Since the engineering of the horseless carriage was possible, cars weren’t just machines used to travel. They became a luxury item that was much more than getting from point A to B. Their statuses in societies across the world exemplify the divides but also bring people together, in the transportative sense, and also in the sheer love of cars.

Like the interior of the vehicle engine, society also has many parts and gears that interlock. Across the century since Fords T-100 first made its way out of a blueprint and onto a road, the entire world has embraced the technology that brings people closer, adjust the means of products closer to sources of capital, and transports products and services to drive economies upwards through the decades.

But practicality isn’t the only important aspect of a car. The car means freedom, independence, and wind in your face exhilaration. From an artistic standpoint, the design and soft lines, the sweeping curves of a well-wrought vehicle have a significant beauty that brings the buyer to delight. Yet a poorly designed boffo lemon can bring a driver to despair. People name their cars, they deliver children in their cars; they love in their cars. The automotive passion is high, and below, to the visual delight of collectors and car lovers everywhere are some of the more beautiful vehicles ever made, a true sight to enjoy.
