How many cars are there?

In 1950, 121 thousand cars were registered in the Netherlands. Even before the Second World War, cars were becoming a popular means of getting around. In spite if this, cars were still considered quite special in 1950, when there were twelve cars per thousand inhabitants. Car numbers started to rise rapidly in the 1960s and 1970s, as more and more people had enough money to buy one.
