Vintage cars from the 1970s included muscle cars that raced famously through streets, representing freedom and revolt. The designs were daring, the engines powerful, and every goose (as rides were called back then) had its own distinctive character.  However, there were far more cars that defined the 1970s than just muscle cars.

To many people, the cars of 1970 were not just ways to travel but symbols of the revolutionary age and an ongoing adventure. Here, we look at the cars that defined the 70s, picking out features that stood out.
