Oldsmobile - Starfire
The Starfire name was first used by Oldsmobile on a one-of-a-kind dream car that was shown at the 1953 Motorama auto show. Named after a Lockheed jet fighter plane, the original Starfire was a 5 passenger convertible that had a fiberglass body, a 200 horsepower (150 kW) Rocket V8 engine, and a wraparound windshield. The Starfire name was first used on a production car to designate the convertible models of the 98 line for the 1954 through 1956 model years in much the same way that the Holiday name was used to designate hardtop body-styles.

The 1954 through 1956 Oldsmobile 98 Starfire convertibles were the most expensive Oldsmobiles offered during those years. During the 1957 model year, all 98 models were referred to as being "Starfire 98s". The name was dropped from the 98 series beginning with the 1958 model year.
