Used in the sense of self-propelled land vehicles, cars has been around since the 1800s, but the car's breakthrough as a social phenomenon first came during the 1900s.

The first cars were too expensive and maintenance intensive for the car to be generally accepted. With the mass production on an assembly line that started in 1913 by the Model T,  the American Henry Ford made the car to everybody's heritage.

Volvo Amazon
I'm Alfred and I'm a Volvo Amazon. I was borned in Sweden 1961 and got my first owner family there, 2 adults and 4 kids! The gave me my name Alfred. I've kept that name throug the years.None of my new owners know about that name,but the name gave me my soul.

If you don't beleive that things can have a soul you should try to give some of your things a name. Take a chair, bike, your PC, anything. Give it a name. And voila the thing comes to live!

My current owner is a lone man in his late 60's with a true love for old cars. This love is my luck and why I'm still alive. Most of my sisters and brothers went to the graveyard years ago.

Have a nice life!

I'm Mickey, an Italian car from 1936.

A good thing about my design is that there is no room for backseat drivers. Just two front seats.

Writing makes me tired. I'm too old to have an intense communication and have to take a nap now. See you another time. Maybe in Itally.

Best regards

With its mature properties and low price Topolino was a great success and was made in just over 110 000 cars.
