Neither Fish Nor Fowl Nor Bike

As the American car industry declines, a reminder of what went wrong in American manufacturing over the last 40 years. The Gremlin. Aren't Gremlin's something to be avoided? They are a rare breed these days, because nobody can find enough parts to reassemble them. Sure they're cute in a nostalgic sort of way. Nostalgia for the 70's is a double edged sword, though. Groundbreaking and inventive... Or ugly and excessive. Perhaps the little Gremlin fits all of those descriptions.

The car company's had their chance in the 20th Century. Here's for the new Bicycle Century!

I kind of have a love/hate thing going with the 70's. Wild and ugly.

By car seats, you mean child restraints. Yep, those were the good old days. I remember putting my head on my mothers lap, as she drove. They'd lock you up, today.

It was also before helmets.
