TBT: People Posing with Their Cars in the 1970s. Will We Ever Be As Cool?

Getting a picture with your car is a time honored tradition, but I don’t think we’ll ever top the cool kids in the ’70s who struck a pose with their muscle cars. The cars of the time were as flamboyant as the people who drove them. Big hair, big tires, loud engines and even louder colors. This was the pinnacle of posing next to your ride.

Today’s cars just don’t stand a chance. I mean, are we going to look back in 40 years and think the plastic 2010 Mustang is as cool as that all metal beast from 1970 up above? You be the judge:
