Dashing

The feature I most love about my '93 minivan is the dashboard design. Why don't they make cars and vans with dashboards parallel to the ground any more? It's so flat and stable and there's even a little lip to better hold things like my mug of tea or sunglasses or hand lotion or spare change or anything else I need to put down somewhere other than the floor. Bring back the dashboard shelf! Function is beautiful, after all.

  1. Krud, I find your grasp of the laws of motion to be sorely lacking.

  2. I think they're actually trying to discourage people from putting things up there, due to the whole brake/projectile factor. If you can't put your hot mug of coffee on the dash, then you can't sue them when you slam on the brakes and it goes flying into your lap.
