The other day I was walking through the walmart parking lot looking at cars, and noticed how bland and boring even the sports cars look. then I thought about movies like American Graffitti and Dazed and Confused (both featuring classic cars in classic era’s) and I can’t imagine anyone ever making a movie about the classic 90’s and the economic ford escort’s. This coupled with the results of the ‘best of’ threads reminded me of the old saying…
They just don’t make’em like they used to.
I also notice this with furniture pieces, vintage clothing, music instruments, etc. Now I realize that some things like computers and electronics are getting better, but what do think ‘they don’t make like they used to’? What do we have today which may be classic later?
My list for all time favorites are
'59 Gretshe 6120 Guitar
Ties from the 40’s and 50’s (the naked or hula girl ones especially)
Music, Music, Music
Books (The Great Gatsby, To Kill A Mockingbird)
p.s. If this has been done before, do it again, there’s lots of new people. thanks
