Black, Silver, Black, Silver... [Nov. 3rd, 2006|02:13 pm]

All cars look alike. 

Our car is having trouble with its cat converter, so we took it to Carcraft.  While they were dealing  with it, we walked up and down the gleaming lines of merchandise on their vast forecourt.

They sell all sorts, all makes. And a Ford  looks like a Mercedes looks like a Dhaitsu.

Yes, I know there are fiddly little differences of detail and trim, but basically they all have the same smoothly rounded aerodynamic shape. 

And a very nice shape it is too. Like a baked bean on wheels. 

But wouldn't it be nice if there was a bit more variety?

And a greater range of colours.  Gosh, what serious, sober  people we are!  

Black, silver, black, silver, silver, silver, burgundy....

How much better for our souls if all cars came in girly, day-glo colours with daisies and Ban the Bomb logos.

I heard that Bush is going to talk with the Big Three auto manufacturers next week about finding fuel alternatives, etc.

It seems to me that the failing Big Three would do well to scrap their entire line and come up with a truly efficient vehicle that uses either less gas or an alternative. Maybe that would save them from their slide into bankruptcy. But they aren't far-thinking, which is why their big cars are not selling.

Anyway, what's the point of having a mighty engine when you're stuck in gridlock on the Interstate?

It seems to me it's a human trait to leave things till the very last moment. We could have been developing new and energy-efficient cars decades ago (it's not as if we didn't know that the oil would run out) but, no, we're lazy and we don't do a thing about it until we're in crisis
