In 1959 America expressed it's optimism and dreams of the future in it's automotive designs.  We were entering the space age was in full swing and rockets, jets and fins could be seen everywhere. No car exemplified this era more than the 1959 Cadillac with its sharply angled fins and rocket shaped tail lights. Can you just imagine it's New Years Eve and you are cruisin with the Rat Pack down Las Vegas Blvd headed for a wild night at the Sands to welcome in the decade of the 1960's.

Jets, wings and rockets, were ever present during the post war.  They represented a new age and entry into the now modern world.  Many cars during this period sported chrome hood ornaments that lead the way into the future and jet age.  The iconic hood emblem of the Oldsmobile 88 from 1953 was a prime example.

It was 1959 and the space race was on, and America's imagination turned towards the stars and a brave new world.  Car designers of the day incorporated the mood of the country into the radically new jet-age styling that embodied their designs.  There are a number of cars that have become iconic with their representation of this transitional time. The 1959 Impala, with it's distinctively shaped taillight and sloped rear fender wings, exemplifier's this era in automotive history.

Hideaway headlights and the 169 Z/28 Camero? What could better represent the muscle car era of the late sixties? This classic combination with racing hood stripes just scream fast and sexy.  A collectors item if there ever was one.

The V-12 Ferrari Enzo was destined to be a collectors item.  It was the flagship of the Ferrari line and the namesake of the founder of the company.  Its radical styling set the standard for supercars.

Mid century was the beginning of the modern age. Streamline styling was evident in most every design of the era.  Cars were transitioning from boxy utilitarian tools to personal and sporty reflections of ones personality.
The 56 Bel Air had great appeal to a youth that had one eye on the future and the other on the road ahead.

Like Jaws trolling the freeways, this land shark's fin cut through the air like a knife. The rear fender fins were standard fare for all Cadillacs of the late fifties and sixties   This 1960 Caddy sported a cleaner more angular fin that it's predecessors.

The Porsche 911 shape has endured since 1965.  It has evolved over the years but every model is instantly recognizable as a 911.  The 1998 model was the last year Porsche used the air cooled motor, which to many enthusiasts was an end of an era.  The Turbo model is a highly collectable car, and many purists consider this to be the best looking 911 ever produced.  This was the last model to have what was affectionately know as the whale tail.
