Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 30, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta by MAUREEN JAWIESON QFF with the old, on with the new, isn't always such a brilliant idea. New ain't necessarily good. This was brought home to me with a resounding thud last night when my Willyum unwrapped his new car in front ot an ad- miring family. Well I just naturally had to try it out right away; but I drove less than a block before turn- ed around, came home and parked on the dn.ewav As far as I'm concerned, That Thin" can stay there until it becomes a museum v.-hile I hap- pily grind gears in my good old felunker. It's not that I mind having to get a pilot's li- cence to cope with the rows of and switches on the dash. What sends rny blood pressure soaring is basing That Thing tell rne how to drive. (It isn't bad enough having six children, one hus- band and a cat who know thev drive better than I do now they have the car on their side Although l' don't fee] I'm really senile vat, I'm merely mildly unamused when That 'filing telis me the key is in" the ignition or the door is open some- where. It's that relentless, tooth-grinding buzz that I get, just because I don't happen to wear a seat belt around town, that blows my mind! On that first short drive, I knew right away the world would be a happier place without the scientist who could invent a car Like that. I'm' quite convinced he's out to rule the world, and I'm very much afraid his recent accomplishments will only spur him on to bigger and more frighten- ing things. Right now he's probably programming next years model to stop far ten seconds at each intersection to let little old ladies and boy scouts cross the street. Once that's off the drawing board, chances sre the dash will have to be enlarged to ac- commodate the various beeps designed to i.'U'onn rne when to wipe mv nose, when the casserole runneth over in my nice "clean oven, and when my husband is having an affair with a foreign sports car. Furthermore. I have a sneaky suspicion all these beeps will be recorded on some sort of central con- trol system at the local cop shop, and minions of the law will then beam in on my private wavelength and send me out a few thousand more tickets, You can see why the antique car craze is grow- ing1 If. you're passing a used car Io'. one city, and catch sight of some nice, friendly old mode! which can keep its nuts and bolts out of. your grab it while you have the chance.
