SARATOGA SPRINGS – There’s cool. And then there is 50s auto cool.
Two-toned and turquoise cool. Matching fuzzy dice of course. Hand-waxed and ready to cruise cool.
The Saratoga Automobile Museum (SAM) is celebrating the 1950s, a pivotal decade for the American automobile industry. Its new exhibition is open now through October 21. The exhibition will be a way to experience the innovations, design, styling, and culture of the 1950s automobile industry.
The post-World War II era of the 1950s brought consumerism to a new level. America was enthusiastic and happy with an eye on the future. For the American Automobile Industry, competition was stiff between the automakers, and the industry was maturing in an era of technological changes, innovative design, and greater profits. By the end of the 1950s, the industry had moved away from small independent automakers and towards The Big Three: General Motors, Ford, and Chrysler. The 1950s were the pinnacle of American automotive manufacturing and helped shape the United States into a superpower.
