The 1942 Oldsmobile B-44 – A Car for the Duration: Automotive styling is always a matter of personal taste. Suffice to say that the redesigned nose of the 1942 Olds was unconventional, to say the least. Ad copy pronounced the new model “Power-Styled Like the B-19″ and “Better Looking, Better Lasting, Better Built Than Any Olds in 44 Years.” Stop by The Old Motor and let us know what you think of the styling and as a bonus see a 1942 Olds commercial @

Part of this popularity could no doubt had be attributed to Eugene “Bob” Gregorie’s influence on the stylists who penned this design. See and learn more all about this popular car @

This 1941 Chevy is getting a good going over on the lube rack at Dueck-Nicoll Motors located at 1305 West Broadway in Vancouver, B.C. While regular car maintenance is always important, it became critical during the war years when no one knew when civilian car production would resume. The owner of this coupé was quite fortunate to have purchased a car that was built in the year before the assembly lines shut down. He stood a much better chance of getting it through the crisis without any major repairs than others who had to nurse older models along.

Selling Steel with Style, Part IV: Some grilles and grins today, both pre-war and post, in more of those factory press release photos that we so enjoy. This photo apparently shows Vera West a Hollywood costume designer. We assume she was responsible for the form fitting gown the model posing with the car was wearing. You can see four more photos in todays post along with over 40 interesting pages of photos of women and cars @
