Fans of Fenneman
The winner of our Great Nerd Showdown was, by quite a wide margin, swoonsome George Fenneman. While we admit to being biased in favor of Robert Q. Lewis, we can certainly see Fenneman's appeal: he's as smooth as Vitalis, suave as Aqua Velva, and slicker than Aaron Slick from Punkin Crick.
For those of you who voted Team Fenneman, here's an added bonus to get your motors running: a 1955 DeSoto ad, where George uses those dreamy, dulcet tones to describe "added inches" and "that taut, surging feel." Have mercy.
