Design, engineering & excitement in the automotive industry! Looking at how cars are designed and engineered, some of the great ideas, new and old, some past follies where they really fouled up the styling, and some ideas for car design. We'll also explore some ways what they have planned for the future can be improved.
Cars changed: Instead of mediocre crapmobiles that rust and rot, wobbling, squeaking and rattling, down the road, they've become durable, quality pieces. It's funny to see old cars in period-piece movies. Consistently pristine, sparkling and smokeless, unlike the real cars in the 50s through 70s that were clapped-out, ratted-out, rotted out, smoke-spewing and noisy. Hoopties with terminal road rash, barely kept alive -- and this was sometimes after only a couple years of use.
