Monday Musings

In my opinion, narcissism is a most deadly sin and it’s rampant in today’s world. “I’m right and you’re not so I can hurt you.” “I can do whatever I want because I’m really the only person that matters.” In my opinion inherent in much awful behavior today are those two thoughts.

Like with many of today’s ills I place much of the blame, especially in the developed world, on bad parenting. I’m serious, but I’ll just leave it at that…

No endeavor of human beings is perfect because no human being is perfect. In my opinion no one should have blind faith in any ideology or even any technology or discipline.

The American Automobile Association, better known as AAA, recently released the results of a survey about American attitudes toward autonomous vehicles. The big take-away is that 71 percent of Americans are afraid to ride in autonomous cars.

I would not ride in such a car without any means for me to take control in some type of emergency.

What do you think of this car?

9k-Mile 1999 Plymouth Prowler

From Bring a Trailer a picture of a 1999 Plymouth Prowler. The current bid is $20,250 and the bidding ends tomorrow.

I am not a fan of street rods/hot rods so I am not really a fan of these cars. However, I appreciate Chrysler’s effort to do something different in the US car market.

All of these cars were powered by a 3.5 liter/215 cubic-inch V6 mated to a four-speed automatic transmission. For the first model year, 1997, the engine was rated at 214 HP/221 LB-FT of torque. For 1999 the output was increased to 253 HP/255 LB-FT. The Prowler was made through the 2002 model year, which means at the end it was called a Chrysler Prowler as the Plymouth make was discontinued in 2001.

About 12,000 Prowlers were made and about 8,500 of those were badged as Plymouths. They certainly are distinctive even if they’re not my cup of tea. What American cars today could be called distinctive?
