When it comes to the history of the automobile, the first notch in the timeline starts with Henry Ford. Since he opened the Ford Motor Company in 1902, the world has seen more makes and brands of different automobiles than one person could ever imagine. From producing vehicles for the public, to helping with military equipment, the Ford Motor Company has seen it all. .
The Chevrolet Camaro has been produced through five generations (1967-2002) (2010-present). Originally designated as a pony car, some versions also were classified as muscle cars and sports cars. #LoryLockwoodArt@camaro_worldwide@chevrolet
decided to take a trip down memory lane and cycle my history of cars owned. 1.) 1994 Saturn SC-2, 5-speed. bought it from my uncle for $1500 in 2002. the following summer I spent about that same amount on music (receiver, subs, amp), tint, and a custom cat-back with a magnaflow muffler. it lasted til the winter of 2004 when I seized the motor. 2.) 1996 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme. I paid $4500 in 2004 for, at the time, the only car I wanted. I put the music in it from the Saturn and went darker with my tint. This car lasted me until 2007 when the transmission didn’t want to shift properly any longer. I sold it to a local junk yard for $600. 3.) 1998 Chevrolet Malibu. I was given this car by my father who had taken it away from my grandmother after it sat for about a year plus on wet pine needles. I spent money on a new alternator and a few other things. when it was time for an oil change, the fine folks at Midas didnt feel comfortable sending me home in it, let alone changing the oil. The suspension was completely rotted away from the body. I had the car for about 5 weeks. 4.) 2007 Hyundai Sonata. It was late 2007 and I was frustrated about my two 9 year old GM cars dying and I missed my manual transmission. so I wanted something reliable and new. This car did fine in New England weather and for the 10 years and 115k miles that I owned it I only needed to replace a clutch solenoid. Which was covered under warranty. I just recently said goodbye about 2 weeks ago. 5.) 2018 Hyundai Elantra Sport. It was time to replace my humdrum sedan with something more fun and better to look at and with tech that I desired. I fell in love with the Elantra Sport about a year ago when I read about it’s addition to the Elantra line-up. It’s my first 6-speed and I couldn’t be happier. #carhistory

With the F154 V6 ferrari engine twinturbo charged producing 505 hp and a 440 lb/torque.. With the grip and handling of a slammed ferrari and the looks of a fucking piece of art 🏎🏎 I couldn't expect anything less from Alfa Romeo and Ferrari . Both teams that have dominated the early stages of car racing if not the creator of the latter and are dominating even a decade after . From mille miglia to F1 from enzo ferrari driving for Alfa Romeo to him tuning the latter and starting to call it after his last name... and yes ! It is faster then your mustang and yes it is smaller then your mustang and yes it lasts longer then your mustang and yes it has better interior and better material quality then your fucking mustang 😂😂 #carhistory#carporn#carart#alfisti#alfista#donottakemewrong#ilovesubie#butshit

Gioacchino Colombo was an Italian automotive engineer who caught the attention of Enzo Ferrari. In 1946 Colombo was invited by Ferrari to a meeting. So many of the bridges in Italy had been destroyed in the war they agreed to meet at a point mid way between Maranello and Turin. It took three days for each of them to reach the meeting point, and the V12 engine, for use in the new Ferrari marque's racing and road cars, designed on a table napkin came about.⠀
At the Ferrari: Under the Skin exhibition, you can see rare, hand-drawn sketches by Colombo, such as this one of the first Ferrari car, the 125 S, created in 1945. Although Colombo was an engineer and not a car stylist, he couldn't resist including the bodywork and nonchalant driver in this illustrations. Can you spot the driver's foot?

9. Lamborghini Urraco
With the Urraco, Ferruccio Lamborghini intended to build a more economical sports car which comes in the same price bracket as the Porsche. A new 8-cylinder engine is designed for the engine, launched on the market first with a 2.5 liter displacement and later (in 1974) with 3 liters, while a 2-liter V8 was also proposed for the Italian market. Initially Lamborghini planned an annual production of 2,000 vehicles but, starting from 1972, only 780 Urracco, of which 520 of the P 250 version, 194 of the P 300 model and 66 P 200 for Italy were sold in ten years.
Lamborghini Urraco (translated as "little bull") made its official debut at the 1970 Turin Auto Show. It was a 2+2 coupe but rather than being a supercar, it was created as a competitor for models like Ferrari Dino and Maserati Merak.

The first Corvette coupé – the Sting Ray – was introduced in 1963. Dramatic changes in refinement and style made this car more competitive with European sports cars of the time. #LoryLockwoodArt@chevrolet
8. Lamborghini Jarama
Nowadays, Lamborghini is best known for its hyper-performance sports machines. Forty years ago, though, the company also had a strong reputation for more spacious GTs – cars such as the Jarama.
The quirky, dramatically styled four-seater Espada formed the basis of a rapidly launched new model, soon to be called the ‘Jarama’ – another in the famous sequence of bullfighting-related names in Lamborghini lore. Using the Espada as a basis, newly appointed chief engineer Paolo Stanzini designed the chassis around a shortened version of the four-seater’s, with Bertone (where Marcello Gandini was working at the time) penning the bodywork.
Top speed: 260.7 kmh (162mph)
