Rockabilly Car

50’s Style

 

Rockabilly is a style of music that began in the mid-1950’s with the incidental recordings of Elvis Presley, Billy Black, and Scotty Moore at their Memphis recording sessions for Sun Records.  However, rockabilly is about much more than the music that was inspired by these legends fooling around in the studio that day.  Rockabilly is a style, a sub-culture, and an attitude that can still be found today.

Many think of the 1950’s style cars that are still around today as rockabilly cars.  They defined the 1950’s era as much as the style of hair and dress of the men and women that drove them.  Rockabilly cars are everything from Edsels and Corvairs to restored 1950’s Cadillacs.  Where did the ideal rockabilly car become defined?

In a song called “One Piece at a Time,” sang by Johnny Cash, there is a reference to a “psychobilly Cadillac”, referencing a favorite of the rockabilly crowd that Cash had been a part of for a short time in his early career.  The song was a number one hit for Cash in 1976, written by Wayne Kemp.  The rockabilly car referred to here would be an old-time Cadillac from the 1950’s, still a much sought-after car today.

Of course, rockabilly cars aren’t the only form of transportation preferred by these followers of the precursor to modern rock and roll.  The classic Harley Davidson style is another favorite of the rockabilly crowd.  If you can’t get your hands on a classic rockabilly car, don’t worry – a Harley of any type will get you plenty of respect from the rockabilly crowd.

The old Chevys of the 1950’s are still popular among the show car crowd, as are other 50’s classics.  But no one respects a rockabilly car like the rockers who worshiped the vehicles in the past.  A rockabilly car is a piece of art and should be respected as such by all.
