You hardly find these in cars anymore

In case you missed it, The Seattle Times ran a feature last week listing once-common car features that are already gone or disappearing:
   Stick shift. Automatic transmissions shift with more smarts and speed than people, even in sports cars.
   Parking brake. More cars soon will have electronically controlled parking brakes, not a mechanical pedal or lever.
   Keys. Electronic entry already has become common.
   Spare tire. You save 26 pounds and increase gas mileage by substituting a can of compressed sealant.
   Ashtrays and lighters. We’re kicking the habit.
   CD player. Going the way of the cassette and 8-track, thanks to mobile digital devices.
   Bench seats. Once abundant, buckets have rendered bench seats extinct.
