ROAD TRIP TO COOLSVILLE: Cars From the 1950s Represent an Incredible Automotive Era in America

ROAD TRIP TO COOLSVILLE: Cars From the 1950s Represent an Incredible Automotive Era in America
2024 SCOTTSDALE AUCTION – 1954 KAISER DARRIN ROADSTER – NO RESERVE

After World War II, the United States saw an unprecedented surge in economic prosperity – and a newfound fascination with cars. The 1950s saw families moving out of the cities and into the suburbs, meaning a vehicle was pretty much a necessity for a commute to work. The automobile also signified freedom for the average American – a chance to hit the open road to explore via the burgeoning highway system (hello, Route 66!). Car culture flourished: drive-in movies, drive-thru restaurants and car clubs popped up everywhere.

This era saw the United States become the world’s largest manufacturer of automobiles – by the end of the 1950s, one in six working Americans were employed either directly or indirectly in the automotive industry. The decade began with some 25 million registered vehicles on the road; by 1958 there were more than 67 million.

American car designers let their imaginations run wild, and the advent of the jet age proved to be a major influence. As a result, Fabulous ’50s cars were resplendent with chrome, tailfins, chrome, wings, chrome, turbines, chrome and afterburner taillights. Did we mention chrome?

Ford, GM and Chrysler – known as the “Big Three” automakers at that time – led the way in automobile production during the 1950s boom. Vehicles forever emblematic of the decade of their creation include Chevrolet’s Bel Air and Corvette, Cadillac’s Eldorado, Ford’s Thunderbird and Fairlane, and Chrysler’s New Yorker. But smaller entities made waves, too – as evidenced by cars like the Kaiser Darrin roadster with its unique pocket doors and DeSoto’s impressive Adventurer – some of which even came with built-in record players.

Highlighted here are just a small sampling of the fantastic cars from the Fabulous ’50s that will be headed across the auction block during the 2024 Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction, January 20-28 at WestWorld. See you there, Daddy-O!

Speed Read: A Fantic Caballero scrambler with vintage style, and more

latest motorcycle news 175 745x497 1 jpg

The latest motorcycle gadgets, classics, and custom bikes.
Deus ex Machina leads this week’s round-up, with a Fantic Caballero scrambler that tips its hat to the Fantic enduros of the 70s. We also profile Beeline’s new motorcycle navigation device, a rare 1990s Harley-Davidson military bike, and a stunning Triumph Trident T150 Gene Romero replica.

Fantic Caballero 500 scrambler by Deus ex Machina Milan
Fantic Caballero 500 by Deus ex Machina Milan With its upright riding position, scrambler styling, and punchy 449 cc single-cylinder engine, it’s a mystery why the Fantic Caballero 500 isn’t more popular. The Italian company started making motorcycles in 1968, including enduros, mini-bikes, and go-karts. The original Caballero was an enduro bike—a 50 cc two-stroke with a bright red tank, yellow number boards, and chunky off-road wheels and tires.
