Post in one of my thread's jarred a thought: the comment was about how people can't park today w/o using a camera. So, my question is, were people better are parking in the past decades? Or did they back into things back then too? Ok, a bit more serious: Today we complain about the higher beltline on vehicles. But I want to say that cars used to have much longer noses and tails. At least in the 60's. The lighter/smaller cars of the late 70's and through the 80's were different. Was visibility (for backing up or parallel parking) better in the 80's and 90's? I tend to think so--but I wonder if it was worse before then. Backup cameras were not feasible back then. Are we complaining about something that really would have been helpful on through the decades? Or are the boats that I think of, during the 60's and 70's, the atypical cars of that period?
