Adding the right technology to an older vehicle can make it feel brand new. Upgrade your old car with these high-tech accessories for a dramatically different ride.
When I was a kid, my two sets of grandparents each had what I considered to be some high-tech 1970s gadgetry in their cars. One had a compass stuck to the windshield, a little floating ball that swiveled like BB-8 to show us the direction in which we traveled. Amazing! The other had a talking Chrysler that would voice warnings such as “The door…is ajar!” or “Your directional signal is…still on!” It was awesome.
