Yesterday the_child and I passed a beautiful Model T pickup in dense city traffic. She looked at it and said, "He's crazy. Why does he drive that here?"

I said, "Well, if I owned a classic, I'd probably want the joy of driving it sometime."

the_child's answer to that was, "If I owned that car, I'd only drive it on the open road where I could see other people coming."

Yeah, but if you're driving one of those there's something to be said about being seen as well as seeing. At least for some.
