more car culture musings...

vehicle that I have a soft spot for:

The Volkswagon "Thing" (Orange version)

learned how to drive a standard/stick shift one summer at the beach (Port Aransas, Tx.) in this vehicle. At the time, I was 15 yrs old. Also of note, the "Thing" had a standard issue 8-track player plus radio.

souped-up/customized car (an idea from years ago) that is now a "mass produced-type" automobile available in America:

One day will purchase a (previously owned) Le Car and add some wide wheels, hard-core chrome (plus some blue(?) under-chassis lighting) and slowly cruise town hugging the road. Will also have necessities such as small chain(link) steering wheel, lg furry dice hanging from rear-view mirror, and perhaps shag/fuzz on the dashboard. Am sure passersby will murmur to themselves, "Why didn't that guy just buy a 'MINI'?" Also, the Le Car has gotta have/be one of those "convertible" (canvas sun-roof) import versions.

Fun Car(s) with a Nickname:

Will also pickup a (maroon?) AMC Pacer and do the same (low-ride). Will need a three-car garage for the following:

"The Thing"


"The Bubble"

Honorable Mentions A and B:

"The Gremlin"

"The Pinto"

Bonus Points Question:

Why wasn't the Chevrolet Nova a successful vehicle when introduced to Central and South America?

Answer: "NOVA" translates to "Doesn't Go" in the Spanish/"Latin" language
