A blog dedicated to exploring the practice of law before the internet. Heck, before good interstate highways for that matter.
I was thinking the other day about how ancient a forty-year old vehicle would have looked to me when I was 16, and whether a 16-yr old would see something like a 1975 Chevy pickup in the same way today.I wouldn't call that heavily rusted, I'd call it a nice honest patina. Heavily rusted is when the fenderwells and rockerpanels are just jagged, rusty metal teeth of flesh-ripping meanness.
This (Iphone) photo doesn't really do it justice. Viewed from the side, it was quite a bit more rusted.I've often pondered things along the same lines as you note. My first vehicle was 20 years old when I was 15, and my second was something like seven years old, but heavily used, when I was 17, but it seemed old. Now a seven year old vehicle doesn't seem old to me at all.
