At Jalopnik we're obsessive with automotive culture both old and new, so when we came across this huge photo gallery of vintage automotive Americana from our friends at Yenko, we knew we had to share.

Like most of you, we remember falling in love with cars during our childhood while riding in the back of station wagons on vacations across the U.S. to obscure tourist spots in the middle of no where. We also remember falling in love with cars just by seeing them down on the street. In dealerships, parades, driving down the freeway — it doesn't matter much to us. We love cars just the way they are and this huge collection of vintage photos helps us to fall in love all over again. (Hat Tip To Robert!)
