Some people will dedicate their lives to ending hunger, or making the woods a safe-space for transgender spotted owls. Me? I'd like to fix apostrophe usage among old car enthusiasts who must often indicate a year when referring to a vehicle. When abbreviating a specific year, replace the first two digits with an apostrophe: “I drive a '68 Chrysler New Yorker.” (Abbreviation of 1968) An apostrophe after a numeral is often interpreted as a footage measurement. A 68' Chrysler would not fit in the average garage. That is all.
