Aut cum scuto aut in scuto
Clever interior design, but on the outside it was kinda ugly.
My buddy in HS had one. He and his girlfriend really seemed to like it.
His girlfriend's dad, notsomuch.
Innovative for the time, but shudder to think what would happen in a frontal collision. Perhaps the missus would only survive.
I gues you once could drive into Disneyland
Mainly because all the passengers were ejected through the windshields in crashes, seatbelts not being a thing in 1956, and all.
I remember in 1963 we got our first car with seatbelts, it was a new Oldsmobile.
My 2003 Honda Element had fold down seats that were supposed to be used as camping beds (it was an AWD after all). But I found that when we were in Florida and my mother began to have problems, I could fold the right hand seat down and leave the rear seat at a 45 degree angle, and it became a ambulance gurney. All the way back to Massachusetts.
My mother briefly owned a 66 rambler ambassador. If I remember correctly, those seats were the only cool thing about the car!
