*tossing Faldage a couple-three hyphens*

Yeah! Car phones were around in the 90s, sure, but.

labor strike by baseball players results in the premature termination of the season, and the cancellation of the World Series for the first time since 1904.

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.
