When cars had soul


At start of the 60's cars had soul and personality. You could determine what brand ofcar which came by sight of course, but even by the sound of the engine. This is of course because not everybody had a car, but the engines had sound. That sound was different from car brand to car brand. It could even be differences within same brand, regarding the driver.
