Not to sound like a fuddy-duddy, but it wasn't that long ago when American were riding horses. It used to be everyone had a horse and only the wealthy owned a car, now everyone owns a car and only the wealthy have a horse.

Let's take a drive down memory lane. The first cars were open-air bumblers with skinny tires, powered by steam engines, and could only fit two people. Starting them was often a lesson in patience and you didn't drive it far because there were few roads!

By the 20s, roadsters were available on a large scale. This was the moment luxury vehicles started to "wow" drivers with opulence and high-end car makers like Bentley, and Rolls-Royce have continued to offer extravagant beauty with high performance.

Over the years, car companies have modernized cars in both style and utility. Cars in the 50s are memorable for being convertible and cars in the 60s and 70s found followers who still love their muscle cars. Don't we all?

All these changes have delivered us to today's automobiles that can even drive themselves (much like a horse!) We have a button or computer toggle for every function and safety advances keep us protected like never before. The next 50 years in auto manufacturing will be exciting!

Times have changed, but one thing still rings true: your car should perform properly for safety, economy, and longevity. Today's cars reach 200,000-300,000 miles with proper care and maintenance. Stop by Sherwood Auto Repair today and let's take care of your automobile needs.
