Americas hunger for vehicles of bicicleta plegable value continues unabated. Long fed up with copycat, dessert cutter, uninspiring types, people are demanding and getting cars that are, truth be to...
Described, retro cars are vehicles that take their design cues from cars built a generation or two ago. No, these vehicles arent carbon copies of earlier models, relatively each retro car borrows much of their search from earlier models.
While the retro market is dominated by American automakers, the Volkswagen New Beetle was one of many first cars to reach back because it went forward. Predicated on the VW Golf system, the circular shaped New Beetle hearkens back once again to the flower daughter or son time with its present rendition of the peoples car. Luckily, VW had the presence of mind to add its popular flower holder in with the dash, to evoke memory of the earlier type.
The retro market was pushed by ford forward using its release of the Thunderbird in 2002. Borrowing greatly from early sixties era TBirds, the car has had mixed success as Ford sold a really limited quantity of the model for a few years and then stopped it after the 2005 model year, citing poor income. In 2004, Ford introduced a version of the Mustang, based on the 67 Mustang fastback. Unlike the TBird, the Mustang has been a huge success and Ford can scarcely match production. No term in case a retro Pinto is being prepared by FoMoCo.
Chrysler got in the retro craze having its release of the bicicletas plegable 2000 PT Cruiser. Based on 1950s era panel automobiles, the PT Cruiser sits on the now defunct Neon system, but sales have been strong for Chrysler. As an 09 product the Dodge Challenger, yet another Chrysler solution, is the car the majority are waiting to see when and if it debuts. Funding cues from the 71 design is the main fun of the car: move sales will be certainly helped by a hemi engine coupled with a fantastic interior. For the record, the current Dodge Charger isnt retro it has four doors but I'm mentioning it because it is one cool car!
Chevrolet went retro with the SSR, a truck centered on 1950s period pick ups. Word has it that the slow selling SSR hi, $42K for THAT thing is on its last legs. As this new for 2006 design got its design cues from the 49 Suburban fortunately, the HHR [Heritage High Roof] could keep Chevy in the retro business. The PT Cruiser would be said by some!
Are we likely to see more retro bicicleta de paseo vehicles as time goes on? Maybe, but most likely not a Caddy replete with fins or a Chevy Vega. Americas love with old types is strong, but selective, and the automakers must certanly be certain that people want a particular retro car before putting it in to production. Oh, in addition, the 09 Chevy Camaro principle is one hot looking car!
