Why They Call Them 'Pony Cars'

It really shows how the term "pony cars" came to describe these new style of vehicles. Of course, the Mustang name also hints as to where the term originated, but the "pony cars" label was quickly placed on all smaller, sporty vehicles by the public during that era.
In this view, however, I'm inclined to think the Chevys look more like Clydesdales than Impalas next to that pony car.
By the way, I tried to include this photo in the attached photo album, but for some reason the Motortopia program wouldn't allow it there. Maybe it thought there was something wrong with the photo because it had two different "scales" of cars in it.
