Car Classes from the 1960s
Today’s automotive lingo includes car classes like exotic, luxury, compact, and sporty – to name a few. Even though most people can name at least one car that would fit into each of these modern category, these categories have not always been. The 1960s was the first decade to see a wide variety of different cars and the categories from the 1960 were quite different than the ones used today. In the 1960s, drivers could pick from pony cars, muscle cars, economy cars, and executive cars.

The Cars of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
In the 1980s, there were very few movies that were better than the ones by John Hughes and many people believe that the best one was Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. If you haven’t seen it, the gem starred Matthew Broderick as the title character who just wants to enjoy a sunny day away from school. Bueller knows that he needs his friends to really enjoy the day, so he makes arrangements with Cameron Frye, played by Alan Ruck, and Sloane Peterson, played by Mia Sara. The trio ends up together and has the best day ever, while his archnemesis, Principal Ed Rooney (Jeffrey Jones) works hard to prove that Bueller is skipping class. The antics of the kids, the principal, and Bueller’s sister, played by Jennifer Grey, are filled with many memorable automotive moments.
What to Name Your Car
It is true that cars come with names. Corvette, Miata, Mustang, ES300, Prius, i3, to name a few. But, when you really get to know your car, there is nothing wrong with giving your car its very own name. You know your car better than anyone else, from its check-engine light that never turns off (even after repairs), to the perfect level to lower the windows when driving on the highway, to its favorite type of gas. If you have been wanting to name your car, but you have not had the right inspiration, here are a few ideas:
Cars in The Godfather
There are a few movies that continue have a cult following: Star Wars, Harry Potter, and The Godfather. Since this is a blog about cars, you can safely figure out that this blog will be about The Godfather. Not the people. Or the plot. Or the fans. But, the cars. The beautiful cars that made their way into this life-changing three-part film. These are a few of the best:
First introduced in 1971, the Alfa Romeo 2000 GTV was an exciting 2-door coupe which had a great European quality that set it apart from other sports cars of its day. This was a model which teenagers and car enthusiasts alike could appreciate, and indeed, many still do. To make this model stand out from other Alfa Romeo models, the front grille added an exciting element to the car. Horizontal chrome bars gleamed on the grille, and the Alfa heart outline was displayed prominently in the middle. This grille would eventually become standard on the other models as well, but its appearance on the 2000 GTV made the model even more unique from other Alfa Romeo models. Below is a more comprehensive overview of other features in the 1973 Alfa Romeo 2000 GTV.
There are few entities that have made as strong of an impact on the automotive landscape as Italian automaker Alfa Romeo. The company was founded as “ALFA” in 1910, short for Anomina Lombardo Fabbrica Automobili. In 1915 Nicola Romeo bought the company and the Alfa Romeo name was born. Alfa Romeo quickly rose to prominence as one of the top makers of European racing cars in the early 1900s. Legendary race car driver and Ferrari founder Enzo Ferrari got his start racing for Alfa Romeo during the 1920s, and enjoyed success as the manager of their racing team before founding Ferrari.
