  1. James Indy Says:

    Ford out of cars. Well, my dad’s first car was Model A. He told me he remembers the first car (not the A) that one seat DOWN INTO. So, TODAY, one might call that ‘a car’.

    Now, think today…

    sedans/coupes one flops DOWN INTO. Those were NOT the first ‘cars’.

    Again, dad used to tell me how everyone found that uncomfortable and felt unnatural, compared to seats that allowed one to be more upright. Without knees at or above hips.

    So, I posit to you that we are getting back (returning) to the FIRST CARs… and the flop down into the seats vehicles have RUN THEIR COURSE… just as my dad lamented they came into existence any way.
