Code Name “Panther”
The Ford Mustang had an extraordinary impact on the automotive industry after its release in April of 1964.
As you might expect, the other major automobile manufacturers immediately got to work on their versions of a pony car so that they could garner their share of this burgeoning new market.
In 1965 rumors began to circulate about the Chevrolet division of General Motors developing a competitor under the code name “Panther”.
From Old to New: The Mustang and The Camaro
How many things can you name that have the ability to go from young to old? That would seem to be a dream come true as we fight age, wrinkles, weight-gain and hair loss. This dream has become a reality for two major car companies for the 2012 production year: Ford and Chevrolet.
7 of the most popular classic cars
Before buying or selling a classic car, an important factor to consider is its popularity for a number of reasons. Popularity could indicate the odds of selling the car if that is the intention- certainly it is easier to sell something that is in demand. At the same time, however, when buying a classic car, a popular car can make it difficult to find parts, and prices typically reflect that. Indeed, it can be much more expensive to repair a popular classic car. Aside from buying and selling, though, it’s just plain interesting to learn about some of the most popular cars. Here’s a list of 7 of the most popular classic cars. Drum roll, please!
Transformers and the Iconic Cars
You might think that the Transformers vehicles are limited to the hot yellow Chevy Camaro, the big semi truck cab, the Hummer, and the Pontiac Solstice. Those who are new to the world of Transformers are often surprised to find out that there are several different versions of the characters that change from recognizable vehicles to powerful robots. These are a few of the most iconic vehicles in the Transformer universe:
Animated Characters Selling Automobiles Over the Years
Car commercials and animated characters have gone hand-in-hand since car commercials hit the small screen. From Snoopy and the Peanuts Gang to modern anime, animated characters are useful tools for selling cars of all makes and models. These are a few of the more memorable cartoon characters and the cars they sold:
Disney Characters and 1955 Nash Rambler: Back in the mid-century, Disney characters played big roles in big commercials. Jiminy Cricket actually sang a version of his iconic “When You Wish Upon a Star” song for the Nash Rambler. Pegleg Pete, the mean cat, also was featured in a spot for Nash.
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 Muscle Car and Pony Car
The Best Cars Used as Police Cars
For many years, the cars that have been used as police cars have been large sedans. In most communities it was common to see Dodge Diplomats in the 1980s and today it is common to see Ford Crown Victorias. While most communities have similar cars, there are some places that have stepped out of the large sedan model and moved into sports cars and other unconventional police car models. These are a few of the coolest:
Chevy Delray: Typefaces Designed to Engage Buyers
When auto manufacturers designed new cars, they had to imagine what the car would look like on the outside, the inside, and under the hood. Cars are not released to the public in a willy-nilly fashion; they have to be tested for aerodynamics, fuel economy, and consumer desire. People love their cars because they see themselves in the style of the car. So, when manufacturers design the name, they do so by considering who they think will drive the car and what appeals to the potential drivers. This stylistic choice shows up in the typefaces that are used on the name plate for the car.
Pontiac Trans AM – Muscle Cars Make the Movies
Most movies are loved for two reasons: actors who put their all into their roles and stories that plunge into our souls while thoroughly stirring our emotions. Every now and then, there are movies that captivate us for other reasons, like high tech special effects and mind blowing comedic timing. However, there are those occasional movies that suck us in, not for the story or the actors, special effects or comedy, but because they have supremely cool cars.
Top 15 Hot Rods
For nearly as long as cars have been around, enthusiasts have been souping them up and turning them into speedy roadsters. With such a long history, choosing the top 15 hotrods is no easy task. These stand-outs, however, are worthy of the title.
- ‘37 Lincoln Zephyr. For cool styling and appeal, the Zephyr cannot be beat.
- ‘67 Camaro. This early Camaro surely earns a spot in the top 15 hotrods of all time for its speed and popularity.
- ’32 Ford 3-window coupe. Made famous by American Grafitti, this Ford is surely the most copied hotrod.
