You are an old fart. in The Bonfire March 19, 2012 Quote 'FENDER SKIRTS.' A term I haven't heard in a long time, and thinking about 'fender skirts' started me thinking about other words that quietly disappear from our language with hardly a notice like 'curb feelers.' I had a '74 Cadillac Coupe De Ville with fender skirts. Does anybody remember the 70's diet candy called "Ayds"? It had to be pulled off the market, for obvious reasons."For you see, an airplane is an airplane. A landing area is a landing area. But a dropzone... a dropzone is the people."
