What Dmitry forgot to add/note re: his dislike of cars is the complete and total forfeiture of your Constitutional rights the second you slide behind the wheel. The cops can basically pull you over for ANY reason, search your car for ANY reason (w/out a warrant), force you to blow into a breathlyzer at a random "checkpoint," etc. Not to mention nanny state nonsense like seat belt laws, no cell phone laws,- hell, a few years ago some NJ legislator introduce a bill that would ban cigarette smoking in private vehicles! I think in some states it is already illegal to smoke in a car if a minor is on board.
One thing I REALLY despise is the now-nonstop "seat belt reminder" that will ring every 20 seconds if you don't have the belt fastened. Used to be they only rang when you started the engine, then they stopped even if you didn't "buckle up." I'd like to find the ninny who mandated the endless seat belt chime and pound a fucking claw hammer into their brainstem.
Funny how the most beautiful cars of all time were the Depression era tin, like the '34 Ford V8. The sweep of the running boards, the V-grille, the ducktail rear/trunklid - just beautiful, an absolute work of art. What a shame that the few originals left are "pimped" into street rods and other nonsensical trash. Chopping a car like that into a garish custom is like a graffitti "artist" tagging the Mona Lisa w/ spray paint.
