It’s an idea whose time has come—and not just to Instapundit, but to Chrysler.
Not for me. Between the radio, and the ipod that can be plugged into the radio, and the cell phone with the bluetooth, and then just plain driving, I’ve got my hands (or, rather, my head) full. Sometimes it’s even nice to enjoy the scenery.
And speaking of cars (we were speaking of cars, weren’t we?), if you want to save more gas—and who doesn’t these days—here are some tips. They’re mostly pretty standard fare, but I certainly haven’t been doing all of them, even though I remember some from the big bad days of the 70s oil crisis.
Empty out the trunk as much as possible to make the car less weighty (oh, another reason to go on a diet), change your air filter, get your engine tuned, inflate those tires, accelerate and brake more moderately, and a few others—including that old standby of the Carter years, drive more slowly on the highway. Since I’m chronically late for things, that’s one I seldom put into practice.
