Alright, we’re back and let’s get right into it. We’re going to look at a few more American Rides, because one post just isn’t enough for all of the classics. Disclaimer: these are the opinions of the author, of course. This is by no means a total and complete archive of the most American cars (I mean, that’s not really a scientific measure either.)
Chevrolet Bel Air
Let’s start with another absolute classic. Picture the roads in the Atomic Age, classic Americana. Yeah, that beauty with the fins? You’re thinking of the 57 Bel-Ar. For whatever magical reason, something in the air perhaps, everything came together and made The Americana Car.
In the same vein, we’d be remiss if we didn’t talk about another member of the Fin-Fam. The 1959 Cadillac Eldorado was the premier Cadillac, with the biggest fins on the market. A marker of conspicuous consumption for the time, this was beast of comfort, certainly not speed.
Ford F-150 Pick Up
Not a car, but this is another cornerstone of the American auto landscape. The Ford F-150 has been around since 1948 and for over 30 years it has been the best-selling vehicle in the US and Canada. That’s right, this bud is a key North American ride. The vehicle topped the charts of trucks for over 40!
We’re not going to specify, whether it’s the Jeep MB, or the very first Jeep CJ, Jeep is one of the classics of American auto. According to Dwight D. Eisenhower, the Jeep was one of the three main tools that won WWII. Once peace was handled they became classic recreation vehicle, perfect for crawling over America’s vast landscapes.
There are tons more of classic American rides out there, for tons of different qualifications. These have just been a few of ours. Now, with the July 4th holidays firmly behind us we will move on to our more traditional discussion topics including interiors, European rides, and everything in between. We will catch you next time!
