, influenced by the Space Race between the United States and the USSR, the legendary Rocket was born. Few car brands embraced the forward-looking jet age design language better than Oldsmobile. Its ever-evolving hood ornaments of the ’50s played up the marketing surrounding its OHV Rocket V-8 powerplant. With rocket fins and swept wings like early ’50s fighter jets, these sculptures made a bold statement.The engine proved so popular, the division's 88 models were popularly called Rocket 88s. Oldsmobile Rocket engines were powerful, reliable and fast. Oldsmobile was way ahead of its competitor and somehow it was a precursor to the factory muscle cars of a decade later, where large and potent engines were shoe-horned into small packages. It enjoyed great success, mostly due to its popularity among ex-military personnel and hot-rodders.
