Maybe I'm a Luddite, but some of these older things can't be had anymore and I miss them.
In no particular order:
The small triagular window vents in cars that opened so that they blew tons of wind your way on a hot summer day.
Odometers that rolled rather than digital.
Lawnmowers without a safety kill switch that turns off the mower when you let go of the handle. (A little wire fixes this problem lol).
Dial timers vs digital.
Yellow corn, not that peaches and cream crap.
Fax machines instead of scanning, saving, finding the stored file, attaching the scan file, writting an intro, and sending an email.
SP's under $200 an hour.
Being out of range with a cell phone.
Having no cel phone and thus being totally out of reach.
Album covers with real artwork, instead of whatever passes now.
What do you miss, or is newer better?
