The history Channel have premiered a new three episode miniseries entitled ‘The Cars That Made America’ on Sunday, August 13 2017 at 8 p.m, hosted by Dale Earnhardt Jr. Each two-hour episode looks in detail at vehicles that change the American automotive landscape with the main people who influenced each car.

Such icons such as Henry Ford, the Dodge Bros and Walter Chrysler are highlighted with archive footage and great close-up looks at each vehicle. We are obviously interested in the muscle/pony car sections, but the interesting thing is how muscle/pony cars were a natural progression from what came before, driven by the wants and needs of automotive fans. Those vehicles influencing and impacting what came after.


The icons of the muscle/pony car times are covered such as the 1964½ Ford Mustang, Chevrolet Corvair, Shelby Cobra and the Pontiac GTO. If you want a quick overview of all these vehicles, you can check out this link on the History Channel website.

It’s enough to say that this short series is definitely worth checking out for any automotive fan if you like American vehicles or not.

    Too bad they didn’t have an editor that knew cars. Sad when they are talking about a chevy with a ford motor and its a Mercury, then they talk Delorean and show him driving a 4 door buick, not a pontiac tempest or anything close to what he was working on.

      With all car doc., I guess they have to move with what the research guys come up with. It may fill in the gaps for some people.

      I thought the same thing, Ford motor in a Chevy? really? Although I think it was a 1953 Lincoln, not a Mercury.
