Let's Make a Run For It

You are approaching the railroad crossing at Wabash and Belvedere, when the clang of bells ring out; down come the parallel red lights, for the train is coming. This is not the Light Rail, but a CSX convoy, and this could take a while.

You are sitting in a brand new Chevy Corvette, “punked out” using Germain engineering: wider tires, larger rear shoulders, and frothing with horsepower! Would you wait for CSX, or make a run for it?

OK. I am at the 2014 Motor Trend International Auto Show: cars, cars, and more cars. Some with inflatable rear seat belts. Some with Parking assist buttons, “Hello seniors, mentally and physically!” Voice activation, built-in WI-FI.

The Pep Boys booth, surprised me, the “boys” have some 100 speed shops Nationwide, (one right here in Glen Burnie) where you can get parts to rebuild that 1927 Ford, your great, great, grandfather left you.

The show was spectacular, with every manufacturer with a luxury model to see. KIA has the K900. I remember when one could buy the Hyundai Elantra with $99 down and $99 per month. Not anymore.

But the die hard car lovers are not going down without a fight, the Antique Automobile Club, showcased their pearls of luxury i.e. The Buick Riviera (see video) and Ron King remembers his days when he and company were making a run for it.
