The British Invasion of 1963-64 wasn’t just about The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Herman’s Hermits and Lulu. It was also about Carnaby Street fashions worn by a young woman named Lesley Lawson, AKA Twiggy. The hats and skirts worn by Twiggy swept across the American landscape as quickly as the Fab Four’s popularity. The British Invasion was also about sports cars. In the years following WWII, vets began bringing home MG TD and A roadsters, Triumphs and Austin Healy, Bug-eyed Sprites. When Jaguar introduced the E-Type, marketed as the XKE in the states and a certain British Secret Agent introduced us to Aston Martin’s fabulous DB5, many young American men began to see all true sports cars as being British. Soon, Austin Mini Coopers joined the rush to American roads, giving America a taste for mini cars that helped open the doors for Fiat and Alfa Romeo to start making a dent in US auto buying as well. By the end of the decade, Japan had joined in on the invasion too. Detroit’s monopoly on American auto buying tastes was over.
