Can I ask why there are 30's and 40's cars, and also 70's cars?
Or is it something like Quantum Leap?

I think that it is supposed to be set in the 40s, but with few errors :D

The first serie happens between 1942 and 1945. The other series happens in 1977. For Wonderwoman, who is a 2200 years old girl, 30 years is nothing :lol: :lol: The second and third serie are so typical '70s. I like it too.

A mid-1930's Ford on top of a red 1965-66 Dodge, two early-1960's Chevrolets(the one on top a 1963), a 1962-64 Dodge, the cab of another GM from the early-1960's, and a few others I can't see.

Seriously...who really looks at the background cars when there's Lynda Carter runnin' around in a Wonder Woman costume! :lol: Usually "Wondie" either drove a butt-ugly AMC of some kind or a Mercedes SL. Neither one I thought was that cool. She should have had a sports car of some kind--at least while she was special IADC agent "Diana Prince!"

No...producers were correct. They didn’t have front wheel drive vehicles in the 40s...and there weren’t that many in the 70s either. Most everything was still rear wheel drive. So, Wonder Woman was correct—she lifted the vehicles to prevent them from escaping by rear wheel drive. In the 70s episodes she did lift up a couple vehicles from the front. But her superhero strength prevented the bad guys from getting away, even though the tires were still burning rubber with the rear wheel drive.

I seem to recall that my Dad’s 1939 Citroën Traction Avant had front wheel drive. There was also my 1960 Mini Van, and Dad’s 1965 Austin 1800, 1971 Wolseley 18/85 and 1974 Morris 1800, not to mention the Austin Maxis that we both had, his a ‘72 manual and mine a ‘76 with a slush pump. There were also my two Lancia Fulvias, a ‘65 and a ‘67 both driven by the front wheels, and my 1976 Renault 20TL that I bought to get away from the auto gearbox on the Maxi.

Finally, as I have no personal recollection, it having been disposed of before I could recognise what it was, Dad had a 1932 BSA 3 wheeler upon his return from fighting Hitler in 1945, front wheel drive and the best he could afford while he saved up to get married.

Interesting info, but all these seem to be foreign cars compared to U.S. vehicles. The mid to late 1970s is around when I believe some U.S. cars started coming out with front wheel drive. Some friends of my parents got a green 1974 Oldsmobile Toronado in the mid 70s, and it was front wheel drive. That was a fairly new idea at that time, and everyone wondered how that was going to work, or if it’d work, LOL. Nowadays, other than sports cars most U.S. vehicles are front wheel drive. But, referring back to the Wonder Woman episodes, the producers were correct with having her lift the back part of the vehicles to prevent them from getting away. Back in the 1940s all of the vehicles would’ve still been rear wheel drive. A couple of the 70s cars/trucks, she did lift the fronts to stop them...but supposedly her super strength held them in place even though the rear tires were turning & squealing/burning rubber.

The comment made was exactly as above without qualification. No definition was made of who “they” might have been, and it certainly was not true for European countries where the necessity of fuel economy and small vehicles so consequent meant that designers were forced to look for ways of saving weight and using smaller engines. While accepting that the requirement for an American vehicle at that time was different due to the distances covered and the cheap fuel available your comment that all the cars I mentioned were “foreign” is fairly self evident. The only American car my family has ever owned was a Model T Ford in the 1920s/early 30s replaced by a much smaller Morris tourer in which my Dad took one of the earliest driving tests in Birmingham in 1936.

By the late 40s the Citroën was commonly seen, and by the 60s even popular makes like Minis and Renaults were embracing front wheel drive.

There was also the 1904 Christie, and one or two American low volume cars in the 20s. See Miller, Ruxton and Cord.

Yes, quite a few British designs did that, including Bentleys and Royces until slush pump transmission came in. My Bentley has a specially built centre change, but is one of very few so equipped.

Not so long ago (well a few years) the gear change and hand brake would be outside of the door or rather no door on that side. I gather the Bentley followed that track having the chauffeur sliding over across the bench seat to get out and open the rear door for the gentleman in the rear...

My original comment was made in regards to the vehicles used in “Wonder Woman”, as that’s what the comment I was originally responding to was talking about. Therefore, the “they” was referring to U.S. vehicles, since that’s what was primarily used in the show. And, again...all of these other vehicles mentioned with front wheel drive are foreign vehicles/models compared to U.S. ones.
