The 1970s is a decade known for many things, and one of them should be cool cars. While we had to deal with fuel shortages, stricter emission standards, and regulations that made some cars die out, there were some seriously fun cars developed in the 1970s. Let’s take a look at these cars and take a ride down the road of nostalgia for a bit of fun.
Can you imagine the drive you’ll have if you find a sunny day, an open road, and some beautiful scenery to enjoy? Now imagine that ride in a supercar that’s built to handle every road with ease while being open to the air with a convertible top that you can put down as you enjoy the drive. If this sounds like the ride you want to take, you might want to consider some of these cars that are the most incredible convertible supercars that have been built to make sure you can enjoy a fantastic ride to wherever you want to go.
If you like to drive, you’ve most likely dreamed of driving a supercar that has a lot of power and an incredible shape that can let you have the fun you want on the road. Taking that fun up a notch would be to have a supercar that allows you to put the top down as a convertible model that makes it much easier for you to experience the drive you’ve been thinking about. Let’s take a look at some of the coolest cars ever made that can be had with a convertible to give you the full experience.
Engineering and development of various aspects of vehicle engines has advanced over time to give us more of what we want on the road. That also means many have gone away.
With the increase in power we can find from smaller engines there are several engines that we admired in the past that are no longer built. Let’s take a moment to admire these engines and remember what they offered us for the vehicle we drove in the past.
When a vehicle is made by a brand that stands for the absolute best in automotive performance you might think that nearly everything built would be kept in some way. We’ve seen evidence of scraps of drawings and napkin ideas that have been kept by those who understood their significance and decided to make sure those early ideas were kept and logged for future display to the world of the sheer brilliance of a person when they began to work on the project they had in mind. Because we’re so enamored with cataloging and tracking historical significance it seems strange that a single example of a car would make its way to a barn.
We love powerful cars. When we discuss cars in general some of the most important figures, at least in our minds, typically include the horsepower, torque, top speed, quarter mile time, time to reach sixty mph and much more to do with the power, speed and performance of the vehicle. Not often do we hold back on a car and ask it to go slower, in fact we are constantly looking for new ways to pull more power out of an engine in order to bring about the best we can get and see just what more power will do. Strange as it might be, some cars just might have too much power for their own good; here are some examples to give you an idea:
One of the most fun parts of looking at a special edition of any car is to learn what changes are being made in order to allow a car to be offered in the limited quantity expected and create a buzz about the car. When that special edition comes from a brand such as Ferrari the attention given is much more than many others would be and certainly the changes that Ferrari makes on a car can be much more aggressive than some others that might just add rebadging and color differences for their special edition vehicles.
