Most 1930s cars had four-wheel hydraulic brakes. Low-pressure balloon tires took the place of hard-riding high-pressure tires. During the 1930's most cars were also equipped with heaters and radios. At this time cars also began to take on a smoother shape, more aerodynamic in design, hence offering less wind resistance.
Because of WWII, many changes had to be made. Shortages in materials like aluminum, zinc and copper forced carmakers to go back to cast-iron and steel. However, the cars still got bigger and more luxurious. The styling of a 1940's car is unmistakable from the other years!
1950s cars were some of the most classic, powerful and unsafe cars ever driven. New designs and the beginnings of aerodynamic styling and higher horsepower engines made for some of the most popular cars of the century.
Thus begins the muscle car era! Born were the Chevelles, Camaros, Mustangs, Chargers, Challengers, and much more. Big horsepower in light weight cars meant for some great drag racing and some really fun street cars.
The 1970s saw changes in styling that made for some of the best looking cars of all time. Later 70s cars saw the beginnings of emission regulations which unfortunately reduced engine horsepower but did make a huge improvement for the environment.
