Throughout The Car Industry
Not that many people say this very often, but it's probably a good thing that I'm not rich. I would, naturally, spend a large amount of my money on cars, which is not a bad thing, it's just that the cars I'd spend money on wouldn't exactly endear me to the rest of my family.
Granted, having the world's largest collection of station wagons wouldn't be the worst thing for them to inherit, but even with the recent—and forecast—increase in values for wagons, chances are that they'd just break even if they sold the lot.

I've never understood the fascination people have with Porsches, and I'm apparently not alone. Hell, the world is filled with idiots that don't even know it's pronounced poor-SHA. (And that's everywhere, every time, jerks. No exceptions.)

Each year Pebble Beach committee tries hard to invite vehicles which truly represent the full breadth and depth of automobility: this year there was a class of significant Mercury lead sled customs. The featured marques were du Pont and Ferrari. It was most enjoyable to see a class of Shelbys, and thus a row of Mustangs, on the Pebble Beach lawn amongst all the Ferraris!

There are certain historical events that you learn about that helped to shape the way that we have evolved as a culture. Some of them are political, some of them are military, and some of them are industrial. In some cases, you wish you were there to experience them, and, in others, you are very glad that you weren't.
I'm a fan of old things of all kinds, because they carry history with them. Of course, I love classic cars, and I write about them often on this blog.
When you think about suitable toys for the “man who has everything”, your imagination can really run wild. Personally, when I think about the scenario, I can't help but think about Hugh Hefner's world, but this is a family automotive blog so I have to veer away from those visions and think about motor vehicles.
There is a handful of TV shows that ultimately defined popular culture during certain eras. I first came of age during the late 1970s, and the Charlie's Angels series was one of those shows at that time. It first aired in 1976 when I was 16, and it lasted through 1981.
When you are weathering the storm during the winter, time can sometimes seem to pass very slowly as you look forward to the warmer months. In a somewhat cruel twist of psychological fate, the situation is reversed when summer finally arrives. You can do all the things you love to do without any impediments, but the Fourth of July tends to turn into Labor Day far too quickly.
There are some things that you can watch on TV without volume while you are listening to music, and you have no trouble following what's going on. When you're in this position, you get the best of both worlds.
