Today is the 4th of July. America’s Independence Day. A day of baseball, Apple pie, and FREEDOM!! And what better way to celebrate this occasion than with American cars! Lots of American cars! 55 to be exact.
I constructed this car-flag this morning. While it might not be too accurate, I’d spent a while finding the cars to build it and decided to cap it at this. Every car in the picture is an American car, with brands ranging from Ford to Chevy to Dodge to Jeep to Mercury to even International, Hudson, and Tesla. Expectedly, there’s a lot of Mustangs and Camaros, some Corvettes, a few pickups of various makes and models, but also some unusual ones such as the Tesla Model S and Roadster, the Hudson Hornet, and the Ford Country Squire. The full list of cars used is below.
