Oldsmobile "Make a Date with a Rocket” Emblem 1949 - 1952 - Round Aluminum Sign


1949 - 1952 “Make a Date with a Rocket” Emblem Novelty Round Sign

So how quick was the Rocket 88? Well, it needed around 13 seconds to hit 60 mph and covered the quarter-mile in about 18 seconds with a trap speed of 70 mph (113 kph). Not exactly mind-blowing, but it was enough to turn the 88 into the car to beat on the NASCAR circuit. The 88 won more than half of the races it entered from 1949 to 1951, becoming the first "King of NASCAR." The car's success on the track quickly translated into spectacular sales at the dealership. The 88 enjoyed great success, mostly due to its popularity among ex-military personnel and hot-rodders. The Rocket-powered Olds also inspired the popular 1950s slogan "Make a Date with a Rocket 88", as well as the song "Rocket 88." Recorded by Jackie Brenston and his Delta Cats, who were actually Ike Turner and the Kings of Rhythm, the single reached number-one on the Billboard R&B chart and it's often considered the first rock and roll record.
