1932-38 Terraplane: Hudson's Low-Priced Land-Flyer8
With production down 81 percent in two years, a desperate Hudson battled the Depression with a brash newcomer, the '32 Essex Terraplane. It undercut Ford's V-8 by $35 and boasted the best power-to-weight ratio of any production car in the world. Arch Brown relates its early success and eventual decline.

1960 Chevrolet Corvette Roadster24
"'60 CORVETTE . . . more than ever, the pure definition of a sports car." So boasted Chevrolet, and rightly so. A purist could order a no-nonsense, ultra-high-performance 'Vette simply by adding the 315-bhp fuel-injected V-8 and close-ratio four speed to the order form-and by deleting most everything else.
1949-51 Ford: "A Ford in Your Future . .. With a Future Built In"28
In 1946, Ford Motor Company was hemorrhaging about $10 million per month. Clearly, the firm's future would depend on its first all-new postwar Ford. The '49 debuted with modern suspension, improved V-8, beautiful slab-sided styling-and a host of quality control problems. Tim Howley tells why.

1971 Continental Mark III50
Fresh from his successful Mustang launch, Lee Iacocca was ready to take on the upcoming '67 Cadillac Eldorado. Work thus began on a personal-luxury Lincoln, the Mark III. Enthusiasts weren't impressed when it bowed in 1968, but the public loved it, and by 1971 Mark III was selling nose-to-nose with Eldorado.
1955-56 Dodge La Femme: "By Appointment to Her Majesty-The American Woman"      54
Show cars of the Fifties often boasted features and styling targeted to the femine sensibility. Women responded, which encouraged Dodge to bring out a production car-the La Femme-designed specifically for "Her Royal Majesty." It bombed. Tony Lindsey explains why the American woman wasn't impressed.
