Re: Things we dropped from yesteryear - in our car
This is indeed a nostalgic little thread. I haven't been driving long enough to know a lot of the nuances and niches some of us are missing, however I remember my father taking utmost care of the Ambassador Mark III we had before we moved to the fabled Maruti 800 after 16 years.
What I miss? Surely enough some considerable, measurable and usable 'Bumpers'! I feel an unnerving and unsettled feeling in my tummy when I see the card-board-like fibre bumpers on modern cars. Some of them are so immaterial that a slight shunt will set the owners back by a broken radiator or a majorly dented tail-gate/ dicky. Whereas safety standards have taken the cars in modern era to greater heights, in cities like ours, our new cars look like they were in a war-zone after a few days or months.
