Now we're bringing back the remembrances... I had a '50 Nash where the
front seat folded down to make a near-full-size bed ;-)
And the vibrator-powered tube radio would run the battery down in less
than an hour, so you had to park on a hill (fortunately easy to find
in West Virginia).
In my senior year in high school I got a '53 Packard (straight 8),
that car would haul ass! My father sold it while I was at MIT... my
sister was too short to drive it :-(

I love to cook with wine. Sometimes I even put it in the food.
