Welcome to Sunday Matinee, where we highlight classic car reviews or other longer videos I find on YouTube. Kick back and enjoy this blast from the past.


I always find retro-futurism incredibly interesting. Seeing how the 1890s, the 1930s, and the 1960s all predicted modern times is fascinating, and it's a little wild to see how close some of those old predictions were, and how far off the mark they came.

But what if we wanted to see the predictions of yore not from the 1890s, 1930s, or 1960s? What if we wanted to see the predictions of, let's just say, the 2000s?


Alright, so if you're reading this sentence now it's highly likely you were alive to make those predictions yourself.

(No, your prediction of Al Gore's 4th term never came true, but Doritos Locos Tacos most certainly did. Good on you, Nostradamus.)

But it is still pretty neat to watch this documentary from about ten years ago, and marvel about what we were all marveling about back then. GPS systems that notify you of traffic ahead (which we now know can actually be extremely annoying), lane-departure warning systems, and seat-belt pre-tensioners are all mentioned here, and we've all got them now.

Alright, so no hydrogen cars yet, but maybe in another 10 years.

Yes. That is definitely going to happen. Just ten more years. That's all we've ever needed.
