Winged Warriors of the NASCAR Circuit
Ask any child between the ages of 12 and 3 who “The King” is and he will immediately direct you to the Disney-Pixar movie “Cars” and a blue 1970 Superbird that is designed to look just like the one driven by Richard Petty. The King is a talking car, voice by Petty himself, and it also wears his racing number, 43. The Cars character was incredibly popular with children who fell in love with the movie and the anthropomorphic cars, and it brought back the love for the Winged Warriors that rocked NASCAR for a few short glory-filled years.
Plymouth & The Great Depression
The history of the automobile industry is intertwined with the history of our country from the period just preceding the turn of the 20th century onward.
Motor vehicles started to become more of a reality and less of a dream during the end of the 1800s, and automobile ownership was brought within reach of ordinary Americans with the introduction of the Ford Model T in 1908.
During the earlier days of automotive manufacturing there were a couple of events that had a big impact on the evolution of the industry.
Of all the classic cars that are out there people who have a specific affection for Plymouth automobiles often gravitate toward the Barracuda.
A lot of people think that the first pony car was the Ford Mustang, and it is true that the class of vehicle was named after the Mustang. However, the Barracuda, which was considered to be a pony car once the term was coined was introduced first. The Plymouth Barracuda was released on April 1 of 1964 which predated the debut of the Ford Mustang by a couple of weeks.
