An Automotive Riddle of Possibilities and Impossibilities

The Puzzler

RAY: This was submitted by Leo Leonard from Lynnwood, Washington. This is in the form of an automotive riddle.

What is it that we, for a long time, could rarely do with our cars and then we could, and now it would take you ten times longer to do it, if you could.

TOM: Wow. That's perfect. That's good.

RAY: Do you like it?

TOM: I like it. No one will get it.
