Stephen King Loves Classic Cars

Stephen King Loves Classic Cars

'59 Plymouth Fury

I am huge fan of Stephen King, the man and his books. While I don’t consider myself to be a horror book connoisseur, I am a fan of a well-written book set in the real world (or at least a realistic world). I am also a fan of novelists who are not afraid to show the world what they love. It is obvious that Stephen King has a love of classic cars, because he includes them frequently in his best books.

'65 Ford MustangThe late 1970s were not good for the auto industry. As gas became more expensive and fuel needed to be rationed, automakers had to make major changes. One car that had serious trouble in the 1970s was the Ford Mustang. Many manufacturers had to turn their hotrods into front wheel drive gas sippers, and Ford turned to the unfortunate Mustang II. But, for fans of the Ford Mustang, the worst was still on its way.

The Mustang In Movies

As classic Mustang fans are quite aware, the Ford Mustang is among elite company when you are talking about iconic American motor vehicles.

The impact that the Mustang had when it was first released in April 1964 really cannot be overstated.You have to remember that smaller cars were a relatively new phenomena. The Ford Mustang was actually influenced by the compact car that was carrying the load for Ford at the time that the Mustang was introduced, that being the rather tame Ford Falcon.

The Mustang went on to shatter sales expectations and within 18 months one million of these pony cars had found a home in American garages and driveways.
