Response to Car evolution


That's a good point about the headlights. On my car, I was attempting to change the headlamp and the little clip that holds it in place was very difficult to get back on. A little too much pressure and something snapped. A $200 repair bill. I'm more careful now. But there still isn't much room for your hand.

I'm please to see people saying good things about the Ford Escort. I think writers have been biased against American cars. A good thing on a Japanese car is somehow a bad thing on an American car. Did you ever read praise from an automobile writer about the Escort? Mine almost made it to 200,000 miles before someone driving a Lexus rammed into it while it was parked in the driveway in front of the house. And everything you say about the bumpers was true. It was tested three times and was virtually undamaged. The plastic you see was not the bumper.

But even the old Volvos were not perfect. We had our first Volvo Wagon, bought new, for 18 years. Yet we went through about a dozen mufflers. We have two more wagons now and the one I drive to work I've had for only four years, so I imagine it's the last car I'll ever own.
