With New York City’s annual comic convention just around the corner, we’ve decided to celebrate the intersection of two worlds of hardcore fan-boys – comic books and cars. And what better way to do that than with the brand behind New York City’s ubiquitous taxi — Ford.
Thanks to the first appearance of Superman, Action Comics #1's cover has become one of the most well-known images in the world. But, although often overlooked due to the blue-and-red spandex-wearing superhero, there’s one other star on the cover — what could be a 1937 Ford Sedan. People argue to this day about that iconic car's make and model (cars from the 30's looked a lot alike), but, seeing as Fords ruled the road at that time and that the '37's "hot rod" V8 engine made it the perfect getaway car, I tend to give it to Ford here.
