    What's amazing is to look through pictures of automobiles from inception to now. The changes and modifications, the styles and what we saw then as luxury compared to what you have now. Tires began as wood, then went to "white rubber" until it was discovered that "black rubber" made them last longer. Things like "air bags" weren't even imagined in the early years. It was all so simple compared to now. Now? There are more computers in your average vehicle then the spaceship that took us to the moon!!!!!

    Imagine taking Henry Ford off his assembly line of Model As and sticking him in a modern day plant. He'd be out of his mind!!!!!

        No kidding! You'd think at some point it has got to be "enough". I mean.. cars that park themselves? Cars that make "2,000 decisions a second"? It's getting to be too much. I'd be happy in a '68 Chevy C10 that runs decently.. but there is always that next new gadget or great thing.
