The History of Automobiles

Many babies were created
In the backseat of a car
Ford GM Chrysler    All knew this
Why they never installed
A condom machine in their automobiles   a mystery

Ford GM Chrysler
Shouted to the rooftops
To the hills
Neck in a Saratoga
Pet in a Chev
Make out in a Mustang

  1. Walter Chrysler founded the Chrysler Corporation in 1925 to compete in the luxury car model. In 1939 it introduced the Saratoga, its most expensive full-size 8-cylinder model. But in 1946 it became the firm’s least expensive 8-cylinder. However, in 1953 it was renamed the New Yorker. The brand was reintroduced in 1957 as a mid-priced automobile as part of Virgil Exner’s “Forward Look,” which substituted engineer-fashioned cars by designer-fashioned ones that featured large fins in back; they were marketed under the slogan, “Suddenly, it’s 1960!” Unfortunately, the model was canceled in 1960 (except in Canada).
    A less luxurious but more durable model was the “Chevy.” After General Motors founder William C. Durant was ousted, he teamed up with race-car driver Louis Chevrolet to form the Chevrolet Motor Car Company in 1911, then used it to acquire a controlling stake in General Motors itself via a 1918 reverse merger, and Chevrolet became a separate division. He was ousted again in 1919, and Alfred Sloan concentrated on making the Chevrolet the best-selling car in the US, a goal that was achieved in 1929. The basic Chevrolet small-block V8 design has remained in continuous production since its debut in 1955, longer than any other mass-produced engine in the world, and Chevrolet dominated the American market in the 1950s and 1960s; in 1963 10% of all cars sold in the US were Chevies.
    Henry Ford founded the Ford Motor Company in 1903 and introduced the large-scale manufacturing of cars and large-scale management of an industrial workforce using elaborately engineered manufacturing sequences typified by moving assembly lines; typically, each worker performs one simple operation. Using these methods he introduced the Model T, the 1st affordable automobile in 1908. Under the supervision of general managed Lee Iacocca, John Najjar and Phillip T. Clark designed the 2-seater Mustang I prototype in 1961. This was followed by the 1963 4-seater Mustang II prototype. The 1965 Mustang was introduced as an affordable sporty coupe in 1964 and became the firm’s most successful launch since the Model A, which replaced the Model T in 1927.
    These vehicles fueled the imaginations of adolescent and post-adolescent males in the 1950s and 1960s, during the peak of the drive-in movies’ popularity, when they gained a reputation as “passion pits.” (The 1st one was opened in 1933 in New Jersey.) In the 1930s the term “making out” (in the sense of “succeeding”) attained a sexual connotation. When performed in a car it is called “parking.” Necking is a term for heavy kissing of the neck; petting is sexually stimulating caressing and touching of a woman’s breasts or clitoris or a man’s penis. These terms generally do not refer to penetrative sexual intercourse, though they mean different things to different age groups in different parts of the US.
