Then, of course, there's the usage of the term in relation to cars.Yeah, I long for the days when cars were fun, lovable and imbued with tons of character.You also need to change the tire on the other side of the car or your car will pull to one side, meaning your expense just doubled.Let's talk about the rest of the car. A Volkswagen Beetle once rammed into it ... and nothing happened, just a tiny scratch.But today's cars don't have bumpers, they have fasciae! That "couth" fascia is the entire front end of the car, and if so much as a bicycle runs into it, even when it's parked, you'll need to replace that "couthness" in its entirety, and spend about half what the car is worth to do it.The shifters on today's cars sort of resemble government documents, at least the part that says "for administrative use only".In the name of progress shifters are increasingly becoming distant, even mere stalks behind a steering wheel.
