Great! I love that show.

Ha! A few lines in this one reminded me: Recently at a friend's house, I picked up a book called something like 50 Cars That Were Never Produced. It was a compilation of concept cars going back to the '30s or so. Having owned a 1959 Vauxhall Super Victor Estate Wagon, I was stunned to see some of the seriously sleek cars Vauxhall came up with over the years. Of course there were the expected heaps of Ferarris and such, but there were also several that really amused me. There was a Volvo from, I dunno, the late 60's or so. The "concept" was something to do with a front air dam that retracted until you hit 40 or 50mph. Or something like that. Looked *exactly* like today's Volvos. And then there was the safety concept Volvo from the mid 50's. Which also looked exactly like today's. Biological species evolve faster than these things!
