These cars were 1970 and older, from a time when straight ahead horsepower reigned supreme. (It is so appropriate that I collect these thoughts listening to Danny Finkleman and 'Finkleman's Forty Fives', CBC's collection of music of the '50's '60's and early '70's.) And the music says it all. It was a simpler time, when computers were only found in corporate headquarters, certainly not under the hood of a car, a smoke was a smoke, drive-ins not drive-byes were the focus of youth in cars, and horsepower was not confused as a phallic symbol. This was an extraordinary place where
the feminine side of men was left at the gate.
