The sudden bursts of cars as a way to express one’s personality, while being large enough to hold a family defined the 1970’s. Willa and Ollis, had three children in the 1970’s. “I drove an Oldsmobile as it was the most reliable car at the time.” (Brown, Willa) By 1970, the Oldsmobile was known for being one of the most successful cars and was the third most popular car behind Ford and Chevrolet (Oldsmobile 1973-1977).

Most are taxis that are waiting for fares and they remain parked until the car is filled with passengers; you can also hire them by the hour or day. You can choose from a '58 Plymouth Fury with sleek fins, a solid '52 Chevrolet, a stocky yet elegant British Ford Anglia (1936-57), a sporty Nash Rambler, a stodgy De Soto, or a roomy Studebakers to name just a few. Every day is like seeing a classic car show in

In the world, people have many hobbies and interests, being a car enthusiast is one of them. There are many stereotypes and misconceptions against car enthusiasts due to the lack of knowledge non-car enthusiasts have. Being a car enthusiast is not only admiring cars, but also having an interest to do what you want to with your car, such as driving. Whether you want to drag race, race on the track or go off roading, a true car enthusiast sees the beauty in cars whereas other people would just see a normal car. Car enthusiasts find the beauty in cheaper cars where they could mod their car to their desire. Other “normal” people would rather buy a Lamborghini or a Ferrari solemnly because they’re pretty and fast. With cars, you have to customize
I’ve always loved cars, and i’m really picky when it comes to cars too. An example of me being picky is that I am a die hard Dodge kind of person and i hate Ford with a passion. But all the car loving started when i was about five and My cousin and I were playing on a carpet track with my GTR hot wheel car. That was the best toy any kid could ask for at that time and i would pretend I was Paul Walker from the Fast and the Furious movies. This is where I had grasped my love towards GTRs, and Paul Walker would end up crashing each GTR he owned which kinda sucked, because they were all nice cars. But if i got a GTR i would detail to look very sharp, I would get it in a Charcoal gray color with orange Halo lights and tinted back lights and the trim would be orange. I would also add a nice looking GT wing on the back and a hood, and roof scoop on it. I would also end up putting a black slash mark on the left headlight, and of course i would put a NOS symbol either on the back or on the side. My charger would end up being the same color and with orange trim also. I would put a slash mark on the left side and have a ducktail spoiler, and the headlights would be orange halo lights. If I didn’t have enough money I would be stuck with getting the charger, but if I had enough money I would get both because i like riding in style. Everybody has goals daily but I think more about my lifelong goals and how I can reach them starting
The first I ever had was an old model of the brand Toyota. It was color blue and was second-hand so I got it at a cheaper price. For a second-hand car, it was in a really good condition. Although I had to do some repainting since it had some dents and scratches on it. I remember my dad telling me that if I want to earn my first car, I need to work for it. I did some part-time works so that I can earn. My parents of course helped me with purchasing. They shouldered about half of price. My father told me that buying a car is one of the most fulfilling experience I will have in my young life because I can see where my money is going.
German car manufacturer Volkswagen had a revolutionary time in the 1960s. Volkswagen had utilized a clever New York advertisement scheme “Think Small”. In 1960s Volkswagen had completely changed the on how automobile makers marketed their products.
