    Cruise control. Nice..

    The long-handled brush would be useful in some spots. Then again, those’re often the spots that you just don’t bother painting anyways.

    My father’s cousin had a car where you could set a dial on the speedometer and it would buzz if you went above that speed.

    Actually, having a speed bug display on the speedometer in conjunction with a cruise control or automatic throttles would be quite convenient. Such displays have been used on aircraft for years.

    Not unless it was on an XBOX!

    Archery at night: what a great idea. Nothing could go wrong there. Sheesh!

    I would love to have one of those long-handled brushes. Unfortunately, sometimes the places that are the hardest to reach are the places where not painting will be the most obvious, because you can see them from every vantage point.

    Charlene: If a radiator brush isn’t long enough, you can attach the brush to an old broom handle or similar with a duct-tape.
