American car culture

The car has been around for a long time.  Right from the beginning, American culture loved their vehicles.

Why do people love the car so much? It seems like people think of their car as family.

But not everyone.
An argument could be, it's a bucket of bolts that don't add up to hill-a-beans in the end.

While that may be true for a good many cars.  That's the fascination of car culture.  Some folks go out and search for old wrecks for the purpose of saving them.  Like a sleuth on the trail - The Mechanical Fossil Hunter!

It's just as fun for them as it is for the brethren who will keep his daily driver clean and original like a trophy. 
whilst having a "no one touches it but the dealer 
mechanic" mindset.

Some simply go for the good ol' rims, tires and exhaust swap.
Some pay for it, some will do anything to get under their car.  Having a “no one else works on it” attitude.
For this culture, that's literately the challenge.  Keep the car running as a daily driver with my own hands.

Some folks don't want to own.  They are charmed by so many cars, their thing is to cycle through them.
Some loyal brand buyers return to their friendly neighborhood dealer every year, trading in for the new model !
This is still an attraction to the automobile.


Modifying cars.  This can be sorcery at times.
The length that some will go modifying their car into a 400hp rocket, then treat it like grad-ma's Sunday driver is just as appealing as others who will do the same outrageous stuff, then thrash it at the racetrack.

Damaging automobiles is always on the list of fun things to do with cars. Just ask the movie industry.

It isn't just them.  Out in the sticks, where folks have land, they are setting up stunts and jumps with their modified junkers.
Or how about trying to get through the deepest mud possible.

These people are some of the unsung geniuses that push the modifying aspect to the point where the car rips in half.
What could be more enthralling for them!

We also have a modern culture that tinkers with computers components.  Because the love of engine modification didn't stop after the analog muscle car years.

While many may not approve of the radical liberties folks take with their mechanical designs, to each his own in car culture.

Check out the crazy mechanical designs on our car coloring book for adults.

classic, vintage or antique cars

The term "classic" is thrown around quite a bit.

It's not always the most accurate description when talking about cars.
Classic gets used interchangeably with just about any automobile that doesn't get made anymore.
Or for simply a great old school design, the observer stating "WOW! That's classic".

In most cases, 20 years is the moniker for "classic".  45 years and older are antique,
vintage cars built between 1919 and 1930. But not everyone agrees. 
There is an overlap between
classics and antiques, depending on who you talk to.

Insurance companies consider cars from 1900s to 1979 as either Antique or Classic.
If manufactured in the 1980s or later, they indemnify as "collector" car.

The Classic Car Club of America has strict descriptions of terms.  Only considering cars between
1915 and 1948 as "classic". Of these cars, the Club claims, only well taken care of, well maintained,
well operating and drivable automobiles will be considered for the hallmark of "classic".

were all the 1960s cars great?

Some folks hold a high regard for the 1960s automotive industry.

That's quite understandable given our nostalgic perception of it.
Visionary engineers scheming to go farther, faster along with forward thinking style comfort and reliability.
Branding wizards tapping into the "family road trip" psyche, evoking American freedom and self-reliance.

Not to mention, most car manufacturers weren't pricing their products above average wage earners.
In the 1960s, even companies seemed on board with everyone achieving the American dream of purchasing
a house and car and still comfortably going on family vacations once or twice a year.

Some folks remember when gas prices were pocket change, hard to believe nowadays.

We've all heard the stories.
Back in the old days, working at the local soda fountain, drive-inn or gas station would allow teenagers
a budget to get their own flat and cool car to go on dates with, of course.  Which also cost money.

Another angle about the 1960s that perhaps is overlooked in today's society, the population didn't have
gobs and gobs of material possessions.  Most lifestyles were about persevering, maintaining, and fixing
what they already acquired.

Most boys knew older folks who could fix just about anything and had the tools to do it, so they followed
in those footsteps, subsequently right into the automotive culture.

Were all the 1960s cars attractive, sturdy and reliable?

Cool Car Coloring Book for Adults!

the worst 1960s cars, according to some.

Many folks look to the1960s for its iconic muscle cars and dazzling V8 power trains, but of course,

the reality with all technology is the downside. 

Although there are critics of these cars on the list.  There are car guys who desire these cars despite
their lack of popularity, performance, or safety.
The obvious reason is some of these cars are inexpensive by today's outrageous "classic car prices"
and they still have classic 1960s styling.
Of course, nostalgia is going to play a huge part in the passion for owning old cars. 

Auto enthusiasts regularly acquire mundane or grandmother models specifically to modify them
to the point where they no longer parallel the original equipment, drivetrain or suspension.

Cool Car Coloring Book for Adults!

This is not a bad to worst list, just an exploration for our car coloring book for adults page. Enjoy! 

  1. 1962 Dodge Dart - The Dart packed enough power to qualify as a muscle car.
    Offered a variety of engine options, including drive trains over 400 horsepower,
    but when it came to styling, the customer voted with their wallet.
    They simply weren't buying into Dodges divergent exterior styling.
    These models only lasted one year. 
  2. 1962 Plymouth Valiant - The Valiant performance was non-existent.
    Chrysler used Inline six-cylinder engines barely making enough power to
    move a vehicle weighing over a ton. Styling for Valiant was considered an abomination
    and simply didn't bring the buying public to the dealerships
    .
  3. 1965 AMC Rambler Marlin - AMC was sure the Marlin's two door midsize luxury
    fastback was going to be considered "Groovy" by the contemporary pop culture of
    the mid-sixties.  One could order the Marlin with 
    327 cu in (5.4 L) 270 hp, 4 barrel carburetor, cruising easily at 80mph was impressive.  There are many enthusiasts that would not
    put this car on a list like this, me included.  But the "pillarless sport roof" styling
    didn't entice buyers, compared to the "Luxury" car competition already on the street.
    Interestingly, AMC claims their own designers disliked the Marlin styling
    and went with a redesign in 1966.
  4. 1961 Plymouth Fury - Even though the Plymouth model showed up at the dealerships
    with big block V-Eight power, some folks could not get past the ridiculous brows
    over the front headlights.  The styling of the roofline, which was supposed to be interpreted
    as a highlight of the Fury stance, was in reality pathetically uncomfortable for back seat occupants.
    This is another case where the buying public didn't understand the styling cues,
    ruminating that it was a mess rather than compelling.

  5. 1960 Imperial Crown Southampton - Chrysler's marque brand, ment to rival the Cadillac
    did nothing of the sort.  
    Despite Chrysler's "Suddenly it's 1960!" marketing ploy to the public,
    behind the scenes were cutting quality on purpose.  Word of mouth on the streets was
    hurting Southampton sales badly.  Not even having Jacqueline Kennedy chauffeured around
    in the Imperial Crown could change the impression on the buying public.
  6. 1964 Mercury Comet Cyclone - Cyclone gets a bad rap, not for its exterior but its performance.
    Some thought the power train choice for the Comet made little sense, given the year it arrived.
    While competition on the street was GTO, Sport Fury, and Galaxie 500, Mercury made the
    erroneous decision releasing a 270 horsepower V-8.  Consequently, Cyclone sat on dealer lots.
    The Comet Cyclone sold less that one quarter the Pontiac GTO did.

  7. 1960 Ford Courier - You may have to be a diehard ford fan to remember the Courier.
    Originally, like the name suggests, that's exactly what it was sold as in the 1950s.
    Ford wanted more of the delivery service market, so the Courier added cargo space for
    1960.  Prior to 1957, the Courier was beautiful.  By the late fifties and certainly the 1960s model,
    Courier's goofy styling kept buyers away from their station wagon delivery vehicle.
  8. 1961 AMC Rambler Ambassador V8 - Even with 3 body styles to choose from and the highly
    sought after family concept of an eight passenger wagon, the Ambassador V8 suffered terrible sales.
    It wasn't the designed of the Ambassador so much.  It was a clucky driving experience compared
    to GM, Dodge, and Ford who were selling comfortable high powered V8s.
    AMC never had the budget their competition did.
  9. 1967 Buick Grand Sport 340 - Buick already had a muscle car doing well, the powerful 400
    Grand Sport.  Buick set their sights on the alternative mid tier V8 performance market
    with the 340 GS.  Tuning down muscle cars was lucrative for some companies like Chrysler.
    The difference was that Chrysler knew the market they were targeting with a mid-tier
    performance car.  Unfortunately Buick's 340 GS didn't.

1880s electric cars?

Not an invention of modern times, the electric car has a history.

Electric cars we all the rage in the1800s.

Robert Anderson develops a "heap" of an electric car in 1832 with his primary cell battery and motor, literally strapped to a horse carriage.  Not much more is written about him or his invention.

William Morrison, a wealthy, educated Scotsman residing in Des Moines, Iowa, is credited for improving battery storage.
This inspired a marketing campaign to build something that would bring attention to his improved battery technology.

Using a local company's horse-drawn buggy for the body and help from a few buddies in his secret laboratory in 1887, the electric car was born.  Hopefully Willy provided the pizza and beer LOL!

The claim is, he had no interest in pursuing or dealing with electric automobiles.  William only wanted to sell his new battery technology.

Cool Car Coloring Book for Adults!

By the mid-1800s, there were many individuals and companies manufacturing electric cars. 

Oliver O. Fritchle 
Thomas Edison 
Flocken Elektrowagen  
Columbia Electric
Detroit Electric 
The Electric Vehicle Company 

This is not an exhaustive list by a stretch!

Long ago, one third of the four-wheeled vehicles on the road were electric.
It was popular with woman because it wasn't a pain in the ass. 

The electric car business was so profitable before the turn of the century, one could
rent the vehicle from a company.
You simply dropped it off at the garage for maintenance when your fair was up.
Also, a few city taxi services used only electric power.

By 1935, the plug is pulled on electric propulsion. 

The electric cars industry found themselves priced out of poor and middle class income brackets.
Which coincidently left zero room to leverage product. 

One reason electric cars were a threat to some industries was because folks across the economic spectrum
had access to incredible battery technology, not the car.

One of the first electric cars built got sold to an individual buyer who reverse engineered the concept
and made it better.  
This was a common practice with inventions in the old days.

Battery technology means home grown power, leading individuals to independent, reliable, efficient,
energy for home, transport, and manufacturing.

Truthfully, the electric stuff is nothing. Lots of old world inventions are quite futuristic!

the first muscle car?

There is an argument to be made, there is no “first muscle car”.

The concept doesn't start in 1964.
The actual word “muscle” was used many times in automobile marketing campaigns throughout the years.

in the 1960s,  Pontiac was no longer involved with the pro-race circuit.
By 1964, the dilemma was, they had to convince customers their products were still exciting.
Instead of Pontiac sticking with their latest slogan “Performance Street Machines”
by accident or design, they used the term “Muscle Car”!
Pontiac realized their marketing campaign for the 1965 GTO!

Muscle Car Mania!

When the Highways were new, Dad's car looked like a rocket ship.

Between 1966 and 1972, America was literally car crazy - “Muscle Car Crazy” to be specific.
52 states had multiple cities hosting drag strip entertainment.
A little place like Massachusetts had six cities dragging cars on the regular.

“Spectator Drags,”
“Run what ya' Brung”
“Original Equipment,”
Auto enthusiasts bought cars with no fancy options and awesome power-trains for weekend “Drag racing.”
American “Road Trip Culture” peaked during this time, a key ingredient for the booming home-grown drag strips.

Renting to local gear heads in the off seasons proved a profitable business model for the drag strips as well.
Van Culture” thrived during the drag racing era.

Drag Racing Events in the 1960s was the hobby for over half the American population.
Fans and crews followed local racers to other cities, battling muscle cars at rival tracks.  What a country!

Cool Car Coloring Book for Adults!

What are spectator drags?

Also referred to as "Run what ya' Brung", the Spectator Drag events are local racetracks,
giving audience members a chance to race one lap 
with their own car against another spectator.

Spectator events, usually held after all scheduled track entertainment concluded for the night.

Sometimes the track would hold grudged matches with the winners.
Although, often spectator races would run long into the night. The track may not have time for extra events.

Typically, there are no prizes, trophies or consolations. Everyone who participates in the event understands
the probability of injury.  There is also the real risk of crashing your car.  Some guys crash on purpose for a laugh,
believe it or not!

Some just like to take home "Braggin' Rights", For a lot of car guys that's a good enough excuse to enter the race.
Also, it's a legal environment, folks can really push an engine to see what it's got. 

Some would answer the question by saying, "watching idiots attempt to race cars".
The more optimistic would disagree. Seeing it as entertainment, thrills, unlikely participants, unexpected crashes,
extreme mechanical failures and amazing cars people pull out of their garage to compete with.

The attributes of the "spectator drags events" accomplishes an unpredictable electrifying outdoor event,
yielding stories that will be repeated over and over at backyard fire pits for generations.

Relive the start line anticipation, roar of the engines, clamor of the crowd, rumble of exhaust, wailing burn outs, explosive crashes, the frenzy of victory and the agony of defeat with the car coloring book for adults!

What is a muscle car?

The term is used to describe a certain era and class of automobile that was sold to the public around
the years 1966 to 1972.
A sleek, powerful, affordable daily driver. A car ready for drag racing right out of the show-room. 

In the early years, mid-size rear-wheel, two doors with over sized v-8 engines didn't have suspensions to
accommodate their own force.  Muscle cars had a tendency to come off as outrageous -
but they were all built for a purpose:  to go fast on a straight trajectory.

In the 1970s, the muscle cars were kept alive in the after-market world.
The big auto makers no longer participated, focusing instead on comfort, technology and gas mileage.
Pollution equipment mandates put an end to the show-room-dragster for a while.

The outrageous muscle car ran out of gas as prices everywhere became outrageous.
During the 1980s, the spirit of the muscle car would rise again - and is still with us today -
but the new “muscle cars” are expensive, technological performance vehicles.

great, great grandpappy's sports car

Bolting aftermarket parts on an engine isn't a new idea. In fact, the automobile companies copped
the “sports car” idea from common folk.  The public was building impressive breakneck cars prior
to performance manufacturers and safety industries.

Farmers were the first “aftermarket” parts makers even before the 1800s.

Country living folk were recovering and re-purposing old world farm equipment, cobbling together or
fabricating many parts themselves.  Although these guys weren't “sport car” builders, they used ingenuity
to maintain equipment along with countless other heavy duty four wheeled contraptions to haul goods into the city.

Farmers would inevitably pass their fabricating knowledge on to city dwellers.
In this regard, automotive flair moved quickly from the country to the city.

City folk took up the country farmers “after market” and turned it into “sports car” building.
Developing fabricated personal transportation became a popular pastime.
For the city folks, there was more tooling and fabricating equipment available for their outrageous
mechanical experiments.

Public driving became a lot less safe for driver, passenger, pedestrian and horse.
Cars were destined to go as fast as possible, regardless of whether frames had the structural integrity
to accommodate the torque, power and speed of the homegrown “aftermarket” aficionado.

Some of these sports car connoisseurs got jobs with crime syndicates as get-away drivers.
The local police didn't have much of a choice but to invest in their own speed shops,
hiring pursuit drivers to keep up with the competition. Cops and robber car chases were not illegal.
Venery was competition and all involved parties were eager to participate.  Laws were passed in due time, obviously.

The gangsters started mocking up get away scenarios with fellow partisan drivers, practicing the craft of handling these outrageously powered machines. These “rundowns” became races as time went on.

Males of all ages and occupations were “aftermarket” auto enthusiast long before the sports car industry
got into the game.
