The Twenty Most Significant Automobiles that Influenced American Culture






Hi folks -- I had a nice lunch with fellow tennis player and businessman Steve Sunshine yesterday. Steve is great about bringing me back to reality, and away from the esoteric study of the past. As a result of that conversation, I have constructed a list of the 20 most significant automobiles that influenced American Culture from the beginning of the Twentieth Century to the present. If you have any additions to this list, or want to suggest other candidates for inclusion, contact me. I will follow with a write-up on each of these vehicles.

2. Ford Model T, 1908-1927
3. Ford 1932 Modified "Little Deuce Coupe"
4. Duesenberg SJ and SSJ
5. Jeep
6. Ford Mercury, 1949, chopped and customized
7. Oldsmobile Rocket 88, 1950
