Variety makes the car world go round and a lot can be said about a person by the kind of car they drive. It would be boring if we all had to drive the same kind of car, kind of like eating vanilla ice cream without ever trying orange sherbet.
Let’s start with the Classic or American Muscle Cars. Cars from the 1950’s, 60’s, 70 are and even the 80’s. They just don’t make cars like these any more. Take the Chevy Impala’s and Bel Air’s for instance. This old school classic is coveted among the low rider community. Adorned with lots of chrome and amazing paint jobs these cars are customized to be works of art. Then you have the Chevelle. Who doesn’t love that classic body style? Whether original or pro touring, they are a blast to drive. Can’t forget the Mopar Guys. Dodge Chargers, Cuda’s and Challengers, which became famous from TV shows like the Dukes of Hazard and the movie Bullet. Not to be overlooked is the Ford Mustang, which was also featured in the iconic movie Bullet driven by Steve McQueen and then again in Gone in 60 seconds driven by Nicholas Cage.
Moving onto the Tuners or Japanese cars, these have become very popular with the younger generation. Most would know these cars from the Fast and Furious movie series, which Paul Walker starred in. Paul drove an Acura and Toyota Supra, which set the world on fire for tuners. Some other noted standouts are the Subaru WRX, Mitsubishi Evo, Acura NSX and Mazda RX7. Young people love to modify these cars to their own personalized taste and in the process create a ride that is very unique.
Porsche people, I would have to give them their own designated space in the car culture. They like to keep their cars original for the most part and not any make modifications to them. Porsche’s have been known to keep their value and the older air cooled Porsche’s are serious collector cars. Then on the other end of the spectrum you have RAUH-Welt BEGRIFF and Singer who have taken customizing Porsche’s to another level. Known to many as the best sports car ever made, Porsche has created a timeless design that can easily be recognized anywhere in the world.
Ferrari probably best known for it’s racing heritage and celebrity status among athletes, is another car that is not usually modified. People have been known to do wild wraps instead of changing the paint, but engines are left to factory spec.
Lamborghini everyone knows it from the popping wild sound of the exhaust and growling engines. Made in Italy known as the Raging Bull Lamborghini definitely lives up to its name.
Some other cool exotic dream cars to that have made their mark are the Aston Martin, McLaren, Bugatti, Pagani, and Koenigsegg just to name a few. And on the luxury side of the exotic market you can’t forget Bentley, Rolls Royce and Maybach.
There are so many car brands to talk about, I could go on for days, but this blog is about the car’s you love. Share your car story and let us read about the car’s you love.
