I remember when…

July 18th, 2006

…Bumpers and hubcaps were the least expensive parts of a car.

The point was that both were expected to take a bit of a beating, cialis generic decease so replacing them shouldn’t be that difficult.

Then the car manufacturers figured out that they could put a little piece of plastic crap on the front of a car and charge over $600 to replace it if you ever actually bumped into something.

Don’t even get me started on how much it costs to replace a headlamp.

Hell, I remember when you could go to the autoparts store, buy a bulb for $25 and screw it in yourself.

Now, the only things getting screwed are car owners.

    How about chrome polish on real bumpers. Or when you could flip open the hood and see through to the pavement underneath>???
