Independence Day 2018: Archetypical Americans


Independence Day 2018: Archetypical American
We thought the 4th of July was the right time to ask you this question: what do you consider to be the archetypical American car? We’re talking strictly PostWarClassic here so please don’t think T-Fords or Teslas, let’s stick to 1945-1975.

But to give you some support we’ll walk along what we believe to be the basic ingredients for the exemplary American automobile. First, it should be made in the US, there can be no misunderstandings about that. Then, we think it needs to be large and have sufficient engine capacity to blow away all European and Asian four-wheelers. Last but not least it should be known to the world as goes for other motoring icons such as the London black cab, the revving red Ferrari or the autobahn cruising Mercedes-Benz.

So… come up with your patriotic suggestions from muscle cars to stepside pick-ups and from fin-tailed convertibles to hot rods. We want to hear from you!

AC Cobra but ofcourse only a original one.

Good one. Americans love some British heritage too!

That's why I love the AC Ace with the Bristol engine almost as much :-)
