Two brothers were driving from Connecticut to Maine, and they decided to spend the time brainstorming instead of playing 20 Questions or the license plate game.

It’s a 4.5-hour trek, so to kill time they began talking about difficulties in the auto body industry and how it has lagged from a technological perspective for many years.
