This is one of my favorite stories in a long time. Thank you!
Renee, not all "old" vehicles are owned and driven by poor people. Some of us own "classics" because we liked them back then and still like them and take care of them.
My classics are all two seater sports models and I drive like I actually learned how to drive back in high school. I don't text, very rarely answer the cell phone, watch out for stale green lights, and generally try to pay attention to what is going on around me.
Much of what you observe is correct but use a little finer brush when categorizing drivers and their vehicles.
Now my pet peeve is those monster trucks with 4, count 'em 4, brain piercing headlights, What idiot repealed the law that headlights had to be a certain distance above the road and that drivers should dim them when following or approaching another vehicle?
Besides the dimmed rear view mirror, I have side mirrors and suddenly you are blinded by a light that would do a lighthouse proud until you have almost no forward vision. It takes a few seconds for your pupils to adapt and in the mean time, Macho Monster truck is still sitting on your bumper.
