In an attempt to strengthened its base amongst the competition in the "low-priced" cars market segment, Chrysler decided to develop Plymouth as an everyday-use vehicle. The brand was launched in 1928, but its entry also felt slightly awkward with the realization that Chrysler’s choice of a cheap car was priced higher than its competitors.

Classic Muscle Cars: 1965 Shelby Mustang GT350 Vs 1968 Chevrolet Corvette L88
In 1964, the Ford Mustang 'pony' car swept the United States, selling two million units in its first two years of production. Despite its athletic two-door design, most of its foundations came from more conventional Ford saloon vehicles, with the straight sixes being the most common engines. Carroll Shelby, the famed Le Mans 24 Hours winner and creator of the AC Cobra, updated the cars, painted in Wimbledon White with blue stripes and the sill panels. The Mustang GT-350 was equipped with a side-exiting exhaust system, upgraded brakes, suspension, and a spare wheel put where the rear seat should have been, making it suitable for sports car racing.

A Look Back At The 1971 Chevy Corvette LS6
1971 was an exciting year for Corvette as the changes on the new car mainly occurred under the skin. The cosmetic changes to the vehicle were fairly negligible, as it was carried over from 1970. The team at Chevrolet spent a lot of time and money perfecting the driving feel of the Corvette, and in the process, they neglected the exterior of the car, which is a crucial aspect of any car. It was one of the last few Corvettes that had the headlights flush with the body, along with the neat chrome bumpers.
