Email Just as some law-enforcement officers have to stay undercover, so too do certain muscle cars. My new car was black with white stripes. Edgar Hoover might frown upon the stripes, so as part of my purchase deal with Reeder Chevrolet in Knoxville, Tennessee, I had them feathered out and painted black. I was also worried about theft. This particular car had been on the Reeder lot for some time, and while there, the carburetor, air cleaner, and battery were stolen. No surprise, then, that the car had been moved into the showroom for safekeeping when I first saw it. But the aftermarket parts the dealer used to replace the stolen items were disappointing. The air cleaner was small, about 8 inches in diameter, with an open element. It was mounted on top of a 2- to 3-inch-high steel riser bolted on top of the carburetor. I later learned that the carburetor was not even the original model.

It is an opportunity for us to reflect on the language and ideas that represented each year. So, take a stroll down memory lane to remember all of our past Word of the Year selections. Change It wasn’t trendy , funny, nor was it coined on Twitter , but we thought change told a real story about how our users defined Unlike in , change was no longer a campaign slogan.

But, the term still held a lot of weight. Here’s an excerpt from our Word of the Year announcement in The national debate can arguably be summarized by the question: In the past two years, has there been enough change? Has there been too much? Meanwhile, many Americans continue to face change in their homes, bank accounts and jobs. Only time will tell if the latest wave of change Americans voted for in the midterm elections will result in a negative or positive outcome.
