In honour of Car Free Day 2009 today, we’ve taken a look at what the world could be like without cars. We’ve noticed there would be a lot more bikes. Also, invention and creativity would know no bounds when moving, taking a family trip, trying to impress one’s date and making good use of one’s old car. See for yourself!

Parking directly in front of one’s house wouldn’t be a problem at all any more:

A family outing would look like this:

And parking lots like this:

We’d go to car cemeteries to visit our old friends…

… or find new uses for them:

Winter outings would be so much more romantic:

And we could still invent steel dragons:

Moving would look something like this…

The bonnet babes of yonder would be newly empowered:

Yet whoever wanted to could pimp their ride:

Even sharing a bike could be quite satisfying:

Oh, those inspiring pics make us think of Louis Armstrong’s “Wonderful World”:

I see trees of green…….. red roses too
I see ‘em bloom….. for me and you
And I think to myself…. what a wonderful world.

And everybody:

I see skies of blue….. clouds of white
Bright blessed days….dark sacred nights
And I think to myself …..what a wonderful world.
