Icons

Cars that Drove Our Imagination

Icon: A person or object that is revered. Iconic vehicles set new standards in technology,
design, and popularity, inspiring deep feeling and esteem in their adherents.
In some cases, a vehicle becomes iconic for its accessibility, affordability, reliability and
endearment to the masses. The Volkswagen Bug, for example. Certain models are etched in
the public psyche for what they brought to the industry. The Porsche 356, Chevy Corvette, and
the Ford Mustang are such vehicles. Pop culture movies, books, and television also generate
icons. Steve McQueen’s 1968 Mustang from the movie Bullitt and the custom “Captain
America” Harley Davidson Chopper from the movie Easy Rider, for example.
