It's a bit chilly in the house. Turned up the thermostat. Then I start reading this thread and ran across PF's post:

Do I watch too many TV cop shows? I'm really not interested in the new cars, but find myself trying to pay attention to body shapes & makes, just in case I have to ID a car.

Spike is amazed at the fact I can see a car from the fifties or sixties and tell you the make and year. As a teenager, every October was "Reveal The New Model For The Coming Year" month. Now they come out with a new model every month. And there are more makers. During my teen years, all the cars were American made.

When I worked for the Police Department, I got into the habit as I walked over the bridge, to look at the door locks to see if they were pulled. It meant it was stolen and abandoned. I still look today at the locks today. I also look at the sticker on the plate. If it doesn't match the number or letter on the plate, the registration has expired. Now who is the wacko! And I don't even know how to drive.

Back in the sixties every model had its own, distinct shape. Now pretty much all cars look alike. Boooooring!

I really loved the little '57 Thunderbird. Had a white one with a white removable hard top & a black rag top.

Have you seen any of the little two-seaters out today? I can't remember the makers. OOOGALY! And todays colors! Lime green? Are they kidding? Don't pull a bank robbery in one of them. A witness will be able to give the police a great description of the getaway car.

You must be talking about the Smart fortwo. I don't understand these cars, there are MANY regular 4 seat cars that match or beat their gas mileage! They are rated 38 mpg highway, I've gotten that in a car that will seat 4 adults. I also have about double the horsepower and an automatic transmission.

I know that they are supposed to be city cars and they get decent city mileage, they just don't seem to make a whole lot of sense in the US. I can see them being great in narrow city streets in Europe though.
