Can any of you remember when cars were made mostly of metal? By the 1960's cars' exteriors were slowly beginning to include plastic parts, such as the bumper of this 1969 Pontiac Trans Am.

And, more recently, plastic is more common than ever. Here's a late model Chevrolet Colorado Z-71 truck's taillight.

Walter,

Chrome obviously no longer rules. Plastic is so ubiquitous it never ceases to amaze me. The thin veneer of metal that adorns many plastic objects is quite clever. I am often fooled.

That's a nice looking Pontiac TransAm.

Aloha and thanks for sharing.
