Perspective: Time for overhaul

One of my favorite television shows is “Overhaulin,” in which the producers look for old, beat-up, classic cars to use on the show. These cars are loved by their owners. The producers work with friends and family to confiscate the car and then, through elaborate schemes, keep the owner at bay for one week while the car is totally overhauled.
