    120th Anniversary of the Automobile

    Nobody's picked up on this yet, I'm surprised!

    Today, Jan. 29th, 120 years ago Karl Benz filed for his first patent for his "Tri-Car". 120 years later, we've come a long way. Happy birthday to the car!

    I wrote something about it on my website if you're morbidly interested.

    that was a great read! you even had me laughing sometimes! you should ask for a column in the sun or sth

    The GM guys could have screwed it up so easily; remember the hideous 1999 Pontiac GTO Concept? Me neither.
