I am not quite old enough for me to be around when that model was common, but that wasn't the question.

"We see things only as we are constructed to see them, and can gain no idea of their absolute nature. With five feeble senses we pretend to comprehend the boundlessly complex cosmos, yet other beings with wider, stronger, or different range of senses might not only see very differently the things we see, but might see and study whole worlds of matter, energy, and life which lie close at hand yet can never be detected with the senses we have." - H.P. Lovecraft, "From Beyond" Published 1934

The only car I did not like we had was a 1980 Lincoln Continetal, that car puffed up and down. I felt  like I was getting into a space ship:) and one had to remember his  long code of numbers in the door  to even get in the darn thing :)

The city and citizens, which you yesterday described to us in fiction, we will now transfer to the world of reality. It shall be the ancient city of Athens, and we will suppose that the citizens whom you imagined, were our veritable ancestors, of whom the priest spoke; they will perfectly harmonise, and there will be no inconsistency in saying that the citizens of your republic are these ancient Athenians. --  Plato's Timaeus

I thought the 1962 Lincoln Continental, with the suicide doors, drove like a dream. The Lincolns and the Cadillacs both started going down in the '80's.
