The mustang is used by the socs to get around, it is their vehicle of choice. It is important because it was the car bob came to the park with to get johnny and ponyboy. "The Mustang came to a halt beside us, and the two boys in the front seat got out." (S.E Hinton pg.44)


The switchblade is the weapon of choice by the gang, they use them to defend themselves from the Socs. It is important because they pull the switchblades out when the Socs jump them. it was also the switchblade used by Johnny that killed Bob. He used that switchblade after being attacked by the socs. "He was clutching his switchblade, and it was dark to the hilt." (S.E. Hilton pg. 56)
