Pics like these make me wish I was born a generation earlier. I would love to have been teenager or adult back then.

It was a nice trip down memory lane looking at old pictures, this is the only one with a Corvair in it.

Interesting - notice how many OTHER compacts are in ghe early 60's pictures.
Valiant, Lancer, Lark, Falcon, Chevy II, Rambler, VW

The U.S. was just coming out of a recession by 61. Folks were price sensitive and even with gas at 20-25cents a gallon folks wanted less expensive cars to operate.

By the mid 60's the economy was good again and people wanted big engines and the muscle car era was born.

Then by the 70's the "oil embargo" made small cars popular again. Unfortunately Detroit got caught off guard and the Japanese were "in the right place at the right time".

I remember one year I had a BIG Impala wagon company car and the next year I had a Vega - a fun, but very unreliable car. The company was not amused by the Vega problems and dumped them for Japanese cars, which cost the same, but were reliable.

Is that a Javelin to the right of the Corvair? If so, I didn't know gas prices were that low during that time period.
