The Ladies Dig Turbo Rocket Fluid: 1962 Oldsmobile Jetfire

The 1962 Olds Jetfire was the first American production car to get a turbocharged V8, and it produced 215 horsepower out of its 215-cubic-inch aluminum V8 (yes, the same engine family that became the Rover V8). Here we see an Olds-drivin' stud getting his lady friend in the mood by stomping on the go pedal and sending the boost gauge into happy territory. Just don't run out of "Turbo Rocket Fluid," which later generations came to know as "water and methanol." Thanks to SOS10 for the tip!
