It’s Weird to be Middle Aged (Evidence Point #29, Cars)

What does it mean if you like the 1995 version of something better than the 2013 version of something?

Here’s a car example: Audi is releasing a brand new A3 built to the almost-exact dimensions and “spirit” of their classic A4 sedan of the 90s.  I like the old one better, bless me.

(Full disclosure: I owned and loved a Volkswagen Passat in the late 90s that was based on the same corproate “platform” as the 1995-gen A4 so I’m probably emotionally biased.)
