"Well-weathered leather.  Hot metal and oil.  The scented country air.  Sunlight on chrome.  The blur of the landscape.  Every nerve aware."  Don't worry, we're not turning the podcast into a prog-rock analysis show.  However, we are using this episode to talk about cars.  Specifically, how video games might preserve automobile history as they change.  This leads into a broader discussion on how games can act as archives or as tools to convey history.  Feel free to jump into the comments with your picks for what video games should preserve for posterity.
