Re: "go back to to cgi-bin and Geocities pages"
The way things are going now, in a decade or two all company websites will just be an interactive HD video. To check a product listing, you'll have to download a gigabyte of corporate presentation nonsense and wait ten minutes to get to the part where you can see what the company sells.
Most car company websites are already there. It's actually less hassle to drive to a dealer and pick up a printed brochure than to get the info online.
