This story perfectly points out that to our generations transportation was not just a means to get from here to there.  The love affair (sometimes hate) we all had with our cars and with the industry is something todays fans might not fully understand.  While the country has changed rapidly in technology and communications, gone are the days of trying to peek into a dealership to see the new models.   Gone are the days that you could easily recognize every car on the road.  For some the days of getting hands dirty, rebuilding, machining, etc. are fading.  Somehow electronics don't give me the same excitement.

 

What a great story, reality at its best!  Not a made up TV show but real world reality.
