They Just Don't Make Them Like They Used To....

Sorry I've been away from the blog for so long. I've been dealing with the daily grind. You know how it goes.

While I've been otherwise occupied, some goobers decided to smash a 1959 Chevy Bel Air into a 2009 Chevy Malibu in order to make a point:

They just don't make 'em like they used to.

Some of y'all who knew me back when may recall that I used to drive a classic car -- that my first car was, in fact, older than I. There were a lot of things to love about that car. From time to time, I even fantasize about the notion of picking up another such car, fixing her up, and making that my driving-around-town vehicle.

But, no, that's a foolish notion, and nostalgia for the things I'm fond of gives way to the sad reality that there's a reason they don't make 'em like they used to. And, that's usually a good thing.

Here's a link to the article: IIHS crashes modern Malibu into '59 Bel Air.

I recommend reading the article. But, since you're here now anyway, check out the video:
