It’s one of those happy, clappy news days when pistonheads have a surfeit of stories to investigate from the privacy of their cubicle. I sometimes wonder what creates this compulsive fascination with four-wheeled transportation. The standard take on the subject is that the automobile represents freedom. Supposedly, congestion, high gas prices and environmental responsibility have destroyed this traditional romantic association between the car and the proverbial “open road.” (Personally, I think National Lampoon’s Summer Vacation had a lot to do with it.) But this perceived wisdom fail to realize that the car isn’t just about going towards something new and exciting, it’s about moving away from stuff that drives you nuts: Mom, Dad, the Boss, Wife/Husband, kids, etc. A large part of TTAC’s mission is to help aid this process of escape– if only for ten minutes and three seconds. If you haven’t tried this precast thing, go for it. The only thing you have to lose is the stress of not being behind the wheel.
