Sign of the times

Taking the girls back home on Sunday night, I found myself stuck behind these two cars going into the entrance of the Lane Cove tunnel. The first was this huge old Big American Car, straight out of the 50's, chugging along at about 40kph (or possibly 25 mph?). The second was a ute and obviously a "chase" car.

Once we got into the tunnel proper, I overtook them and drove on, and quickly lost sight.

About an hour later, on the way back after having dropped the girls off, just before the entrance to the tunnel, I spotted the Big American Car, abandoned by the side of the road. It has obviously only just made it out the tunnel before conking out.

Fairly symbolic, I thought, that the age of the big car is well and truly over.
