The absolute best creative and beautiful automobiles were made in '58-59. Hands down. They can't make those again today. Nobody is creative enough.
I think this person just likes to hear himself whine and complain boring
Excessive chrome, excessive weight, excessive tail fins and taillights, excessive engines, excessive aircraft-carrier sized trunk lids, excessive fuel used. What a waste.
the ugly pigs are awesome protos I want them all !
Can you define "plethora"? Because I'd hate to think you said these cars had a plethora of options and you didn't even know what a plethora is.
these cars are artwork. the ones today are tastless. too many things to go wrong.
I love them all
The 58 nomad was a beautiful car and 58 El Camino is favorite
I love the '59 Chevy. Some of those older chrome designs were over the top, but in the 60s it seemed like all cars started to look the same. Thenin the 90s everything was a lump-o-clay in a wind tunnel. It seems like there are very few cars that really stand out anymore.
17:10 – thank you for using the word "re todd did", and recognizing it has separate meanings. We can't even type it in comments without Youtube (AKA GOOGLE)'s over reaching authoritarian power hungry freaks deleting the comment.
Great history lesson thank you.
Old cars body of steel new cars sheet metal and plastic. Spend time in car crash test to see what a mockery are new cars.
They were death traps.
58 Chevy rear looked like an owl. I had a 4 door Biscayne with a 235 6 cyl powerglide and loved it! The 59 Chevy was the most gosh awful thing ever conceived by mankind. The 60 was much improved! Nothing was more beautiful than the huge chrome horn ring and deep blue bowtie on my 58 !
Today they look like plain boxes all having same front grill no crome.
I remember the Chrsyler Imperial unbelievable luxurious interior with outside chrome with stylish taillights that you had to touch.
HOW MANY USA CARS NOW KOREA MADE CAR COMPANY OUTSIDE USA BUILD IN USA AMERICA KILLED ITSELFWHAT HAPPEN TO MADE IN USA?🤣😂HOW STUPID WE ARE
GOOD VIDEO ! So happy to announce that I have gained financial freedom by investing in digital currency. Now I know that multi creation of various streams of income is the ideal Principle for financial sustainability.
Got to love those ALL STEEL dashboards. Those sissy airbags weren't even a dream.
All the Technology they didn't want you to see, but my Man was able see it throw a "Chain Link" fence… Cum On Mann…
Summary after watching: they all collectively look stupid and product of boredom. It seems like metal was too cheap back then so they had enough to just put around anywhere. Its great there was a model made with a propeller or a tank's main gun
That red Cadillac was not a Coupe DeVille
Gotta admire human care and craftmanship. Those things solid. New stuff, machine bells, whistles, throwaway
I’ll take two of the Buicks with the “angry headlights” please
2:16 is a fucking amazing photo.
All that real chrome pitted in three years behind repear and it was hard on the environment.
Mustang, best design, worst quality. Loved mine.
I liked the punch pressed grills
If it got hanged in, just pull it back out.
Better looking than most modern cars today.
You are a true master of your craft. Your attention to detail is unsurpassed. NICE WORK ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Unions destroyed America, long time ago. Around the murder
of Kennedy. ?
heap of scrap metal
In the 50’s we had a saying, “ if it doesn’t run chrome it “!
