Inclined to Luxury
You can see a lot of vintage automobiles on Staten Island. Unfortunately, they're most often seen on a flatbed truck being transported to somewhere else. My nephew identified this one from the photo as a Rolls Royce Phantom. No doubt he's right. You never know more about cars then before you actually start to drive them.
I asked my undergraduates--for purely pedagogical purposes, of course--how many had learned to drive on a standard transmission, and only one hand went up (besides mine). A lost art.
