This totally ignores the third option — longitudinal seating, as featured in my parents’ 1976 Mercury Marquis wagon. It had two seats that folded up from the cargo floor facing each other. It was possible to load four wee sprogs back there, but I imagine it was technically only legal to have two “way back” passengers,

This is reminiscent of the time between 1986 and 1989, or so, when aftermarket center high mounted stop lamps were a big thing. God forbid you be seen in your 1985 Datsun without that new, funky third tail light.

No news here. It’s like every other “toy” industry. The vast majority of people can’t afford boats, bikes, RVs, airplanes. Thirty or forty years ago those things were solidly in reach of people with blue collar union jobs or college degrees. Now the same people are fighting for their homes.

I honestly can’t remember. I would assume it was RHD because it was sold in the UK, but it wouldn’t have seemed strange to me if it was LHD because that’s what I was used to seeing by that point in my life.

I recently rediscovered three 2CV sales brochures in my attic. My grandfather, who owned one in the UK in the 80s, sent them to me here in the states. If you look closely at the specs page, you can see what appears to be hand written price quotes. I figured this was as good a time as any to share one.

I once took a defensive driving course because I got a ticket for doing 75 mph in a 40 mph zone, in an active work zone, through the Vatican. None of that is accurate or true, but the trooper gave me the ticket nonetheless, and so my attorney advised me that it might improve my chances of not losing my license if I Read more

Most serious cyclists, not the aforementioned kids or drunks on Huffys, maintain a pace of somewhere between 15 and 25 mph. What you seem to be missing is that people who ride on streets are actually commuting or riding to hit mileage goals for training or fitness purposes. I ride 35 miles at least once a week on a Read more
