Rewind: early 1970s traffic jams in U.S. cities

This week’s Rewind article showcases pictures of traffic jams in the United States. The following pictures were taken Chicago, Houston, and Omaha, respectively, in 1972 and 1973.

What car(s) can you identify in these images? What one(s) would you most like to have in your garage today? We’re tempted by one of the Beetles, but ultimately we’d take the light blue Toyota Corona that just merged in Houston.
