Today, the roads of any major city in the United States are covered in a variety of cars. Styles range from small, nimble European sports cars to angular and classy American sedans. The exotic and the mundane mingle together in traffic, as do the new and the old. Comparing our classic cars with their modern counterparts can be quite interesting.
Perhaps the most apparent difference between older designs and contemporary styles is size. Simply put, our modern cars seem enormous next to cars of ages past. Take, for example, the venerable Ford Mustang. A Mustang is not an uncommon sight on our highways today, and it wasn’t back in 1967, either. However, the cars couldn’t be more different. The newer Mustang is a full 6 inches longer, 6 inches wider, and 4 inches taller. Most astoundingly, the newer models can be up to 1,500 pounds heavier!
So, how exactly did our cars get so much bigger? See it here!
