Until our cars could talk to smart phones. No need to pack additional media for road trips.

Not a good thing to wake up to. 48" main. Looks like a total of 3 square blocks got flooded.

Took me way longer (time-wise) than it should have.

Remind me not to sail with you.

All of my bands music from high school was recorded on to tapes. I still have those, but no way to listen.

I still have a walkman, but only one tape. Bird calls.

I can clearly remember when 0-60 in 6.6 seconds was a sporty car. Now, your average Honda Accord can do that.

When the secondary purpose of playing a tape was to drown out the sounds of my rattling car, the quality of the tape was fairly irrelevant. I just needed it to be loud.

I'm fairly sure the 5000 lb box I drive ('17 Explorer) is close to that.

Maybe even faster: Tested: 2017 Ford Explorer Platinum (caranddriver.com)

You didn't know you are so sporty!

My Explorer is the XLT with a slightly less powerful engine than the one in that test, so it will probably be closer to the 944 number ;)

The article - comparing a '16 Explorer Sport to a '17 Explorer Platinum - is kind of dumb. The '17 model year got an upgrade to the info-tainment system, but they are mechanically identical vehicles. The Platinum is the luxury-trimmed version of the Sport.

The newer Explorers are surprisingly agile for a big box. My '17 is a big step up from my previous '06.

And, like my Dodge, go 80,000 miles on nothing but oil changes every 10,000 miles. A car with 80,000 miles on it used to be considered almost ready to junk.

Our Acura has 130k miles and has only needed tires, brakes and timing. My VW has 85k and has just needed tires and brakes

Not just "considered", but was ready to junk.
