Fans of The Simpsons will know The Homer, the car that Homer Simpson designed along with his brother, who happened to be the owner of Powell Motors. This episode (from Season 2) was written as a spoof on the Edsel, which we all know ended sadly. In this episode, Homer designs “The Homer” which brings his brother’s car company to ruin.

In the 50s and 60s the selection was smaller than it is right now, and this was certainly a good thing for the Detroit Big Three.

1941 Cadillac Series 62

It is a recurring theme when you take a look at some of the classic American cars from days gone by, but it is really amazing to see the stylistic changes that are embodied in a single model that was able to stay in production over an extended period of time. The Cadillac Series 62 is one of these vehicles, a mid-size luxury car that made its  debut for the 1941 model year as the successor to the Series 70. It remained in production all the way through to 1964 and its history is broken down into five different distinct generations.
