Dodge years

Are “Dodge” years like “Dog” years — a 15-year old Dodge vehicle is actually 105? Saw a Caravan on the road the other day that was held together by its rust. We couldn’t tell if it had been in a lot of accidents, or if the pockmarks and dents were a result of the steel actually collapsing in on itself in embarrassment and/or shame.

And what would a “Honda” year be, .47 or so?

And if “embarrass” comes from “to en-bare your ass,” as it seems that it should, why is it spelled with an “m” and 2 “r”s?

Just sayin’.

    Dodges don’t just fall apart and rust, if their owners did a little upkeep on them (in this case, covering paint chips before they become a problem).

    That said, the oldest vehicles I still see around, that are just as solid as the day they were built, are old Ford pick-ups — the ones built in the 60’s and 70’s, especially.
