 This is a feeble attempt at Wordless Wednesday.

I just couldn’t do it. 

“They don’t make ’em like they used to.”

Ever hear that?

And wish they did.

After all, they were beautiful.

And, in my opinion, the last Beautiful American Car ever made…

1977 Ford Thunderbird

Yes, I had one.

Some may come close, but works of art are few and far between.

The new Malibu is pretty, Honda, Acura, Lexus, and BMW have some fantastic looking cars, and the Buick LaCrosse and 2010 Ford Taurus are near art, but nothing compares to the American Dream Cars of the past.

But only in looks.

Automobiles have gone UP in price along with everything else.  Some of the increase comes from added safety features. 

You know, Ralph Nader,  Unsafe At Any Speed and all that.

But that’s a good thing.

So, asthetics aside, when I hear someone say, “They don’t make ’em like they used to.”  I whisper a quiet, “Thank God!”

Now, sit back and enjoy the video and be thankful they don’t make ’em like they used to.
