20: 1963 Oldsmobile Jetfire
It’s hard to believe it now, but at one point Oldsmobile was the definitive automotive brand in the world. Technological advancements were nothing for Oldsmobile to churn out, including the first consumer airbag. However, as time went on, GM let Oldsmobile fall to the wayside and the brand was eventually phased out.
The 1963 Oldsmobile Jetfire changed all that with a swooping design and a powerful engine. This car was released right on the cusp of the muscle car era. What we had here was a fairly unique muscle car that could handle its own when it came to performance. The Jetfire did what GM had hoped and brought an entirely new generation of buyers to the showroom.
