The '50s saw an interesting time in vehicle design. Most American cars were big, brash and bold. With chrome. Lots of chrome. By the mid-'50s, everything suddenly became very pointy, most notably tail fins.
On the other side of the Atlantic, British motoring loved the understated sports car. Open top two-seaters were the order of the day and not only were they loved in the United Kingdom, many of these cars were actually transported to American and sold.
And further into Europe. Well, the Italians especially were keeping everything beautiful. Every line was pored over in design to make sure it fitted in with the overall look of the car. And they certainly always made beautiful cars in the 1950s.
Continental cars also tended to be smaller, way smaller in some cases. These small cars were fuel efficient, thanks to their very small engines, often only 500cc. They were perfect for driving through the narrow streets of Europe's ancient cities.
In reality, these cars were a fraction of the many available in the 1950s, a decade that saw the world try to get back on its feet after the Second World War.
The question is would you be able to identify some of these vehicles?
