... While watching an old episode of "Cops." It looked to be from 89-90... The cop was making a traffic stop on a thoroughfare. Along both sides of the street I could see, lined all up, all of these tune-up shops. Andy Granatelli's Tune Up Masters, TuneCo, MagicTune, and so on, and it hit me. These no longer exist! There used to be hundred thousands of these nationwide. They are all..... GONE. Electronic fuel injection and computer controls on internal combustion engines, the death of the carburetor, put ALL of these out of business! How many jobs lost? What was the hit on the economy that was slowly absorbed, without our notice over several years? What a wake-up call on how technology progresses, with results unnoticed.
