What Car Feature Would You Bring Back From The Dead?

Illustration for article titled What Car Feature Would You Bring Back From The Dead?

Cars are subjects to trends and fashion, just like any of us. And while most of those trends just end up embarrassing us later (like those harem pants Travis still wears) some are genuinely missed. Cars have seen a lot of novel designs and technical features come and go — what do you miss most?

It's sort of hard for me to pick — some, like vinyl tops, have a kitch value now, but I don't think they really need to make a comeback. T-Tops, though, those were fun and gave the car a very different feel from a sunroof. Four wheel steering is sort of still around, but minimally, and not like it was in the early 90s. There's a lot of interesting stuff left behind.

So, tell me — what should we grave-rob from the big sky-junkyard and resurrect?
