The '59. My Dad's all-time favorite car, even though he never owned one.

59 for me although after the 57 I wasn't a fan of any of these.

I like the 58.  The 59 and 60 look cheap compared to the 58.

I find the 1959 external styling to be rather pleasing.

I like the '59, but NOT when compared to the '58.  Love the '58!  As for the '60, I've always thought it was such a let down after a fifties decade of incredible styling.  In fact it's just plain with nothing to get excited about.

I like the styling of the '59 best, the '60 and '58 last by far.  I like Olds a lot up to '57, less so for the next 3 years,  and start again in '61.

I like the '59 the best, the '58 has grown on me over the years, so it is next. The '60 is cool but looks so dull and boring after the style of the previous two.

For me, the 60 and 61 Oldsmobile's were not on my "like list".  Then in 62, WOW!  It was a solid homerun.  Removing the "pointy" fenders on the 61, made the 62 look awesome!

Is it possible for the second twin to be born 1 year and 36 days after the first?  If so, you may be on to something here Steve....I mean Bro.

'59 followed closely by the '58. The '60 is left far behind.

George;  I was ambivalent about the '60 Olds but I loved the '61, 2drht. roof line, grille and tail lights in particular.  Then came the '62 and I was absolutely blown away by it; especially with that gorgeous side trim.  IMHO it is the best looking Olds ever made.  1962 was a home run year for GM styling.
