 As a new year rolls in lets take a look of cars from 1915, big difference in 100 years huh?
Sneak peek Alternate Fuel cars!

Ok maybe not for a few years.

Gallon of gas 31 cents

50 years ago and a lack of any alternate fuel vehicles put us in motion for the upcoming fuel crisis scam!
Always a mystery to me is why the Mustang is so revered as something new, 1965 Plymouth had a nimble Barracuda available with some perky V8's 
The Barracuda was cool, really! Gotta love the dude in the tie holding a surf board, LOL!

The GTO was the first muscle car a year earlier- big engine/little car combo!
 1965 model
1965 Peugeot Diesel concept
1965 Turbo Titan III 
1965 Chevrolet sidewinder military concept
Ford puts a new 1965 Mustang on the Empire State Building!
WHY? I heard the guy dropped the keys on to 34th Street! 
1965 Saab Sonett III prototype
1965 Yenko Corvair Stinger and it did pack a sting!
1965 Sunbeam Tiger - British car Ford 289 V8, very fast and oddly enough there was a Chrysler Pentastar on the lower right fender, you ask why? Sunbeam fell under a Chrysler Umbrella that included the Rootes Group which also included Hilman cars. 
  1965 Indy Lotus
1965 Amphicar
1965 Corvette Manta Ray concept, could this be the upcoming Stingray?
1965 Dodge Charger II show car, maybe this became the 66 Charger?
1965 AMC Vixen concept- can you see the Hornet in here?
1965 Pontiac Banshee concept, 68 Corvetteish?

Hey you can google 1965 cars all day long, but I wanted to show some odd ones!

For some reason I recalled Y2K hysteria of 15 years ago  
 All computer controlled cars were going to stop dead in their tracks after midnight! Think about this for a minute, the car with a computer would suddenly think it is 1900 and it was not invented yet?
So just like Marty McFly's who's siblings are disappearing in the Back to the Future trilogy
Oh no the parents never got together  and they are gone!
You are next Marty and your car won't start, pretty high drama,but mostly funny!

 Happy 2000! And a big thud, life kept moving normally!

 Admit it some of you bought this book, come on be honest!
I do admit I paid all my pending bills earlier just in case computer glitches did happen!
 Then the big bubble buster it actually was one more year away! 
 Obviously we made it past that too!

There is that trophy!
