Hi and welcome to the community, @Profile closed. 🙂
I'm sorry to hear of your parent passing, that must have been terrible for you. It is brilliant to hear some of your hobbies and interests though. Although I can appreciate a beautiful car and drive myself, I've only got a basic knowledge of how cars work really. Just what I learned from playing Gran Turismo on my old games console.
We do have some phones that do cater to the older generation. Mainly the Doro 6520.
Phone boxes aren't completely obsolete though. In Edinburgh, some have been fitted with additional kit in order to boost the 4G signal in busy areas during New Year festivities — typically at peak time for calls to loved ones.
It's great to have you here, I'm looking forward to seeing you around the community more. 🙂
