S S Of course today, there are no nickel cigars, and in fact even the nickel pack of chew. lng gum has disappeared. But perhaps what is needed today is a new automobile. S * There seems to be a large number of people, both in and out of government who have some great ideas how the auto- mobile should be built. But none of these people are actu- ally getting down to building a car. They just talk a lot and put more taxes on cars. 8o perhaps ~eeountry should wait with bated breath for a brand new automobile. It would seem appropriate ff this new car were to be called tho Nader Eight. S O Criticism of current ears seems to be centered around the allegations of Ralph Nader. ,** The Amerlean auto builders would probably welcome some eompetitlon. They have had It j from the Germans, the Swedes, I the Japanese, the French, the l British, and others, New Car mans, or the French raised to compete in the U.S. market. *** And the Amerlean publlo would welcome such a ear, which would perhaps develop 500 horsepower, never need servicing or repairs, and would be perfectly sa/e. s In other words, imagine a car which would be so sate that two happy drunks meeting head-on at 8Q miles per hour would ordy hSve to climb out and dust off the bumpers and stroll arm in arm into the near- est bar for another one for the road. O S In addition, all this, includ- ing I00 miles per gallon, and selling for less than $2,000. stt . If this all sounds like fantssy, it is. But it is equally as fan. rustic that today there are so many people who produce nothing who spend so much time and effort criticizing what has been created by American ingenuity and industry. SOS In other words, it seems about time that there ha aa end to the endless criticism of things American, and s little more talk about what hu amdo this country the envy of the world.
