I had a banner ad today that made me wonder what my ten year younger self would have thought it referred to. So everybody put your heads back into the early '90s:

A hands free car - very Jetsonian. But where does the cellular part fit in??

I shocked a teen the other day by saying that I went to school before cell phones, before e-mail and before the PC. (personal computer or politically correct, take your choice.) Amazing what we have learned to take for granted in so short a time.

It must be an electric car! (WOW! Doesn't that *sound futuristic? e.g.)

And it's a kit! So simple even an adult can build one.
