I saw a new Lincoln with a "new" push button transmission. It's supposed to clean up the interior without levers on the console. I had a 1956 Plymouth with a push button auto transmission. The shift panel was on the dashboard. It seems that some of the "new" things are just recycled old things but you have to be a codger to remember some of them. BTW this week I received my BK62 which is a pretty close clone of Kephart's knife, another "new" old thing.
