These are the ones that didn't make it.
The cars here have their stories, unable to be communicatecd with people who visit them today.
Each car and truck was driven to its new home brand new from the dealer, its new owner brimming with pride, the neighbors coming over to admire it and congratulate the owner on their acquisition.
The cars here took people to work, on vacations, to the hospital, to sporting events. Serious conversations took place inside them. They sat faithfully in the driveways and parking lots, waiting to serve.
They were posessed by multiple owners, each transfer shedding a measure of lustre, each owner aging these devoted workhorses more, until the time came when they were no longer needed.
Cast aside, no longer wanted, here they sit, never to move again, their stories untold, their service to their owners forgotten.
Many sketches, drawings, models and mock-ups were made to create what would become iconic, rolling art pieces that competed for the dollars of American consumers.
Everything from the font of the badging that would identify them, to the logo, to the placement of chrome trim was carefully considered.
These cars would be the pride of their creators, celebrated in advertisements, commercials, and auto expositions, where people would flock to see these exciting new designs for the first time.
