Well, the easy answer is that I still miss my Integra, the one was stolen and destroyed by thieves.

But what I’m really mourning is an entire philosophy of automotive design, and the loss of several features I still deem desireable in cars. I miss cars that were built to be lightweight, before the proliferation of 4-door full-size trucks and Canyoneros turned everything into a tall, thick-pillared bunker on 20" wheels. I miss simple rotary HVAC controls and dashboards free of touch screens or little mouse menu controllers. I miss normally aspirated engines. I miss double-wishbone suspensions. I miss manual gearboxes. I miss cars that don’t have to be going fast to be fun.

That’s what I’m really mourning.
