In the 1940’s, 1950’s and 1960’s, cars were big. Really big. Dashboards were made of metal with just a few soft surfaces, engines had very large cubic inch displacements and you could fit all of your friends comfortably into the car. Everyone was happy. Soaring gas prices and government mileage regulations meant automobile designers had to design cars with fuel efficient engines and make cars lighter and smaller to remove weight. How boring.
We’re celebrating Big American 8 Cylinder Power. Come to The Murphy to view our exhibit featuring Packards, Lincolns, Chryslers and Cadillacs in GIANT proportions. We’ll give you the stats on length, weight and mpg’s which will make you feel a lot better about what you are driving, although not anywhere near as cool or fun.
