Thesis Statement
  • In the book The Outsiders, cars were a form of
    showing your status in society. Wealthy people,
    such as the Socs, had nice cars. Poor people had
    worse cars (or no cars).

3
Thesis Statement (continued)
  • Cars have been a status symbol throughout
    history, ever since they were first created.

On with the carz!

Cars throughout historyIntroduction
  • In early times, the common form of transportation
    was the horse-drawn carriage.

5
Cars throughout historyThe first cars
  • The first cars were extremely expensive, as they
    were often put together entirely by hand.
  • Only the wealthiest people could afford to buy
    one of these cars. As a result, wealthy people
    had nice cars.

6
Cars throughout historyThe Model T
  • The first mass-produced car was the Model T. It
    was first created in 1908.
  • The price for these cars was less than the
    original cars, yet still expensive.

7
Cars throughout historyAfter the T
  • After the Model T came many new styles of cars.

8
Cars throughout historyNew models
  • Next came more advanced models.
  • Nice cars went to wealthy people, and poor cars
    went to poorer people.

9
Cars today
  • Today there are many models and styles of cars in
    existence.
  • Though more people have them, they still show
    societal status. For example, it costs a lot to
    buy a limousine, so only wealthy people tend to
    have them.

Cars throughout historyConclusion
  • In conclusion, this is a way of showing financial
    status. It has been this way from the beginning
    of modern transportation

The car.
