My First Car

When I was 17 years old, my Mom had finally talked my Dad into signing for me to buy a car.
I was working that summer in a Grocery store, and saving my money to find and buy my first car and we were looking everywhere people were bringing cars around to show me, trying to sell me, there were Chevy, Nash Ramblers, Dodges, but not anything I had wanted.
Then one day we went to H&H Tractor Supply and there on there lot was my Car. it was a white 2dr. Custom Deluxe, with a flat head V8, I had saved 185.00 working that summer and bought it for that.
It was a beauty and I put spinner hubcaps on it and lowering blocks, every Sunday when all the stores in our town was closed I would cruise main street and look at the reflection of my beautiful first car in the store windows.
If only I had it today, it brings back so many good memories.

Your Ideas
Smartphones are very popular nowadays. They have plenty of functions that people love and use. My first idea is inventing a common interface to bind any smartphone (iOS, Windows Phone, Android) with car system. It is obvious that we should have possibility to make a call, but I see more applications using this integration. For example I think that on car's displays we should have possibility to display copy of smartphone display (via DLNA for instance I think). It could be a function in system, that can be on/off using remote (in wheel for example). Cars should also use internet connection that produces mostly smartphone. That Internet connection could be used to serve some info for driver, share Internet connection for passengers in car via WIFi for example. Smartphones have great voice assistants now, still developing. Maybe if user had connected car and smartphone he could have access to use that voice assistant calling him by some button or buttons combination using car's remote. I think that creating that connection, open many new ways to improve convenience of driving (for example by new ideas of apps creators for mobile OS).
