Not the cars. The curbside service.

Being not an American you are probably not conversant with A&W root beer.

The beverage is still available, but there is nowhere you can go get it delivered right to your car by a young fellow in a snappy uniform.

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.
