|I had one of these, even had the redlines, completely stock.|
I love cars! I have had, enjoyed, and adored old cars, new cars, sports cars. I love them for their mechanics, engineering, innovation, and design. They speak to me of freedom and patriotism. They are a moving tribute to America and the embodiment of liberty. You can call me crazy but driving is more than getting from point a to point b for me. I have a friend that loves Camrys. To me that is like loving an appliance. That is like loving your can-opener or toaster oven, a great utility but without passion or enthusiasm for the underlying symbology or significance of the automobile.
Today I watched a video that was an eye opener. I probably had seen it before, it's certainly not new but it resonated with me today.
I guess what we all would like to believe is:
1. They don't make'em like they used to (thank G-d)
2. Them old cars are like tanks (not! watch the video)
3. New cars are less safe because of all the plastic, and they aren't made very well or made to last
