GM Futurliner

It doesn’t seem that long ago that we could be amazed by the simplest of things. Then came man on the Moon; home computers, cell phones, traction control, antilock brakes, texting, Facebook,¬†and computer generated graphics that rival reality.

It is a shame that today’s youth are bored with real face to face conversations with other people; movie stunts that could actually occur and music that sounds that same in person as it does on a record; excuse me, digital media.

The GM Futurliner caravan must have been like a World’s Fair (remember those?) pulling into your hometown. This brief clip tells a lot about¬†America in the 1950s. Was it a better time? Where the cars better? The answers to both questions are probably yes and no.

I grew up and lived in Iowa for a good portion of my life before moving to Southern California. After 20+ years we now live outside Nashville Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check out our other web site at www.TalladegaSpoilerRegistry.com site) As long as it has four wheels and an engine I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife, Katriana, is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. It includes a Best of Show winner, a survivor, a driver with lots of patina and several others. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out working with or showing our miniature donkeys.
